Problems, any help please.(never finds any searches and just says 'queued')
I am currently using Bearshare version 5.2.5, I have used it since it came out along time ago and it has been fine and really quick...until now.

It loads up and everything but when I try and search for an artist or a song i get the same message and it never finds any searches and just says 'queued'.

This is what the message says
"You have not been able to sucessfully connect to the Gnutella network. This indicates there is a problem" Then it says something about AOL, but I'm not with AOL.

Could someone please help me or tell me somewhere to get songs, I really need music atm!!!

Thanks, Glen. ~

Try update hosts cache .
Download '' here -
Extract connect.txt and gwebcache.dat from the zipfile
into your \Program Files\Bearshare\db folder .

*Extracting into the folder will overwrite the current files.
Might be better to rename them first.
i.e rename/change extension connect.txt , gwebcache.dat to .sav or .bak
so you can use these back if it doesn't work.

I am having the same problem, hence, joining the forums & searching. I have been using BearShare for about 7 years now. I "upgraded" to v7 and will not use it (who needs that social network/chat crap on it now?) and thought maybe 5.25 didn't work anymore.

I will try advice from Morpheus above.

If you follow what morpheus said then it works straight away and it connects.

Good luck!

Here's another cache download. I maintain it regularly.

I am lost in space. I'm using Limewire (I didn't know there were other options) and can't connect either. Just installed the latest upgrade but no change. Every time you start a new search, the msg says something to the effect of "Limewire is still connecting, you have to wait before downloading". I'm ad-libbing, but you get the gist. Any ideas? Should I download Bear Light, or Bear Share instead of Limewire? Is there anything better? Is there one that works consistantly? I sound pathetic, don't I? LOL!
Any help will be greatly appreaciated.

Just so people know before downloading or installing,
the normal Bearshare version has adware bundle , but
no trojan or virus detected when scanned.
Bearshare Lite is the clean version , no adware bundles included.
Also there is the Bearshare 5.1.0 beta recommended by AaronWalkhouse,

If still having trouble with Limewire connection, you'll need to post in
LW section together with your system details , where the experts can help.
