I have ADSL and have tried Azureus a lot, but it seems to hog up resources and saturate the bandwidth so I don’t use it too much. I have been using Shareaza which in its default config is better, and doesn’t slow down other machines on the home network that much.
But someone told me about this BitSpirit client. At first it seemed to totally saturate my DSL setup so that no other machine could effectively browse the net while that one machine was download.
BUT, there is a setting under PREFERENCE, NETWORK OPTIONS that I was told about and it totally helped. If you have ADSL, just go into that tab and make sure ANTI-FREEZE is checked. That seemed to clear up everything.
Anyway, I’m new to this BitSpirit client, but wanted to kinda share and ask if others have heard of it.
I was getting like 100+ kbps downloads on my 1.5/384k setup, as high as 135 even. Much zippier than Azureus in terms of progam load and exit times, and it starts up on downloads lickety split.
Worth a look, I guess.
Latest version seems to be 3.1.0.077
