Send a message via MSN to skylinegtr
Default msn messenger

k heres my question
i have msn 7 beta, and so do my freinds, i try sending a fairly big file around 200-500mb and it lags the hell out of msn but they can send the same file or bigger and it doesnt lag there computer at all. my computer is faster than all of theres im not sure why this happens it is very annoying because it lags for like 30 minutes depending on the size, even on smaller files it still does it but not as bad.. thanks for all reponses

ok, don't send such large files through msn, if you know your friends put it on CD.

first of all what Internet connection do you have?
and how fast is it?

It probably is that - you should close Norton before you send anything that big over MSN.

Personally I'd have to say the best idea would be to put the file onto a Server, and have them download it from there. That way is considerably faster - even including the time you'd be putting it on the Server.
