Surprised this works.

Being trying to download a file for more than a week now, but I couldn't because 'Need more resources'

Just did what Sleepless suggested and it started downloading now from 8 hosts, amazing.

What you have to do is to Right-click on the file being downloaded (the lower panel where the download progress is being displayed), and then go to search->search more specifically.

It works

Help!

You can also search normally for the same file. Just find it the same way you did when you first started downloading it.

Version 4.9.23

I can do that but then the programme just tells me I'm downloading it already - what is the advantage?

Just searching and displaying the results is enough, you don't have to start downloading again

OK I have upgraded and now I have that option and it does seem to make a difference.

In the search box what is HASH? if it is the number of uploaders for that file why is it not the same as the number from which i am downloading?

Also I have the firewall symbol at the bottom despite having made limewire an exception on windows firewall, should I worry about this? Will it make any difference?

I don't mean press for download again. This is for when you are downloading a file allready. Don't think you read the previous post carefully. By finding results for the file you're downloading, in a lot of cases your downloadspeed will improve.

hi there,

i'm new to this stuff.

i use win xp sp2 256mb ram, norton anti virus 2006, 64 kbps connection speed (cable connection) and can download @ 8 to 10 KB/s a 700mb file using limewire 4.10.9 pro

i would like to know whether i could increase this speed somehow ?

please help me.

That's about the best speed that you can expect from a 64kbps connection:)
