Ok so ppl here are getting 250-300+ kb/s and i can barely scrape the underside of 70<br />
I switched to utorrent at the request of several (from bitcomet and azureus), got a new batch of high seed torrents, and started downloading in utorrent in a port i know is forwarded.<br />
Then i applied that TCP/IP patch ppl talk about (i was told to apply it to change it from 10 to 50 connections or something anyways i did it).<br />
My download speed is still stuck at under 70 Kb/s (mostly around 30)... what's that about? Why can't i run at 250-300+?<br />
i'm on a 5Mbit Connection, and a D-Link Router... three intermitent wireless conections on it as well as my hardlined PC...<br />
<br />
Anyone got ideas?

are you just DL one at a time or multiple ones?? (more than one will slow each one down) also your upspeed affects the down speed on torrents try adjusting your upspeed, some torrent sites have Protocol encryption enabled, it's in the options/preferences/bittorrent, works on some torrents but not others depends on if other users have theirs enabled, and Double check that the port your using is open go to options then speed guide click on test if port is forwarded properly.<br />
<br />
best to use a port in the 40000 - 60000 range

upload is set to unlimited, i have about 20 torrents in there, but i've set it to dl only 3 at a time... and the speed i listed was a total speed... not per torrent. (unfortunately)<br />
Protocol Encryption is currently set to: Forced<br />
Any other suggestions?

best to use a port in the 40000 - 60000 range could try turning protocol encryption off sometime works for mine<br><br>
all I can think of for now, other than try just one at a time, and set the upspeed to 40

no no no, don't have your upload set to unlimited, Limit it to like 50 and about 10 users. You might not share as much but you will definetly be able to download quicker. Then just leave the torrent after it is done to do your deed in seeding.<br />
<br />
Also make sure your software firewall isn't blocking the connection if you have one. <br />
<br />
Also if you have another computer, playing a game or downloading it will seriously make your torrent download speeds fall. <br />
<br />
try limiting the number of upload connections and the upload speed. And report back

Actually, set it to like 35, then limit to about 4 users. This allows more of your internet bandwith to be incomming (for d/ling) and less going out. You will recieve much higher download speeds then <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
