I think it would be easier to understand for common users if you put something like: Modem GPRS/3G Satellite Calbe DSL T1 T3 Or like in rmDC++ or similiar, you can choose your speed for exapmle "Down 8M, Up 1 M". It used to be like that, but since cable and DSL (in particular) connections...

I haven't tried segmenting DC myself, but I don't have anything against other people using them. Don't know about the "overhead" thingy (many connections equals lot of overhead), but I would think that would be overshadowed by the fact that many slower sources add up to much more speed ove...

You are also considering users cheaters and lamers by default. Moreover, it's not that hard for the user to determine, they all have a contract with their ISPs. What I miss is common sense. 0.005Mib=5,12KiB=40,96Kib. Which ISP offers 40.96KiB upload bandwidth? Is there such an ISP which is 'very co...

I've never understood people's fascination with the connection type. It's not used by anything. It's not checked for validity by anything. It's completely pointless. It's not exactly pointless, but it does lack merit since it is only based users own notification. Many users haven't set it right and...

Really? ATLEAST 10Mbps UPload? So even faster ones are available?

Even so, the highest option 100MiB/S is plain ridiculous... But if it was meant to be 100Mbps that would make sense, as high as it is.

Also, it seems that it is indicated as MiB/s which is quite inpractical since it is quite a huge speed. That is, megaBYTES/s, not megabits/s as it propably is meant to be.

The most common upload speed in my country is a 0.5Mbps/s DSL, which would mean around 0.06 MiB/s.

@msyit

Do you not check which file has the most sources when you initially start a download? That's what I do; I do a search, a name search (which is basically what you need), get results, browse to tth section and arrange the results by tth and pick the one that has most sources available.

Doesn't the latest DC++ version include UPNP support to configure the windows firewall automatically? Haven't tried it myself though, since I use Sygate.

A bit off topic, but....

Weird ISP, are you not paying for a certain up/down speed? Why would they care if you take up all of your (paid) bandwidth 24/7?

Indeed, the CDM's and other op-modded clients are going to be plenty confused when 402 hits the playing fields...Atleast for a while.

Zone Alarm firewall is also known to sometimes mess up downloads , especially resumed ones.

It sounds like you both should spend some time going through which services you are running, after that take a look at the other programs you are running, are they all necessary? When my Win 2003 boots up I'm only running 24 processes. Running a lot of programs and/or servers/daemons I might reach ...

It's easier than you think. There's about 20-30 default Windows processes. DC processes number another 3. Of course there is iTunes, which comes with the iPodHelper service, mIrc, Trillian, TorrentStorm (bitorrent) Apache, mySQL, explorer, iExplore, CoolMon, rainlendar, daemon tools, UltraMon, I me...

Ziisas, DPM. You have a whopping 80 processes running and you're complaining about high CPU usage? I don't think I could even find 80 tasks to run on my system...

Re: Hashing slow down computer too much

It wasn't until i searched the forums for a while i found out that the program was hashing my shares (250GB). I couldn't use my computer in any way while hashing! I couldn't even use winamp! it was reeeaally slow! (i've got an AMD XP 2600+ with 512 MB RAM). I've got a similar setup, with a smaller ...
