Slow Download Speeds on Popular Torrents... WHY!! D:


Recommended Posts

I've been reading speed FAQs... And Tutorials, and everything I could find for hours, and I can't figure it out.

Yesterday, I was getting like 70 kb/s.. Now im getting 0. Seeds: 0 (0).. Peers: 0 (777)...

I recently changed my IP address through my router.. But even before that I wasn't getting anything. The port I use is supposedly open.. (Is there a way to test this?).. It's really annoying. I've downloaded like 20 random torrents with good seeds and peers, and im not connecting to any of them.

Anyone.. Someones gotta know my problem..

Also, if I reinstall utorrent, will i be able to continue my torrent downloads at the same % I'm currently at? Or will i need to start over? ;(

Shaw cable has a 'learning' traffic shaper. Things start off great, then if you exceed more than a certain amount of bandwidth used in 24 hours or so...BAM! everything slows to a snail's pace.

You'll probably need far lower settings than max speeds, just so you don't hit their awful limits as quick.
