Speed and DHT problems, and I HAVE READ OTHER THREADS, Still lost

the cos...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I read


all the way through, and I dont understand it one bit. Not great w/ computers

I understand what DHT is now, but dont know how to fix it.

I am using a Dlink 524 Wireless router, but I am connected VIA a cable, I have norton antivirus, No firewall ever installed until I figure this out. I have forwarded the listening port properly, checked this out, both in my router and in my windows firewall.

I tested my ISP speed and set the upload/download speed accordingly, am using 200 max connections, 100 per seed and that jazz.

I dont know where the setting for 1/2 ports (or whatever its called) is located in utorrent, i found it on bitcomet but had worse download rates then w/ utorrent so switched back.

I have encryption forced and Have unchecked allow incoming legacy connections (im with shaw in calgary and am told this is how to stop script mapping)

I have also unchecked UPnP port mapping, as I remember reading somewhere this is one step you can do (portfoward.com) i think

I am averaging between 69 and 233 (max ever) KB/Sec right now on 4 files, one of which that is with 190 Seeds and 1023 Peers (12 and 50 connected in respectivley) and am DLing at 36.4 kB/Sec

DHT never says anything except (0) login or waiting to log on

Could really use a hand guys to co-ordinate this properly

DHT may not work properly with Shaw Cable in Canada, just disable it.

What is your line's USEABLE upload speeds for µTorrent?

That is a huge decider for how fast people will upload back to you. If you're not sending much out (even if it's due to your ISP being evil), then they're not going to send much back in return. Worse still, if you try to upload FASTER than your connection can handle, it will overload in such a way as to only average about 50% max upload speed...and your download speed may fall to almost 0.

An even more complex problem is upload slots per torrent versis total upload speed. If you're allowing 4 upload slots per torrent (the default) and running 4 torrents at once, you'll probably have poor download speeds if you're uploading less than 32 KB/sec total. In that case, either upload slots per torrent or max active torrents needs to be reduced (probably from 4 to 3)...or you need to increase max upload speed.

oh I dont know how much I am paying them for how can i figure something like that out.

I just ran the DSL tester on www.dslreports.com, and it says that I am running at 550.9kB/Sec download and 59.6 kB/Sec upload


I chose those maximums for my DL and UL speeds, I just have heard of some people getting retarded speeds (500+ K) but they might be full of poop, and yes it was on UTorrent, and yes it was on shaw, and they said they havnt changed anything before

Holy crap now something else has happened.

I went and changed all the stuff i could and when i went to the speed guide, i changed it and clicked test listening port and this time it said

'Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.

Checking port 41305 on

Error! Port 41305 does not appear to be open.

Please see www.portforward.com for more information about how to map a port.

Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com ( in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website's IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5). '

Now what the hell??? I dont know what I have done wrong, I did forward it in my router properly

Also in cmd --> IP config --> and the data there, Default gateway and DNS Servers are almost identical and the subnet mask is 3 numbers repeated three times... is this normal? I think i might have the wrong default gateway and DNS server

My god, what have i done

Your external ip is your internet ip.

Your internal ip is your LAN (Local Area Network) ip "inside" your router and on your computer.

Incoming Internet packets need to find your computer so they need to be forwarded/routed inside your network...that's what port forwarding should accomplish.
