When this box appears what i do is click save as and just add a fullstop to the file name and click okay and it usually downloads. just remember when you download more than one of a particular item when the first one has downloaded cancel the others as so not to get two or more.

The new LW 4.12.3 will automatically add a no. to the file-name so that problem is solved.

The improvements you can find here so you can always bookmark this page to see what is happening with the newest version if they have gotten around to updating the documentation.

Get LW from here (unless a pro user):

Or get the beta from here (unless a pro user) :

Pro users get official & beta releases from their own personal pro download page!!! ;)

I do exactly as you say, but all my download does is get slower and slower.

stured July 3rd, 2006 12:29 PM

erm you expect help? well im gonna need some an actual problem to overcome, you say you have done all that is said...havew you done it correctly? it takes some fine tuning..and by getting slower and slower, do you mmean it actualy does get slower and slower or its just real slow? because the speed is afected by a few things:

time of day- people with the file have to be online, and the right people
your internet connection
their internet connection (only go for those with full stars of quality)
number of people who have the file (time of day)
try it with different files and see what happens

without a proper problem, im afraid i can provide little/no further help

When i search, the speed starts to go down and stay the same, even after I am done searching. But when I restart limewire, and download again, its back up to the normal speed.
