Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Run your search again. That will find more sources for the files.

What kind off answer is this. If you want faster download rates then you have to click on setup in the menu and then click on connection. Click on custom and in the bandwidth capacity window put a very high number like 20000. Now I know that your internet may not be so fast but it does not matter. I have a 4mbs internet connection and with this setting I have seen bearshare jump up to 15mbs download rate. Now another thing you should do while you have the window open for settings is to click on downloads now change the numbers in options to the max (except for the MB of free disk space left). In the get upt to enter 50. In the with up to enter 999. In the And up to enter 999. Another thing to check is your Advanced tab, there is the Secure Channels function. If you have activated this or if it is activated for some other reason then this may be slowing you down also. There may be other ways to make it faster but these are just a few that I know.

Changing that rate number in setup has no effect on your connection. All it does
is calibrate the speed gauge, so you might aswell leave it as accutate as possible
instead of raising it higher than what speed you already get. All you get for that is
a speed guage which makes your connection look slower.

Changing your download limits to the numbers you suggest are pointless because
the software will still limit you to 50 and the real world rarely gets up to 30.
Allowing 999 in the GUID was just an inside joke between us beta testers and the
programmers.

The best way to propel slow downloads along is to keep the searches going
because that is the only way to find more sources from which you can download.

You can also right-click on any download or highlight them all and right-click,
then select "Find more sources" and that will send out a search for the exact file.
Only BearShare and Shareaza return results on this kind of search, but it does work.

What i had said were test that I have done and I stand by it. I have seen differences in changing the settings. I do agree with you on the find more sources because I know that works also. Another thing that works is right clicking on the peers that are blank and trying to connect to them. Because I have seen that Bearshare does not try to connect to every peer. As for what I said before I stand by it and also know other people that will stand by it. Don't get me wrong I love using Bearshare but it is far from perfect like plenty of other programs.

I know each of these functions in detail because I tested each one added since
version 2.3. The best you could do is raise download limits to 50 and that was
exclusively on the betas. All the other versions had lower limits, like 21 for Pro and
lower for the adware and Lite versions.

Changing the speed gauge calibration affects only the speed gauge, as always.
