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.

OK, here's one for you. minus all the rhetoric & Tech vs. blah blah variables.
OK, Thai just saved us 10 posts back and forth. These are GOOD averages pinging LW & PC Pit stop @ 1 and 1.5 'bytes'/ms round trip respectively. I also tested my download speed @ PC Pit stop with a good average download speed: 4519 kilobits per second or 3354 kilobytes downloaded in 5.938 seconds
OK, now. I don't know if this is what everybody else is talking about when they say that LW is slow for them and bare in mind that I have gone over many of the "optimizing" suggestions from around the site including virus considerations. In comparing then and now with time and that little virus that has been going around LW in between being the only variables that "I" can think of.
I can search fine and my LW bandwidth meter connects to turbo OK with 5 ultra peers. This is where it all derails: Ultra peers tend to be unstable (holding on to them);4 star search items of 100mb with up to say 80-90 hosts @T3 or better either just hang on 'connecting....' or 'waiting count down...' only to crap out with that silly 'awaiting sources' come back. Now I know that LW would like to explain this away as the cute little eccentricities of p2p networking but that's crap. As soon as 3 weeks ago I would only have to pick one of those out of the multitudes and I would have it downloaded in no time @ 6-10 KB/s, /host. On average. Of course some times I would just blow that away and have 10-12 of those done in an hour, easy. Now, I know your wondering....? I'll search and find whatever I want with nice prime results. Lets say, 10 files; @50megs; with 100 sources 'each'; with 4 Star T3 connections, yadda yadda. I may get one of those in one day. That's as apposed before with 20 times the data or more in one hour.
Now from what I've seen around the site, it's hard to pick out what each person is calling slow but it appears that a lack of search results is congruent with their speed issuse. Mine is not. I have taken the time and had a look from thread to thread as well as looking elswhere prior to posting this issue with no luck. I know that somebody is going to say, 'did you remember to put the on switch to the off possition?' and I will feel shame. Right now shame is a small price.

The gnutella network is very dynamic. Hosts are continually logging on and off. So a file you can find this minute might not be there the next. Also the network is being continually flooded with fake files which include the viruses.

And also see other links for tips & info even if they only indirectly apply: 1. Overpeers, _ 2. MediaSentry, _ 3. Mediadefender
4. Turbo-Charged Connection but can't download, ____ 5. Recognising Fake files, ____ 6. Avoiding fake files
You should also see this thread: How to find music

I hope this helps answer you question. Unless your not asking a question, but just making an observation. I'm not quite sure.

Forgive me if I've misunderstood your post here, but it sounds like you're the victim of the fake files that are flooding the network (you don't mention fake files, so I don't know if you're aware of this problem).

The search item may have 4 stars, it may have heaps of hosts (Danger, Will Robinson!!!!) but if it hangs on connecting then needs more sources, counts down, doesn't find them...sounds like fakes to me. And being able to download a file one week successfully, then being unable to download a file the next week is typical of this problem. As time goes by, the network is flooded with more of this crap. The golden rule these days is to stay away from the files with lots & lots of hosts. The links that 6_pac left have good info & tips to help.

My download speed is ok for the most part, but my upload speed is really bad. Like 1 - 5 KB/s and they NEVER finish to 100% complete, it always says "Transfer Interupted". I did a download speed test and my upload rate is 465 kbps (58.1 KB/s). So I set my upload speed in LimeWire to unlimited and put slots to 4 and people connecting to 4.

What gives?

Ok, I feel moderately better. You see, I've been trying to reply here for 2 f#$%^&ing days but in both cases for some f#$%^&ed up reason here the text field resets and I loose everything. I'm the type that really needs a spell checker as I dislike typing almost as much as being forced to use an MS based system. Tell me MAC users...it really is better on that side isn't it?
I guess what I didn't get across was that prior to broaching this here I opted to use my eyes and not my mouth as a first reaction to my woes. That said I know why I got cookie cutter responses. Again due to curiosity and guile exceeding my actual knowledge, and then of course self imposed frustration, ahhhh, I digress... What about JAVA issues? Virtual Memory? System Cache? Potential Memory leak within the LW App.? No one ever touches on elements outside of LW. Another thing, ever since I re installed LW (Like 6 times now) it can take the installation but it can't hold on to the installation. Getting "Limewire is having an internal Problem" and then hangs. When I restart the app. I have to go over some all of my pre sets. This sucks. And are there really so few so called "ULTRAPEERS" Out there? that I can't maintain 5 or 4 or even 3???!!!

So what!? Your question(s) are vague. Do you want to spell it out?

Check thru the LW beta archives section. Answers are not easy because different systems behave differently, amount of incomplete or shared files makes a major difference. Version of Java, etc.
