I would like to improve my torrent download speed if it will be possible?
I enabled port forwarding sucsessfully and my "yellow" connection became "green" in my bittornado interface box.
Downloading speeds improved from a maximum of 17kb/s at best to 37/38 kb/s!

I have a 192kb/s adsl connection though. How can i get speeds of up to 100kb/s + like so many other's do.
Is there a program i need to get to improve performance? Is my Isp throttling ALL ports limiting it to 40 kb/s any ideas what i can do to improve it?

I am connected to the conexant modem wirelesly using a port in the high 7000's for my torrent client, and the modem in turn is connected physically to another pc.
The two pc's aren't setup as a "network" I only access the modem wirellesly and can do all of it's configuration from this wireless pc.

What else do i need to do to get a faster download rate? It seems downloading from website's also limits me to 40 kb/s (using firefox or iexplorer) Did they rip me off on the connection speed they advertised? They are our national telephone service provider and i do not think they would risk doing something like that.

Any help will be appreciated thanks!

i guess we're not downloaders and have no idea how to increase your downloading software's downloading speeds. but in general the 30's (kbps) is what all my friends get. yes i know you have a much faster adsl connection but your p2p "sharing" program's speeds are dependant on how popular the file is (unpopular = no one has it = poor speed, too popular everyone wants it = mod speed), and many many other factors like the uploading speeds of your file/torrent suppliers. but the 30's sounds normal to my "expert" friend. or try a more dedicated downloading forum on the internet they might be able to help you tweak your connection.

According to some experts 30-40 looks to be the norm for my connection. Thanks
