    i am guessing its the same old - how longs a piece of string answer ricky

    depends on source
    depends on size
    depends on your connection speed

    prob a few more

    i can get speeds of 1.17m/sec so not that long really

    Allot of factors depend on this.

    How fast the persons download ISP connection is.

    What torrent client you actually use.

    If you have the torrent application installed and setup correctly.

    If your using the correct ports.

    If you have your firewall and the correct ports forwarded correctly on your router if you are using 1.

    The size of the torrent itself.

    How many torrents you have active downloading.

    Even when you have everything setup properly it will still determine on the amount of seeders and leechers there are on the torrent itself.

    I have everything set up correctly for me and I get speeds between 1kbps to 500kbps It all depends on the swarm speed of the torrent.

    For more information on what ports to use and how to forward a port look at the below link.

    http://portforward.com/

    Plus look on the forum of the torrent site itself. They usually have guides on how to correctly setup a torrent client for you to get the most out of your Internet speed.

    i just wanted to add that after being exposed ot newsgroups the last two weeks i'll avoid torrents as much as possible. Torrents I'm typically looking at ATLEAST a day no matter the site. Newsgroups your looking at around 2 hours or less guaranteed almost every time. As Tony the Tiger would say..............

    They're Ggggggggggggreat!!!!!!!

    Gotta agree with the above. I used to be a fool with my torrents and slow unreliable speeds. Ever since I started using newsgroups I haven't looked back, consistently high speeds, very rarely do you see a botched/fake post on usenet, whereas they are plentiful on torrents. And you can find anything you can imagine, if it's on vcdquality, nforce, theisonews etc. Guaranteed you will find it on newsgroups.

    Takes me about 2-3 hours for a full size 4.5GB DVD from the groups to my Wii that is.

    that's what I asking too, can someone give me some instruction on where I can find the news group and how I can download from there.
    I really don't have idea about that, as I'm new to here (this forum)

    most of your ISP news group don't have a good retention time, you would have to go to a paid one that have up to 60 days of retetion time for you to grab. I paid like $15/month but it's worth it when you can get games, movies, and apps...

    you will find that most isps do not even carry binary newsgroups although ntl do carry some but not ones with wii in them

    you need to pay for a newserver - i use newshosting.com

    there are free servers out there, but they suck. www.yottanews.com is the best and even that is garbage. You should just shell out the 15$/mth or get a one time pay account, it pays for itself in no time flat.

    you're asking the wrong questions. it's not the newsgroups that get you the downloads. in my case its the channels you use on IRC to search for the nzb files. The whole process is somewhat complicated if you have never done it. I suggest downloading mIRC and going to a Wii channel. Find some1 knowledgable and that is willing to help you with what you don't understand. Unfortunately, for those that don't know what sites to go to it sucks. Just search for them on google. I'm pretty sure that everybody that uses newsgroups more than likely uses the same channel.

    if you don't like IRC, use newzbin dot com or nzbmatrix dot net which will provide you with nice nzb with very little donation, well worth the cost.

    why would you go to irc for newsgroups? just use newzbin.com or if you are too cheap find a free nzb site they are a dime a dozen these days.
