For me its wide open:

Frostwire, for software and PC apps..

WinMx, for mp3's.

And torrent's vary upon connection\latency\ping times and popular files.

Today I upgraded to the latest version Frostwire (4.10.9) and updated the host file for WinMX. All is just dandy and I'm looking to incorporate another torrent client.

I could never get piolet to work with a router either, I'll have to try it without one.

Anyone using WinMX (I believe MinLo does) notice the update patch in a different language? I'll post a pic and if anyone can identify what lang. it is, please do so.  :)

I havn't used WinMX since the patch actually.......Beforehand I didn't use it too much either unless I absolutely had to.......

I might be able to help you with the language part though....... 8)

Quantum,

I also live in a house with roomates, only 3 of use right now (more to come) and we all use torrents.  One of the guys insists on keeping a high upload and I can't play any fps games because of the constant lag and spiking pings.  I spent a week or so learning and trying different things to improve the connection status and this is what I found:

QoS (Quality of Service) tab in my router settings solves all my lag problems!

I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router.  I upgraded the firmware to dd-wrt (an open source firmware with many features including QoS).  Under this QoS tab, there is a setting to manually set a max cap for upload and download.  I set these to 85% of my true connection speed - this supposedly keeps your ping low even when you max your connection but I do more than just this.  There is a services priority category where you can set proirities for different protocols.  I set my chat and games programs like aim, http, ventrilo, half-life to the premium setting and p2p services like emule and bittorrent to the bulk setting.  After doing this, when I go to open up a new webpage and the connection is maxed out, that http service gets priority and I don't have to wait for any lag and the webpage opens up right away!  Lastly, I don't tell my router unsavy roomates about this but I set the mac address to my computer to recieve priority over their computers.  Low and behold all these settings give me ultra low pings for everything even when my roomate is uploading on unlimited!  My computer doesn't show any form of lag whatsoever when my connection is maxed out.  Having no lag satisfies me and being able to upload at unlimited satisfies my roomate.  A win win situation.  I think all routers should have this setting.

Hope this helps anybody who has to deal with sharing a connection like I do. 8)

P.S. You can still kill the router's speed if you let your P2P programs open up too many connections - as Quantum stated (the router can only handle so many).  Keep that in mind.

I stoped using limewire a long time ago because of fake and misnamed files. I only use bit torrent now.

For bittorrent, I use µTorrent.

For P2P(only single mp3's), I use KCEasy(Connects to Ares, Gnutella, & OpenFT).

For newsgroups, I use Grabit.
