Losing WinMx
« on: December 23, 2008, 01:07:15 am »
I 've been using WinMx for many years, and have usually let it run for days on end. Lately, I have noticed that all of a sudden I lost my connection after only a few hours and can not regain it, except to do a complete shut down, power down my modem & router. Do a restart & hope. I have reinstalled winmx, mapped my ports in router. Has any one else experienced this? I'm trying to figure it out whether its my end or something else.
Any help, ideas would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks,
Old Gunny

gunny it could be caused by the current general internet disruption reported here https://forum.winmxworld.com/index.php?topic=7490.new.html#new
When undersea cable is cut, traffic is rerouted and can overload other lines. Check to see if it is not only Winmx having problems. There have been a couple of posts here this week about winmx crashing before it gets a connection, winmx will do this sometimes if there isn't a clearly routed connection avaialble.
I hope it clears up for you, here in Australia I have noticed the disruption by my normally steady speed dsl connection slowed  down dramatically.

Tig & Valor,
Tig, my modem is less then a month old the only thing I've changed recently is switching from DSL to cable & putting a router in the sysytem.
Valor, I down loaded the program you recommended. I'll install it later this week.
Thanks you all, I'm glad to see that winmx is still the winmx I "joined" years ago.

Ya if u added a router to your cable line, it will have to be portforwarded, or if upnp enabled our winmx community patch from patch.winmxconex.com does automatic upnp port forwarding gunny . also depending on your nrew cable line, alot of the US ones interfere with p2p traffic, which cable provider did you sign up with?
