Network traffic, time of day. There are TONS of reasons. Which version are you using? 2.0 now has a rating system. You must keep your rating or "participation" as they call it high otherwise your speeds decrease. Your participation levels begins to drop the minute you use kazaa and does not raise unless people can download from you (and complete the file successfully). As well, if you rate your files you earn a higher participation per download.
I've explained this to a lot of people on this board already.......
Kazaa is a Peer to Peer network. You are downloading files directly off other's PCs, so your speed will only be as fast as the other guy's upload. And every download comes from a different user. So if your downloading off a Dialup Modem user, you get 0.75, if your downloading off another Cable/DSL user, you'll get the 14.00. Get someone on a school or work T1 or T3 and watch it fly to 150.00. It all varies by the user you download from.
Didn't you see that i've said, " Just got DSL ". Why will i come up in here and read any posts on DSL if i don't have DSL?
Like i've said in the other post: I searched through the site and didn't find anything.
Thanks for your response. It was useful anyways !
Thanks bruce_ers00 !
Leo he was chilled. I think he simply trying to convery that just becasue you have DSL doesn't mean you going to have great download speeds. This seems to be a commom misperception, the only time it is not is if you are downloading from somthing ungodly fast and your are limited by your own equipment. When you download files from the internet, you are actually reaching into that computer and pulling infoirmation off, you are requesting that the information be sent to you, you in effect are nothing more than a receiving bin. Therefore, you are going to be limited by the speed in which the data is transmited to you. I hope this clears up any confusion
Then it's not a 1Mbit line. Period. Do the math yourself if you wish. If you can download at 1000kbytes (1Mbytes) the line has to be AT LEAST 8Mbit. But this is the teoretical limit. With all the ethernet and TCP/IP overhead it should be at least 10Mbit.
what do you people really expect when downloading from other people? of cource u gona get slow speed cuz they dont got money to have unlimited upload bandwith. also speed depends on how widely the file is spread and all other banch of stuff

Now guys, my isp claims that my internet speed is up to 786.(Im talking about here a regular dowload off the internet, NOT KAZAA)
My download speed is 356 and them i keeps on going down and down. Why is that ?
