Less Posted July 5, 2006 Report Share Posted July 5, 2006 Well, I'm think I'm having speed problems (obviously, that's why I'm here). I'm relatively new to torrents and things of that sort; so I'm seeking advice of those who know more than I do.As for my equipment: Linksys WRT54G V5 with latest firmware v1.00.9 (sadly, the 3rd party firmware won't work with this model), Verizon DSL, and I'm using a wireless connection while I download (laptop).To sum up my problem quickly, I'm dowloading at no more than 30kb/s. I've run the speed tests numerous times (which resulted in my getting 80% worse service than others), tried opening ports (it doesn't recognize it...although I do have UPnP turned on), tried static IP, and still have no luck. I'm getting terrible speeds on highly active torrents (ex: I only got 10kb/s while connected to 8 seeds and X peers).Basically I need to know if I do actually have speed problems (my speed guide is set at xx/128k, are my speeds correct for this setting?), and if I do, what I can do to correct them (open ports, etc.).Thanks in advance.
