Again traffic shaping can be the reason utorrent is blazing fast. If you get 5mb ps for the first 20 seconds of every connection and your making over 5000 connections per second on utorrent all to different people your going to get your max speed where as on limewire and winmx your making one connection to one person for a very long time. and they can prolly only get about 300kb/s max. if you get shaped then well..

I got the latest community patch 1.0 by Eagle

The thing is, programs like WinMx, LimeWire, Ares, Shareaza all are slow

But Utorrent has huge up and download speeds and SoulSeek is rather fast too.

Looks like the traffic generated by these programs somehow don't get noticed by the ISP and aint slowed down.

I made a written complaint with my ISP, one of the answers except that they perform Traffic Shaping was that in their tems of conditions there are no promises of a minimal delivered speed :!:

actually, interesting that you only nominate uploads as slowed...

for all or just some, and only recently?

theres lots of factors at play here, but it could be something as boring as your source being slow too

Hi Joshua,

All setting are ok, but how do you explane UTorrent speeds like hell and Winmx just won't go?

On the other hand: when i see you write this:

I have connected directly to my Modem, without using my Netgear Router.
The speed went up again, as usual.

it would point at the router not correctly set up

well provided that you are a long time user and asuming for that reason that your winmx settings are not limiting speed, ports are open, ip is static, and no protection program is interfering....

there s just about one answer to this i think... you gave it yourself allready and your provider has admitted it

if all the above is correct there is nothing to be confused about anymore and the choice is simple ... do you let your isp get away with not giving what you payed for or not?

you could still try a few port changes but i doubt if that will do anything (and while you are at it.. check if the up/down limits are off ..just to be sure)

usually when an isp throttles you it will be done at busy hours and not all 24 hours, maybe worth checking at other  hours?

As Silver tries to tell, A resident, which means a running antivirus program, should be at least one of the applications your windows machine is running. No matter if you just explore the web or use any P2P program.

The matter on anti virus was brought up by me, warning you about the use of soulseek which is one of the best known virus infectors. So, use it with great care expecting every file you download to be infected.

I don't quite understand what your message about Avast Anti Virus has to do with this whole issue????????

« on: June 14, 2009, 08:37:08 am » (if you already dont have an up to date resident virus scanner)

they have a free version linked right on the front page and it even has a resident p2p scanning system along with the usual resident scanner....

truth be told a resident virus scanner should be standard fare on a windows machine regardless if you are downloading from p2p (winmx included) or just surfing the web...

If you use soulseek, be certain you have the very best antivirus software you can find or you wil be loosing loads of time to recover and clean infections if not loosing loads of files :(

ares galaxy is another good one (make sure to get the one from sourceforge) once you get used to its sometimes really odd quirks...

make sure you have pg2 installed (and updated) as well when using ares... or any p2p for that matter... the blocklist for MX blocks for MX but not the rest of the p2p apps users may be running....

and of course theres the good ol standby of bittorrent....

Guess what, I''ve been trying all sorts of P2P applications, and there is one that works great, it's called SoulSeek, I don't know what this programm does to avoids traffic shaping ( AKA bandwith squeezing) , but it works great!
