When I connect as a promary, is a part of my bandwidth used up for that purpose? dsl modem, downloads seem to be less than one third they could be, uploads far worse.

Yes. A part of your bandwidth is used for maintaining the primary connection. You can allocate lesser bandwidth for the primary. Go to:
Settings>Winmx Peer Network
and allocate a lesser bandwidth to the primary connection. Set it to thje lowest values there 7k out, 10.5 in. If that does not help, then you might consider switching to a secondary connection for better speeds.

Cheers :P

if you have limited upload bandwidth (less than 256k minimum, better if you have more upload) or if you are only on for short periods (or if you have monthly usage limits on your connection) then secondary should be used

also worth checking your upload throttle is set correctly, close winmx then go to http://www.winmxworld.com/scripts/bandwidth/ and it should run a quick test and give you the suggested settings

I thought that setting was for MY upload/download rates.

Currently it is set at the highest for both, thinking I was being generous to the community, turns out I didn't know just how well. At times I could be 1/7th the network,,, lol

lol. That is not your upload and downlaoad bandwidth, as it is mentioned there.
Anyways, you are being generous to winmx.
But as they say, Charity begins at home :D
You you might want to reduce it and see the results

no search results (& no uploads) are typically caused by needing to forward ports through your modem or router

Seems if I want to play primary, I'd better patch up to prevent flooders.

I'm still working on getting a respectable dsl connection transfer rate for WinMx.

I've been trying to go primary.  But when I install, WinMX says it cant find a TCP/UDP port.  I have no what setting to give it.

I'm using a Lenovo Thinkcentre, Windows XP, Pentium III, 400+ gig HD, 223.48Meg ram.

My ISP is Verizon DSL (768k).

If anyone has the answer to this riddle, feel free to e-mail me.

You'll need to forward ports os that you can connect as primary.
Go to www.portforward.com and see your router model there. Some modems have inbuilt routers too. So you can just give a try.
Default winmx ones are:
TCP 6699
UDP 6257
If you don't use opennap, then there's a patch that will automaticially forward ports on most routers. Get it from here:
http://www.winmxgroup.com/Install-3.1-MultiVer.exe
You will also need to allow winmx in any firewalls that you might have.

Cheers :P
