    Just installed Ares and it works fine for about 10 minutes then computer disconnects from high-speed wireless. Have to wait another 10 minutes until able to connect again. Any ideas? Thanks.

    If this disconnect doesn't occur at other times, try reinstalling the P2P software.

    Isn't THIS the Ares you were talking about?

    That's the one. I've since been told by my i.s.p. that their firewall system times out anyone using this type of file-sharing software due to the massive searching and inquiry traffic from those trying to access your computer. I've got it down to now having to only use it for about seven minutes at a time before being locked out of my isp for a 20 minute period.
