    Hi all

    I'm using LimeWire Pro v4.14.3, and for some reason whenever I try to download a file using LimeWire, it displays "connecting..." and then it keeps searching for more hosts, even though I'm downloading files that have 100+ hosts.

    It doesn't make sense.. on the few occasions it has worked it worked flawlessly with very good download rates; but most of the time whatever I try to download it just keeps searching for hosts?

    Anyone know what's wrong?

    A lot of people have been having problems with Limewire for several months now. Limewire has been in and out of court lately. Plus, many of the high Speed Internet companies have narrowed their P2P bandwidth to slow the flow of P2P traffic on their servers. Many people who do not use P2P are complaining of slow service.

    Try is new program, it still works pretty good. Make sure you read the instructions. http://www.frostwire.com/

    The cable/ phone companies are narrowing down the main P2P providers, they seem to know who the big players are, try a smaller P2P , and yes they restricting bandwith.

    Tried Frostwire, It worked initially but now I'm getting the same errors.

    Any other still functioning, decent P2P networks out there?
