Hey guys, why don't you try areslite? it downloads faster than the regular ares filesharing program, and has found everything i've searched for:D

I use limewire and love it. It downloads quickly and has its own player to play songs. The only problem is that it uses java and that is a pathway for viruses. Limewire also claims it does not bundle its software with spyware anymore, but that doesnt mean it doesnt bring them about. So its your choice. I choose to take the chance with limewire because I used winmx and hated it. It was slow, and I was sick of using media player to play songs. Limewire has many more users which means many more files to find. But remember, piracy can bring you trouble and so can the viruses/spyware that sometimes tag along with P2P networking. I chose to take the chance and I am not having any problems as of yet, but I'm not saying that you won't.

Good luck

I have been using WinMX for years now and i Run LeecHammer For people who dont share files when your computer tells you you cant send or receive TCP connection just hit ok or find someone who can tell you how to map a port through your modem and router then you will be able too, and on the main connections tab make sure you are using the SECONDARY conecction not primary i have full 100 mb/s Cable from mediacom and i can d/l a song in about 30 seconds and a movie in about 30 min sometimes longer primary connection is for people with no LAN or router try that and let me know if you still have problem im not coming back here so my email is D_SnipAL@hotmail.com just title the message WinMX Help.

When you setup WinMX i dont care what connection you have use the Secondary connection you will have much better results and always remember to connect to your open nap server lists on the second network connection open nap protocol tab. also go to settings and put the check mark for the limits on incoming/outgiong bandwidth to 1000000 after awhile also winmx will remember which open nap severs you connected to the best and that had most users and will delete others off the list for me its very fast on any download :tazz:

This thread is being closed. I can't believe someone dug this out as it was well hidden down in the archives. Since the last posting, we have incorporated a rule here at GeeksToGo. We do NOT allow discussion of p2p type programs anywhere on the site, nor do we offer assistance with them. :tazz:

Anyone breaking this rule after being warned of it will lose their posting priviledges.
