what dose min elapsed do / mean in the auto drop settings

Asked by aaron on 2009-03-25

In preferences > Downloads > Queue > Auto Drop settings

What do those settings mean / do. Specifically min elapsed. Is that the minimum elapsed time a connect is active, before it kept or droped. What should this setting be, I can't remember what the default was, I was experimenting with these setting because the wireless network I am part of dose not have the same speed as a cabled network.

The settings mean when it will drop the connection after no packets are received. (I.E. Packet Loss) or inactivity entirely.

Wireless usually never has the same speed as direct Ethernet connection because so many factors come into play.

Actually, that's not an accurate description of this setting. This is from the DC++ help file:

Amount of time (in seconds) that has to pass since the download started before a source can be dropped. (default: 15 s)
