      Re: Connect & Soulseek

      It's definitely traffic shaping mate. I've just come off Connect, where I was having the same problems you are, and now I'm on Max it works a treat.

      I gave up on it, tbh, but now I can use it again I'm happy1

      Hope you can sort something out - I know how you feel.

      Re: Connect & Soulseek

      As soulseek is only for music I dont mind downloading at 30k which is what I used to get on my 512k connection back in the day but not bein able to download on it is makin me angry. I think they maybe are blocking soulseek traffic as limewire works but I cant get most of my music from there.

      Yeah, it's annoying but unfortunately there's no way around it. There isn't an option to encrypt traffic or anything either, so I can't suggest anything - I was stuck as well.

      Re: Connect & Soulseek

      I'm on connect. I use direct connect mainly. in my experience it is quite random as to whether you get limited or not. sometimes I download at 400-500kbs, or if the cap is on I get upto 10kbs.

      the thing is when I have full speed it stays like that all day. the cap seems to kick in at about 6pm. usually if i am connected before that i get full speed. its probably dependent on where you live as well.

      also bear in mind that soulseek is slow. i never used to get good speeds. try direct connect and see how you get on with that. search for dc++

      good luck

      Re: Connect & Soulseek

      yeah it could be. have you tried a speed test? this one works well:

      Namesco BroadbandMax ADSL Broadband Bandwidth speedtest | Test your ADSL Broadband connection speed

      see what it gives as your download/upload speed
