First means disconnected. Change connection cache, make sure BS is cleared with appropriate ports in your windows firewall (may need to make separate windows firewall rules for each of both upn & tcp & the ports you are connecting through.)

Click on link below to find new connection cache for BS. See attachment below, unzip. Then place the files into the db folder within the BS program folder. :) Bearshare MUST be closed at that time! ;)

Edit: see http://www.gnutellaforums.com/host-c...installer.html for obtaining fresh BearShare connection cache. If that fails, see http://www.gnutellaforums.com/host-c...bearshare.html

Mine is 3.2 GHz, 16 GB ram, 4 x TB drives. Anything I'm missing? My BS beta connects fine, perhaps a tcp issue however with router. :p :) (udp seems to do fine however. I did set up a separate udp firewall rule however.)

How many Phex users do you connect to on average, as either ultrapeer or with them as leafs? Phex is very connected to the 'other' gnutella users, not totally under the spell of LW. That's why I like Phex, it connects to hosts not necessarily of LW users & can find those difficult to find files over the other side of the gnutella network so to speak. :)

Lol um whats the db folder?? sorry but im a big noob. I used bearshare for the last 4 years and never had a problem. I just got a new comp and redownloaded it. If you could give me a small step by step that would be great!

let me guess...

now that you've come to the conclusion that LimeWire is more aptly called LameWire you've decided that BearShare hasn't given up the ghost yet...

I haven't seen a Phex node in months. Probably a coincidence.

On your PC you probably have multiple cores. Whenever you start BearShare
go into Taskman and set BearShare's affinity to use all the cores you find.
That will speed it up a bit. ;]

Hey Aaron, maybe it would be easier if you just came over to my house and did all of this for me. lol
