Hi all

When I got my internet installed yesterday,,, the next day I used utorrent to download series and it was really fast 200kbs/sec. And at that time my plan was 4mbs.

but now all the suddent I cannot even get 10kbs/sec and it shows a red indicator at the bottom. Does anyone know how to boost this thing up? I am on 10mbs plan.

Thank you

it all depends on how many people are seeding and how fast their connections are..

In the settings make sure your upload speed is set to 2,048kbt/s or MAX as I think they limit your download speed relative to your upload speed.

Hi there

Sometimes the connection is fine (Green light) and sometimes it appears to have no connection (Red light)... I have tried to forward the port according to the portforward website but no luck....

if you dont have the port forwarded it will go much slower. this site will tell you if the ports open correctly:

I'm on the 4Mbps plan, I regularly get up to about 400kBps on a well seeded torrent. I didn't do anything fancy, maybe I forwarded some ports to my PCs static IP is all.

Hi Timmmay

Do you allow a lot of upload coming in?

I allow at least 50KB/sec to go out. Much beyond 100KBps you don't get much back, but sometimes I run it unlimited to keep my upload/download ratio ok and I get 400KBps down and 200KBps up.

Yep it can use a lot of data real quick. No special setup just follow the general setup instructions for bit torrent, including port forwarding if necessary.

Hi when I use torrents (utorrent) I limit my upload speed to 1kb/s untill it finished DL then upload 20%-30% at around 10-20kbs other wise it slows down others who are on the net. I would never upload at the speeds you do.
Also what site are you getting your torrents from, if you can get a membership to a private site it would also help speeds, i use I use torrent-damage.net, but it took ages to get an account and a free site xtvi.com. 

Hope this helps some way

Cheers

The whole idea around bit torrent is you should upload at least the same amount of data you download. If no-one shared then bittorrent wouldn't work, if people don't upload others will stop and the whole system falls over. Give back what you download, it's only fair.

Also the faster I set my upload, the faster my download goes, generally.

Good on ya for uploading 100%.
The private sites don't ask you upload that much, once you have downloaded over 25gig your ratio must be over .50. 50% max. 
Also thats just my settings for faster downloads, your upload speed must be a lot faster than mine.

Cheers

Ah ok private sites must be different, but still the more people upload the faster it is for everyone. I have 2mbps up, which is about 200kBps.
