    I used Napster, old version of morpheus.. they are great.. fast download speed. ( I know Napster is not peer 2 peer ). But now.. I tried Kazaa, XoloX, morpheus ... and some other p2p softwares.. and if I am lucky enough to find a file I am after... it will only download at < 1kb per second... I have a LAN... is that the reason that it's downloading at this speed?? it doesn't seem like working well with LAN... any solutions?? or it is slow for everyone?? I don't have firewall on and I have cable connection.

    well I think that problem is related to the type of protocol they use. I would suggest winmx if u really into p2p stuff. as I've heard its about the best

    I use Kazaa lite with the Speed up tool. Works great for me. :D

    Yeah, WinMX is the best p2p, especially for music. I've tried pretty much everything and I came back to WinMX.

    I have essentially the same config as you, and have never had any problems like you're describing, though I never did get very good speeds on kazaa or xolox.

    My suggestion: Give WinMX a try and see if there's a problem there too.
