kazaa lite lag

This one has been troubling me for awhile, why is it that peer2peer programs such as kazaa lite cause so much lag when playing online games. Even when I'm not downloading or uploading anything my ping climbs into the high 400s. I cant seem to figure out how to stop it.
I suspect it is because I'am constantly searched for files.

Could the "top" command be used to find the culprit(s)? Then a Kill command?

In Win, a three fingered salute will show you the running processes and make it easy to stop the offending prog(s).

As long as you're not sharing any files, or have that "super-node" thingy activated then all should be fine.

Id doubt very much its doing anything bandwidth intensive, well it shouldn't be.... seeing as the whole point of Kazaa lite is to take all the crap out!

It's causing lag, because it's chewing up your bandwidth. P2P programs work by building a "web" of interconnects. Your computer is part of that web, and hence receives, forwards and replies to messages.

In addition, if you are downloading or uploading, you are using bandwidth from your line. If you are downloading/uploading enough files, then you have used all the bandwidth allocated to you by your ISP. Hence the lag as packets are queued for delivery.

Little bit of hunting around on the net:
- In the “Traffic” tab, set your maximum number of uploads to 0 (ZERO) – this will prevent other people from taking your files. This should NEVER be left on “Unlimited” (Kazaa sets this to unlimited by default) It is also suggested that you check the box that says “Disable sharing of files with other Kazaa users” for this same reason. It is suggested that you set your maximum number of downloads to 1 (ONE).
- In the “Advanced” tab, CHECK the box that says, “Do not function as a super node.” This prevents your system from processing other people’s searches. UNCHECK the box that says “Optimal bandwidth when computer is idle.” Note: “Optimal” means, “take all of my bandwidth, please.”
- In the “Firewall” tab, UNCHECK the box that says, “Use port 80 as alternative for incoming connections.” Leaving this checked will bring your web surfing to a standstill.

Hope that helps......

EDIT: Although I think Kazaa Lite does all this for you, check it anyway.....
