use winmx only on one computer at a time... (this will prevent confusion while getting it working right)

if searches work secondary then most likely the problem is that your ports arent forwarded correctly... both the udp and tcp ports need to be open to the outside world...

6699 for tcp
6257 for udp

are default
can be used to test the tcp port but will most likely not work on udp... (if its closed or times out keep reading..)

if you are using the patch from then uPnP should forward the ports automatically...
some routers may have troubles and you have to do it manually however.... -- if you cant find help there try the help channel; Help_BABA1354BABE

simply type (or copy/paste) it in the 'filter' bar and hit enter.. you dont even need to be connected to winmx to connect to the channel...

there are many there that can help if the site itself doesnt have the information you need... ...including those that can test your ports and even set them for you should the need arise..

ok,start with where i was. i had and old linksys router,worked fine for a long time. it was set up with a static ip, which i call a permanent ip. i am no router expert. when i first had it, winmx stopped working and i got tech help from linksys ,and problem was solved when they helped me set up a static ip. i also changed the udp and tcp default ports just for added help. for a couple years of more,this worked fine and i have been very happy with winmx and recommended it to lots of people. then all of the sudden the uploads started failing and searches only became possible on SECONDARY connection and downloads probably became about 80% less successful . i tried a few things, checked firewall and all the typical stuff, no help. since we been adding laptops and other wireless items i decided maybe it was time to update my router since it was over 3 years old.

 fast forward .... i got a new Valet Plus router. tried winmx again ..... same issues , the uploads started failing and searches only became possible on SECONDARY connection and downloads probably became about 80% less successful . i did a static ip with and without port forwarding, no help. i did port forwarding, no help. i did all the typical things everyone suggests. i was not fond of having a static ip anyway,so that does not upset me it failed.

      i got 3 pcs,all having same issues. one self built, one hp ,one toshiba. i have time warner cable in western ohio (dayton) , i use windows security essentials, ValetPLus router, i am pretty good with pc maintenance and all 3 pc's run great. i am using  v3.54 beta 4 . 

  i really like winmx, but i thought maybe it was time to make the move to a torrent program, talk about hard to setup,understand and find older songs ...GEESH. so i decided one more time to figure out what is up with winmx.

   anyone help me get winmx back to working great again?
