Is getting disconnected once a day normal?

Postby HEAT84 » Mon Jul 26, 2004 7:16 pm

The longest WinMX has been on-line for me before disconnecting and reconnecting is just over 80 hrs. But that was once in a blue moon. Almost always it happens about once a day . I was just wondering if thats normal. Actually, I'm not sure if its just WinMX or my DSL dropping intermittantly.

ok,,, so connect to something which will log your connection like irc, or trillian or something. if that also d/cs the same time then u know it's your isp chiefing you out. phone and complain. u should have always on connection virtually. i'm with aol and i get d/cd maybe once in 6/7 days if i'm unlucky.

Are you talking about being connected to Primaries? If yes, then its quite possible that you have to switch. Folk need to restart their computer, or whatever. :)

So you mean when I get disconnected its 'cause the primary I was connected to went offline? Thats kinda what I figured.

Yep. A good way of checking is to see how long WinMX reckons you have been online. If its less than it was, you have changed Primary.
