Look around your tracker, see if they have a preferred port, you can also tell some torrent clients what port to listen on (I'm a diehard azureus user)

And btw, i tire of saying this... but torrents are not illegal. Neither is P2P.
I'm seeding Linux distributions 24/7... 17GB of them, I assure you that people use it for good as well as evil
Eh, I've always my DMZ enabled on my router. My router used to get me kicked from lots of games until I enabled DMZ and then everything was perfect. I mean let's look at this logically, if you didn't have a router, would it matter. Do it or not but that's more than likely your problem. Find the port that your client is using and set it up for port forwarding in your router and see if that helps as well. Make sure to enable it on both TDP and UDP though.

Well thanks bud I download all my linux distro's from torrents. I use Azureus on my old Athlon XP machine.

OP hasn't replied... the ISP might just be the issue.

Enable DMZ for your IP address on your network inside your router. If you have a linksys router, it's called DMZ. If you have another brand of router, I dunno but it should be similar.
This isn't good general advice for people. You always want to avoid using DMZ if you can.

My guess is it's your router IP table or your ISP throttling torrents.

Thread Starter 
I already have my torrent client port forwarded so I don't think dmz is necessary. I have set the upload 80% of my total bandwidth so that's cover too. What else could make it drop? I do have a router built into my dsl modem. It is called 2wire. I don't have this problem before, but for some reason it does it now.

Are you using the standard torrent ports or have you setup a port for incoming/outgoing that is unique? The first thing you need to do is define a unique port in the torrent app as well port forward that port, both UDP and TCP, to a static IP on the machine -or- using uPNP to define the forward/triggers in your router dynamically.

You also need to port forward the default bittorrent ranges for general torrent flow.. As I have my linksys setup now, using uTorrent and Azureus running a custom flash on my linksys router, DD-WRT:

Make sure your program is synced with the port you forwarded in your router.

Enable transport encryption.

Also what ISP do you have? Some throttle connections (Comcast for example, throttles seeding).

as said before, enabling the DMZ lets people who want to 'rape' your pc become rapists, it would be like anal rape aswell

Agreed.. Do not use DMZ unless you absolutely have to. It just puts your router into a straight switch mode and you use NOTHING the router has except straight NAT (network address translation) so you can have your own local LAN.

With use of Port Forwarding, Triggering, uPnP and other tools in today's routers you should have NO issue, less using a static IP address I have done, leaving DMZ off. Leave it off and solve the problem, not open it wide which can cause greater issues with others sniffing around.

2 major issues with torrents are the port your using, if default, are throttled, filtered or blocked and the ISP your using determines the traffic generated from you is torrent and blocks it outright.

Again, the best you could do is:

Setup a static IP on your torrent machine within the local LAN and disable that range from your routers DHCP range, if you use DHCP.

In example. I have my internal IANA IP address on my secondary half of the router as 192.168.1.100. I have 3 other connections to the LAN all using DHCP but this one is easier for the applications I use to have a static. I adjust the DHCP range on the router to issue addresses starting @ 192.168.1.101 (excluding my now set static IP)

By doing this it's *much* easier to port forward, trigger, etc. You setup router rules to do the forwarding to the known IP, as in my shots above, which helps tremendously.

The 2nd is to setup a non standard torrent port. I use 50440 I believe but have used others. Stay into the higher ranges as lower ranges in the entire 1-65550 port range are reserved for other lower level protocols. anything > 10,000 should be absolutely fine however you can lookup on google the port your thinking and see if it's used by any software/protocol.

Also port forward the default torrent ranges so the torrent protocol can properly synch. This is where and how they can tell your doing torrents. These ranges are the biggest crux of torrenting. You must have these to properly open up the full bandwidth and Peer to Peer methodology. These ranges, again are showed in my pics above.

You may also use 3rd party software such as PeerGuardian or ProtoWall (which I use) which are blacklist packet blockers. I use ProtoWall with lists generated from BlueTac Security (B.I.S.S http://www.bluetack.co.uk) using their BLM or Block List Manger.

I block nearly 75% of all Internet ranges including EDU, Level 1-2 Corporate, AntiP2P lists and others and have NO issue getting full bandwidth and connections initiated both locally and remotely (the key to full torrent bandwidth and health)

Anything else, let me know or PM.. Cheers!
