Firefox loads only 50% of pages when DC++ running

Firefox loads only 50% of pages when DC++ running

I am having a strange problem with the latest versions of DC++, and Firefox. Only up to recently, Firefox has increasingly been failing to load webpages. Basically, when Dc++ is connected, Firefox fails to load pages 50% of the time. Sometimes, the disconnection problems last a few seconds, sometimes minutes but eventually Firefox lets me see the page. When I close DC++, FIrefox acts normally.

Note: I've been using Dc++ for 3 days now, and only on the 3rd day did Firefox begin to appear affected. I am running Xpsp2, and have all the latest updates and run a spy-free computer.

Thx

dc++ is probably using all available bandwidth, so your firefox can't load pages

get something that limits bandwidth like netlimiter so that you set some bw aside for browsing

Doesn't the DC++ client have a Bandwidth throttle?

not the official client. some alternate versions do, but they are often banned by hubs. they can't ban netlimiter

see about getting more upspead/downspeed. This can help with the bandwidth and see about proper configuration of you client. Another alternative is to get another isp that has heavier pipes or have your isp upgrade the pipes. I have had this done on 2 of my isp's so far. They will see the need for it and upgrade usually with only throttles in between the upgrade while they are upping your speed and adding more bandwidth. Bigger providers already have the said bandwidth usually available so it may not be a problem with them though.

What versions of the DC++ client and Firefox do you suppose he was using in September 2007? :roll:
