Coaster Posted June 28, 2006 Report Share Posted June 28, 2006 I am having serious problems, I can start uTorrent and only get speeds very very Low, like - 3ish, stop uTorrent, restart maybe 5ish, restart maybe only .2 etc. What is odd is once in a while when I start uTorrent WOW speeds are great, ubuntu might DL at 150 to 300+ then within 2 to 10 mins it just drops off very quickly down to the horrible 3ish lvl etc. This happens right outta the blue with no changes to configuation having taken place. Seeds and peers remain in excellent numbers. And I don't mean once in a while over a period of days, I mean it happens 1 out of around 20 times of starting and stopping uTorrent. No use running it at 3ish speed. Can't even surf the web when its like that. So I close it. Then restart to see if by some miricle it started working right LOL. For the short period it might have GOOD speed though I can surf all I want.Anyone have any idea why once in a while I can connect and get very good speed only to have it drop off and not stay good like that?I have green light port open and forwarded correctly all the time.P4 3.0 ghz1024 ramwindows xp pro sp2Asante routerwi-fi internet connectionUsing uTorrent 1.5 stable but have tried utorrent-1.5.1-beta-build-465 and utorrent-1.5.1-beta-build-466 with same exact results.Did have avast anti virus but at current moment is unintalled to test if that was problem - no changealso had Kerio personal firewall - unintalled to test - no changeTurned off the windows firewall - no changeRead the FAQtried every speed in speed guide (Ctrl G) used to choose upload speed read the stickies in the Speed Problems subforumLately have made no changes and is still doing as described above. Since i do get good speeds once in a while i thought to just leave it alone till I can get some help figuring out WHY..... since it must be configured somewhat properly if I can get speeds upwards of 300 even if only briefly.I have no idea what to try anymore.....is it possible that ISP can throttle just one individual? But that wouldnt explain why I can briefly get good DL's at times. So see, just out of ideas.....forgot to mention it affects upload speeds the same way.
