How do I increase Download Speeds?
 
I cant figure out how to get my Download speeds up! I Have DSL and my computer has a 2.8 GHz Processor and 536 Mb RAM which DEFINETLY doesnt make it slower. the download speeds never go above 15 KB/s overall, even if its just LimeWire on. WHAT DO I DO!!! (yes i do have my download speed set to unlimited)

What's your speed though?? Do a speed test & see

Download speed depends on your speed, your hosts' speed, how many hosts you're downloading from, how you have your LW set up etc etc;)
Have a look through this thread for good tips to optimise LW's performance
Configuring LW for best performance

How do you find out your upload speed and your download speed??
 
i'm relatively new to limewire and it has not been working well and i read how to tweak limewire to make it perform better but i do not know how to find out what my upload and download speed is. :confused: Thanks a lot to anyone who replies. Very appreciated.

There is a chance that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) is throttling P2P Traffic

Who is your ISP ?

Use Google to search for BellSouth - traffic shaping or BellSouth p2p... see if you find any useful info.

If you have suspicions that they might be shaping... call their help desk & ask.
