Internet Connection Problem - utorrent

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have some files in seed with few or zero seed and peers and only one file to download as many with few seeds and peers and despite the download is quite slow as well as the upload (dw 200/ up 15) it does not take very much of my band (ADSL 8mb). All normal. But the real problem is when utorrent is active the internet connection is very slow, sometimes blocked. Everything is resolved by closing u torrent and restarting the router ....solutions? (maybe it's changes to the settings on the client?)

A lot of what your d/l rate runs at depends on the people you peer from and I have a 10m connection and I max out at 1m on downloads if I get the right connections...As for your internet problem check the global settings to see how many connections you are running at...I am not 100% but on mine I think it runs at 50 connections per torrent and 100 total I can't remember as its at home and I am at work.

Your modem/router may be running out of sessions and if these are not set properly you will not be able to do anything else as uTorrent will be taking all your connections in a sense. Most ISP's as far as I know (I work for one as a support agent on a T1 level) do not support this. If you know your way around your modem as well you could set up your computer that does the downloading in a DMZ mode or bridged mode but thats entirely on what your ISP lets you do for management of the modem settings.


Edit: I'm home and just checked my settings and they are set to: Global maximum number of connections - 150
Maximum number of connected peers per torrent - 150. If a file is moving slow I usually move it further down the list and let other files try to see if they go any faster. And yes Ulquiorra is correct although you will find some seeders move a hell of a lot faster than others so if you can find a file that has quite a few seeders chances are that you should be able to find some that give alot.

No solutions, its how it works, to get faster torrents you need more seeders

Utorrent is give n take, uploading on home connections will literally kill your connection, turn that down, downside of this is turn it too low and your download speed decreasese,

Con trackings rarely a problem now days most routers have enough ram to extend past the 16k mark ^_^

You got too many connections overloading you router. Lower it to a reasonable amount.

What router are you using? A better router with a better processor and ram will help with more connections.

Lower your global connections, start with 50ish and work your way up until router crashes and forces you to reboot. I remember my WRT54G can only do like 100ish.

Yes you need to limit the number of connections. As someone said above try limiting it to 100. Also your upload bandwidth is very limited. Try limiting your total upload speed to 25KB/s
