config file wiped, now slow downloads

Post by Dr_Pips »

Hi All,

I've been running SAB for years and very few problems. I've been doing some maintenance on my PC and when I restarted, I was getting an error message saying that the config file was not valid (or something like that). I went through the tutorial again, and got everything set up pretty much as I remember, but I must be missing something as the speeds have gone from 3.5MB/s to 500 KB/s. I'm guessing there's a simple setting that I haven't sorted, but can't for the life of me remember what it was.

One possibility is the server. I use Astraweb, and I've set up the Should I set up the eu one and us one as well? I'm in the UK. Also, not sure what I should have connections and ports set to.

Thanks for your help,

You added astraweb using the wizard? Then these should already be the right settings for port and connections.
On 1 connection I can get 4MB/s, so the number doesn't really matter.
You could try to enable SSL since I have understood that some UK providers slow down usenet traffic.
