Wait a few minutes for LW to find a replacement & wait until your connection has stabilized. Then see if search has improved. Then repeat process only if necessary, (remembering spam is a fact of life nowadays). Same principle applying to (a).

But for getting into Ultrapeer mode, if forcing is not working, then perhaps your LW is simply not behaving well enough to become one, else there are more than sufficient ultrapeers in your region already & more are not needed. You should definitely need to have sufficient free up & down bandwidth available. Firewall & connection problems will prevent UP mode.

Anything new on this? I am running File_Girls Pirate Edition which I assume is pro and not basic? I have never been selected for an UP yet. I have sufficient up and download bandwidth. I disconnect one or two ultrapeer hosts after a couple of hours and 3 new ones will pop up "connecting" but only one will always stick, leaving me still with just 5 ultrapeer hosts stuck in a leaf node position.
