File-sharing services very slow for anyone else?

File-sharing services very slow for anyone else?

I used to use WinMX to grab music files... could snag 'em at a healthy clip of like 40kps each when connected to the LAN of my law school.

Now service has slowed to a crawl. I can't download files from anyone any faster than like 1.5kps. And that's blazingly fast; more commonly I'm seeing download rates well below 1.0.

As I write this, I have four xfers going, allegedly from DSL/T1 people. Yet my transfer rates are 1.95, 1.80, 0.69, and 0.59 kps.

Has anyone else observed a similar drop in speed? Is it my notebook? (doubtful; its configuration hasn't changed in the past 2-3 months.) Or is it my connection, or is it WinMX in general?

Note that I get the same slow-ass connection speeds with Morpheus, too - slower, in fact. Note further that I can download files from other sites at 50-60kps.
