I use WinMX often, and I find no problem with the length of connection or searching.

Perhaps your connection settings are wrong? I found that when I moved to ADSL, and put it onto a Primary Connection, it would slow down significantly. So I left it on Secondary Connection and it went much faster. Perhaps that could help?

Other then that, I'm not sure, sorry....

When you first ran WinMX, and it searched for a connection, and tested packets, etc. Did it find any errors?

With mine, I kept having problems, so I put it so it was set to:

- Unable to send or recieve UDP Packets
- Unable to accept incoming TCP connections

Since then it worked fine... Just another little thing I found... Sorry if it's another blooper. :tazz:

I put everything in Unable mode, nothing!
When it was testing for a connection it coudn't find one, So I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it then it didn't seem to have any problems! I am thinking its my computer stopping it from finding a connection but I don't know what could cause that! Thanx for your help again!

lol, last suggestion from me... Have you got the latest version? Sometimes it won't connect if you don't have the latest version... :tazz:

If that doesn't work, then I'm lost... Sorry mate...

I know much more about bittorrent than winMX but I guess they may share some of the same problems...
Are you connecting through a router or firewall? You may need to open some ports. Portforward is an incredibly useful site on this topic with detailed walkthroughs for a huge number of routers and firewalls.
