How to Improve Speed on Soulseek

Soulseek is a popular peer-to-peer file-sharing program. If it seems to be running slower than you would expect on your Internet set-up, there is a way to improve the speed of your connection. Because it is a peer-to-peer set-up, however, no solution is perfect. If the person from whom you are downloading has a slow upload speed, there is nothing you can do on your end.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Soulseek.

  2. 2

    Click the "Transfers" tab at the top of the Soulseek window.

  3. 3

    Set you "Maximum Download Speed" to "0." Somewhat counter-intuitively, "0" makes it unlimited

  4. 4

    Click "Apply" and then "OK."
