Okay so with this new MU shitstorm i have had to go to torrents, the reason i am writing this is because of how poor they download on my internet 500KB/s for one torrent, as with DDL 4MB/s see the difference in waiting time. I am using utorrent 3.1 i have run the setup guide and such.

So i need help with getting it to download in the MB not KB, if you say i should switch to a diffrent torrent app then i will. I shall be waiting for your help peeps.

well first make sure you are not limiting your bandwidth either locally per torrent or globally. second you might wanna turn on forced encryption as your ISP might be discriminating against you and restricting your speed because of it. lastly you MUST keep in the back of your mind that you are now limited to the speed in which others upload and you will only get it as fast as other share it. so dont expect to see 4MB/s on any single torrent unless there are THOUSANDS of peers. OH that is another thing you might wanna check. the peer connections per torrent and global peer connections.

I'm using utorrent too. Never had any problems with it.
UT does almost everything automatically (that's why I love it).

Your dl speed depends on some factors:

How many files are you currently leeching?
How many seeders do you have?
Do you see a green dot in the lower right corner of your client (Network OK)?
Have you limited your up- or downstream?
What are your "Queue Settings"? (options --> preferences --> queueing)
What are your "Basic BitTorrent Features" (options --> preferences --> bittorrent)
What are your "Number of Connections" settings? (options --> preferences --> bandwith)

If you can tell me these informations (or show screen caps), I will happily look whether you can improve something.


Regards! :)

Getting 500KB/s on a torrent is not bad, right now I'm downloading a torrent with only 60KB/s downloading speed and currently I'm uploading more than downloading, so don't get the wrong idea.

Oddly enough, this topic helped me out. My problem was my slow upload through bittorrent apps, but thanks to the forced incryption i can upload at least 10 times faster. I like to give as much as i take after all. Thanks for the useful info Cman21

Angel's right. 500kbps isn't too bad.

You'll want to make sure your ports are open so you have full connectivity. Go to http://portforward.com/ and select your router from the router list, then select the app (utorrent) you wish to port forward. It's fairly straight forward. After you forward those ports in your router settings, you'll have to set utorrent to the same settings.

Torrents also need a decent peer to seeder ratio before they kick off nicely. Generally when a torrent is first released, there are a fair few people downloading it from the original uploader, therefore the bandwidth is shared. Once those initial downloads are done, a portion of them will seed, thus making it faster for most people downloading.

Here is an ideal setup to get the best speeds for a DSL connection (phone line) with uTorrent. I have no idea how well this will work with a cable modem or other ISP method. I can't guarantee this will work for everybody, but it shouldn't hurt to try.

If you have a stock install of uTorrent with default settings, do the following:

- Open Preferences (Press ctrl-p)
- In the preference tree (the list of the left) click "BitTorrent"
- Under "Procol Encrytion" select "Forced"
- Ensure "Allow incoming legacy connections" is turned off
- Turn off "Enable DHT Network"
- Turn off "Enable DHT for new torrents"
- In the preference tree (the list of the left) click "Connection"
- Under "Listening Port" set "Port used for incoming connections" to 1723
(Other ports may work as well such as 50, 500, 1701, 10000, but 1723 has always worked me for)
- Ensure that "Randomize port each start" is turned off.

This should be all that is required, but some people may find they need reconnect to their ISP by rebooting their modem. Also, if you have a static IP (if you don't know then you probably don't) you may need to wait a while for the effects to kick in.

If this doesn't help, please don't ask me for further advice as I have none to give. I have no idea what else you could try.

I'm always getting my max speed (4.8MB/sec) on decently seeded torrents (for example new releases and BakaBT). If you're getting any less than your max then:

1 - you aren't uploading. Torrents are made this way: every peer has x number of upload slots, let's say there are slots for 4 peers. Say 1 of those peers is uploading @ 10k/sec and other 3 @ 100k/sec. The peer finds a new peer, notices this peer is uploading more than 10k/sec. So then it removes the peer that was uploading at only 10k/sec and replaces it with the new peer.
So basically: if you don't upload you're last in line of getting any download speed.

2 - your ISP is limiting your speed on torrent traffic, only possible solutions for this are to force encryption and change your ports to 50000+ (or maybe random ports). You could even try setting your port to 80, if they have some messed up scheme that limits everything except HTTP traffic. I would just switch ISP's or complain about not obliging to net neutrality laws (if your country even has those..)

3 - your hard disk can't write away the data fast enough... although I doubt this is possible with a recent PC. What you can do is defrag your file system, set your torrent client to allocate all space before starting to download. And of course don't use any hard disk intensive applications.... *duh*

4 - you have your torrent client set to unlimited upload/download speed or unlimited connections, but as you may know... no connection is unlimited. Set your download/upload speed to 90% of what you're getting at a speed meter on the internet. And max connections to ~300 if you have 500k/sec upload speed, it's quite easy to test this until your speed drops.

5 - you are downloading a crappy seeded torrent. Just be patient and don't complain about slow speeds or find another torrent.

500 kb/s isn't that bad, btw.
I've been leeching some DVDs of Noir for six weeks @ 0.1 - 5 kb/s :stupidpc:
But it's 90% completed now, 'cause I never give up.
"Just" one more week to go :P

If it's a well seeded torrent, like from a private tracker or BakaBT, you should be getting your max bandwidth down. Like others have said, do make sure your upload is limited. Not by the supposed rate, but actual. Since choking that does affect your downrate since it needs to communicate with peers for those packets.

Here's a test to tell if your ISP is shaping your traffic.
http://broadband.mpi...ency/bttest.php
If so, turning on encryption will help bypass it. Allowing max down.

Also can compare speeds with a site that offers SSL torrents. They alone can bypass some ISP shaping, without encryption.

I was just downloading Victory Gundam off BakaBT, and I hit a max speed of over 4MB/s. It all depends on the seeds and peers and their upload speeds to you.

You need to get into a channel with an XDCC bot. Here are the primary commands:

/msg <botname> XDCC list - will usually link you to an online list or send you a text file with all of the available downloads. Note the package IDs of the files you want.

/msg <botname> XDCC send <package #> - begins the file-transfer process

Pretty straightforward. There are plenty of guides online. ;)
