Problem with DC++

Postby fatfran » Thu Apr 30, 2009 11:52 am

I have a pretty major problem with my DC++, wondered if anyone could help?

Whenever log onto the on campus hub, it seems fine, but then it stops to work almost immediately and my internet connection stops working completely, and the only way to get it back is to restart the computer. My internet works perfectly before I load up DC++, and its getting annoying.

Thanks

Have you tried 'repairing' the network connection after it happens, as well as making sure DC++ is properly closed down again (kill the process in task manager if necessary)?

Are you on or off campus? How are you connecting to DC++ (LAN, wireless, 3G modem)?

It sounds like your connection is potentially getting flooded which could either be from having mal-configured DC++ or due to you having too many items downloading which spawns too many connections.

It is probably best if you give us more information so that someone on here has a better chance of diagnosing what your problem might be.

I am on campus and connecting through the warwick network (ethernet socket)

i never had problems the last two terms, but all this term i've had the problem where i can connect fine, but as soon as i start to download anything, the download slows down to 0 and my internet stops working completely.

Yes you said that first time :P
Might be worth reinstalling DC++ completely maybe? Can you test to see if you can still transfer files at network speeds not on DC++ (friend on campus on MSN "might" work, bit hit and miss that sometimes) maybe over the windows networking stuff with a friend if you have that enabled?

I've tried reinstalling completely, and after adding all my files to share, I got to about one film downloaded before it died

Have you tried any of the other things I suggested?

Actually he only mentioned that he logged onto the campus hub, but not that he himself was on campus. There is a clear distinction!

fatfran:

My next question would be whether you have in the past installed any non-standard DC++ clients or perhaps another odd P2P filesharing program? It could well sound like a adware/spyware program is trying to flood your connection. Odd that it should only be when using DC++, but it isn't unheard of for spyware/adware to attach themselves to the connection of a single application rather than use the network connection directly.
