Greetings!

Well, I've been a WinMX user for about 5 years, and first off, it's good to see it come back.

I recently moved and had to switch ISP's, and my U/L speed is less than 1 K/s, with Rogers (the crooks)...I called them, and they DID confirm that they throttle the bandwidth for P2P file sharing. I let them know that where I moved from (Hamilton, Ontario) my ISP there (MountainCable) was a dream as for the speed that it let through...at times hitting 500-600 K/s...yet here near Toronto it is the shits...

I'll be looking to dump Rogers' services in the very near future, much the same way I rid myself of Bell/ Sympatico services for taking my hard-earned $$ and not providing what I pay them for...Bell would try to lure you back with cheaper rates (after you dump the bastards) and Rogers' seems to think they can promise one thing, but limit you where they feel like (paying for 5 Mb/s, can't even get 1 K/s).

One of the main reasons I use the internet is to download entertainment (music, videos) and yet I have a slower speed than dial-up days...

I believe ALL users of Rogers Cable/ Internet services here in Canada should let Rogers know that when you take someones money, you should at least provide what you promise...nothing in their service agreement saying they'll limit what they say you'll get...some companies get charged for doing this, and I'm not sure why they are exempt...fraud in my mind.

I've tried changing the ports for UDP and TCP, and it just makes it worse. With the software that they use, they'll figure out which ever settings you use, eventually.

James I think you still havent read this thread.. its not just about ports and as Warrlock is pointing out.. there are NO port changes that are known to work now with most throttling companies.. Although, I do still recommend you give some a try.. its not doing it.

When this all started they used technology that worked based on default ports and so of course changing those worked until they found the new ones.. however, they have since moved to software that recongnizes p2p traffic by packets sent and unfortunately at this time WinMX is easy target for this it seems..

If your hinting that Warrlocks post isnt relevant it most certainly is.

I join you in asking folks that use Rogers, Shaw, Cox, Cablevision, Tiscalli, Pipex, and any other scum charge for service then lie cheat and steal compaines to let them know your the paying customer and thier issues with bandwidth use need to be addressed in other ways or they are not going to have to worry about it, because they will have no customers that really use the internet.

Hi BudCarFan.. sorry to say.. im a Gordan fan.. but that aside.. i totally hate to tell you that yes about your only hope here is to change ISPs..

The reason I say this is as mentioned in other posts on this thread.. most (might as well say all, as I'm not aware of any atm port changes works on) are using packets to identify the p2p traffic and throttle you instead of just blocking or shaping traffic on default ports.  This means basically that all the port changes in the world cant get past the software they are using now to do this..  :(

It seems they´re cracking down on us here too. I also download torrent files. I just got connected about 3 weeks ago and the phone company has a type of net nanny installed into the network. It´s not on my computer at all. It filters out what sites it allows you to see and you have to ask it´s permission to unblock you. Now it´s blocking my access to these torrent sites. How long before they crack down on everything. Why don´t they bother the porn freaks instead?

hi J,

That sounds like more then likely you have had something cause your router to 'reassign' your Internal IP. its a common problem.  First thing to do is check that

Go to Start > Run > type in         cmd
Then say OK
Now in the black box type in            ipconfig
Then hit enter.

Now look to see what your IP Address is listed as.

Then go to the router configuration page and make sure your forwarded ports are set for that IP.

If this is all correct then try removing WinMX from any software or OS firewall rules and restart and try.

Hi

I have a problem with dowloading.  Once a search is made and I want to restart an uncompleted file I have problems.  The file comes up yellow but when I right click or press the downlaod or mannually resart it hangs the whole of the WINMX program.  In the background search still continues and uploads still happen but I can't change to transfers from the search sections.  I can use the icon in the toolbar to exit etc but I can't download.  I have tried uninstalling but hasn't helped and I have tried reconfiguring ports but nothing changes.  HELP.

I run XP with DSL modem. i have the latest patches and run 3.54. It doesn't read patch operational in the top message box though.

Hi Amazing747

I was waiting for more information in the other thread you already posted this problem in.

This sounds like possibly fake files.. I cant be sure but a incomplete that you try to finish, if lets say it is a fake file.. would definatly lock up your winmx and possible cause it to crash even.

It would really help me to help you if you would provide us the information asked about your system.

Is your Update bar blank?
Where did you download the WinMX from to reinstall?
Do you have any anti spyware programs, or worm protection or things running when you install?

How much of this file is completed?
Do searches show results?  Does this only happen when incomplete files?

My update bar is blank.

I downloaded my reinstall from the WinMX World web site.

I run the AVG virus checker during the install.  Thats all though.

The incomplete file varies in amount downloaded.

The results show and the hang happen swith new file requests to download as well.

Ok Amazing,

Something is protecting your Hosts file not allowing the installer to place the correct information on it which is Patch Operational, This is what your patch should place in the hosts file (one entry for the update bar only). 

Possibly shut down your AVG just during instalation may solve this, however im not aware of AVG write protecting the hosts file.  Its usually anti spam or anti spyware things such as spybot Search & Destroy or similar that protect it.  In any case that entry wont effect your patch, it still works fine, its just harder to confirm that you 'ARE' indeed using the WinMX Group patch and that its in place and working.

Your problem however sounds more like a primary problem, so the next thing I'd like you to do for me is to switch your WinMX to secondary and then retry the searches for new files or incompletes and tell me what happens.

Hi, I have recently changed to a different isp provider and frankly I have had a better chance at downloading now with the same speed then I ever did before with Rogers, the sad thing about Rogers is again they tell you it isn't them under any means WHICH I find to be a bunch of crock! what's worse is they told me to reset my modem, ok done that now like 500 times tell me something I don't know, then they told me to reconfigure my computer  :shock:.. alright now lets be honest you can only do so much to the computer itself before you actually crash it or kill it all together completely!!!  :?

Then they tell me that they don't put blocks or filters ON their modems because don't you know that isn't how Rogers is so now we're all back to square one again trying to figure out why our downloads and uploads just plain suck! ...  :x

I ended up calling them up and told them "look it.. it ain't me.. it ain't my computer and it sure as hell not anything else having to do with me.. it's you.. your the ones causing me this aggrivation I fork out over $100 a month for good speed and I get crap speed whats the problem here" .. only for them to sit there on the other end and go "uh uh uh umm well I don't.. I I I .. well I uh uh umm"  :lol: OK we heard this line before right ppl?? .. so needless to say for anyone who has rogers internet .. piece of advice from someone who had them for 4 yrs.... GET RID OF THEM!!! sooner the better!  :)

They got told along the effects to stick their isp, modem, service and everything else in between with their precious lil ol blocks and filters up their ying yang and turn it around a severe 480 degree angle then thrust it elsewhere...  :lol:

Why I stayed with them so long god knows but honestly ppl your better off just to change your isp provider to someone more reliable.. I got the same speed for LESS the cost .. instead of paying out that huge $100 a month I now pay out $45 a month.  :D

Just rogers has a lot of problems with their internet and I'll be honest with you all I am never going back to them again, too much money for crappy speed isn't my thing.. I have completed my father's 11 cd's in a matter of 6 hrs. with my new isp provider then I did with rogers which took 2 - 3 days!! UGH!! talk about lame eh?  :lol:

So yeah anymore problems with the internet like downloading and uploading change your isp ...believe you me you'll be much better off without rogers and paying a whopping bill for such crappy speed.  8)

Anyone Living in the Toronto, Ontario area change to Spectrum Global .. they are better... for first and last months is believe it or not $95 then anytime after that ... $45 .. muahahah!! good deal eh?.. half the price then rogers! WOOT and I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my speed!  :lol: :D

I use TCP - 58202  / UDP - 61202  here and my winmx works great.

When it comes to knowing what TCP means or does, I have no clue.  All I know is that my winmx wasn't connecting and I down loaded the patch, uninstalled the winmx and installed it again.  So reading through this topic I came across this one I quoted and used the numbers in the port(?) and HOORAY winmx is connected. 

I love winmx and hated having it not work, I refuse to use limewire. Winmx never gave me problems until I couldn't connect. 

So it is working now because I changed the numbers to what this poster said. and it works, so I say thank you

1st time I've read this thread (i think  :lol:) and thought I'd make a few comments, there arn't any WinMX 'friendly' ports as such, in fact anything would work, I think the main problem people have is when they are behind a NAT router with more than one computer, port forwarding can become slightly confusing for some.
each WinMX client needs its own set of ports, different computers on your local network, or different instances of WinMX for that matter cannot use the same ports, the client needs to bind itself to the ports assigned and once they have been bound to one instance of MX, they are then unavailable for the other to use, hopefully this small reference will help people experiencing this sort of problem in future.

This is simply a suggestion and in no way how WinMx 'has' to be set

Lets use a really common private range - 192.168.0.1/255

Router IP :  192.168.0.1
PC1:          192.168.0.2    WinMX Ports: TCP: 26699 / UDP: 26257
PC2:          192.168.0.3    WinMX Ports: TCP: 36699 / UDP: 36257
PC3:          192.168.0.4    WinMX Ports: TCP: 46699 / UDP: 46257

By adding the last digit of the IP address to the beggining of the standard WinMX Ports this should help you remember exactly which computer is using which ports

 :D

When you set this in the Westell you should set it to the range like so

Global range for TCP 6699 - 6699
Base Port  6699

Same for your UDP set to 6257 - 6257
Base 6257
