Welcome everybody to the new FrostWire forums.
Expect a bit of breakage the following days as we adjust to this new platform.
We thank you for your patience.
Only getting 'several' results when I search popular or any songs???
Hi, I'm new to this forum as of today.
Yesterday I downloaded frostwire for the first time after years of not having it.
Straight away I had a list of about 100 songs to download. I did so very quickly as the Internet is very fast these days.
That was all good and well, no problems what so ever. every time I searched a song I got hundreds of hits, even for old songs.
Woke up this morning to continue downloading my list and I typed in the title and artist (over and over) and each time I would only get 2, 3 OR about up to 10 results !!! what!!!
I then typed in Britney Spears, PINK, Michael Jackson and other big names as I knew I would get hits off that. NOTHING but several songs , mostly covers and or dodgy looking files!!
I then went on to google to find out why and it seems no one has this problem???, well that I could find. but there was one other person who had a similar issue and he said his ISP internet service provider had blocked P2P sharing!?!?!
I am from Australia and I use DODO ISP... is this what has likely happened?
I since have installed and deleted and reinstalled frostwire a million times today and even just bought a VPN tonight and that is running, but still no fix on the lack of song results!!
I also changed port numbers but that didn't help.
any ideas what I can do?
