Just get yourself SABnzbd, just Google. Download and install, in setup use news.mweb.co.za and Port 119. Now just get yourself a place to download NZB's, let's use NZBMatrix.com for now. Now just search what your looking for, download the nzb file and it will open in SABnzbd, kinda like using Utorrent. Now your set!
There are other NZB sites, Google is your friend!
Mweb gumy mweb is acting all screwy can barely watch youtube videos buffers every 20 secs. Could you please help me? Thanks
AnWowow so i decided to go a few pages back and to see mweb have been having some problems of recent... Ive phoned telkom numberous times during the following 2 weeks complaining to them and maybe the fault was with mweb all along? Hmm will use my afrihost account at work tomorrow to see if that changes things
Hmmmmm.... Well I read Mweb guy's feedback about attenuation and mine is on 63db.... Not a good sign AT ALL! Damn you telkom get more exchanges!!

Im thinking about upping my 1mb to 4mb, im just worried being in a small town i wont actually get the 4mb speed im looking for.
Anyone know if living in a small town affects speed a lot?
E8500 @ 3.16Ghz, P5Q SE,
4x 2gb Kingston Hyper ddr2-800, 250gb Seagate,
Force3D HD4850, CoolMaster 600w PSU, CoolerMaster CM 690 Case, Samsung S2333SW
Torrents flying at the moment!
I tried to get a trial account yesterday, but the consultant wanted me to sign up for a new account with a 5-day cooling off period. Why do I need to sign up for an account to get a trial to test?
If MWeb is concerned about abuse on the trial accounts, why not give them 500mb cap each.
The very existence of flamethrowers suggests that at one point someone said to them self, "You know, I'd really like to set those people over there on fire."
I see there has been a bit of discussion about torrent speeds in the last few days.
Torrent speeds are never guaranteed and will fluctuate through the day and can even differ from day to day depending on the network load. I know the speeds have been excellent for the last few months, but please remember that this is a shaped product and torrent traffic has the lowest priority so you simply can't expect that experience to remain constant.
The good news is that we did add a little bandwidth onto the fire yesterday so there will hopefully be some improvement and we are expecting a substantial upgrade on the 1st of June.
For the torrenters I would however recommend that you don't speed watch - it is a shaped product and you should rather look at what you're downloading over the course of the month to determine if you're getting value for money, rather than how fast it's going right this minute.
Recommend that the guys use nntp rather
Oh, I do have a valid question.... what's up with the DNS? Yesterday morning I had everything fail at DNS level, so I switched to Google DNS. It's obviously slower than local DNS, so I switched back later, only to have more DNS-level failures. For instance, Mweb mail wouldn't load, I had a non-working news.mweb.co.za IP.
It seems to be fine this morning though.
I have just migrated a whole lot of clients to M-Web ADSL but now they are getting email sending errors. The error is 451 4.3.0 try again.
I've tested this on an M-Web ADSL line and another ADSL supplier and only happens on the M-Web ADSL line.
What is worrying is that the email sending connection is suppose to be secure to the Google Apps mail server.
