red arrows slow speeds


Recommended Posts

I still can,t get the red arrows to turn blue.

I Still get the message (no connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it).

I have been reading the threads on this forum for weeks trying to sort it out, however no luck.

I have forwarded ports correctly and have the green light at the bottom.

I have tried disabling DHT and UPanP.

I have tried the tcp.patch.

Nothing seems to work the arrows instantly go red on everyone of the numerous torrents I try to download and I get very slow download speeds.

I am on 4 meg cable broadband in the UK and when run the speed check everything is fine.

I would be grateful if anyone could help me sort this out, thanks.

Did you use Speed Guide (CTRL+G) to set an appropriate upload speed and other settings?

Is your half-open connection limit unchanged?

Does your ISP use a proxy for HTTP traffic?

Is your computer completely clean of viruses, trojans, and spyware?

ok I have downloaded and ran kaspersky thanks for that. I was using mcafee, however a thread on here said it was crap so I got rid of it.

I still have problems in u torrent with the red arrows and slow downloads.

switeck asked if my isp use a proxy for http traffic, but I don't know what this means, can you please help

ok since I have ran these anti-virus programmes my internet will not work unless u torrent is completely switched off.

Trackers are still off-line and displaying varying messasges such as (connection closed by peer), (tracker status off-line, timed out) and another long message that i cant read fast enough as it is only on for about half a second.

In the proxy box on preferences it displays HTTP then a blank box then port 8080, is this what you were refering to in your first reply

I have tried different settings in the speed guide, however nothing changes.
