"Downloading From 8 Hosts" problem

everytime i download files on limewire, it only downloads from 8 Hosts and never any higher. is it possible to download from more than just '8 hosts'? if so, how do i do this?

That's normal. LW Basic = max of 8 hosts & I've heard LW Pro a max of 10 hosts.
The reason for this is to keep as many open upload slots as possible to help other people both connect to the network & for getting a downld started. eg: If LW were able to downld with 100 hosts, then that would be 92 slots unavailable for other people to connect to. ie: It keeps the network working fast & downlds quick to connect to. Some other networks you end up queued for hours on end b/c they don't have such conventions. WinMX was such an example.

ah yes, no i see why!

i was recently using shareaza for the first time and found that it was very slow. your explaination make perfect sense because shareaza was downloading from 100+ sources but taking forever it the queing process!

thank you.
