MonsieurFluffe Posted September 28, 2006 Report Share Posted September 28, 2006 Not too long ago i reinstalled my entire windows OS and the speeds of my torrents have dropped so insanely low that its depressing.So far i've tried every single tip on speeding up that's out there and nothing has worked. I have seeds and peers that i am connected to, however, as i refer to the FLAGS column (im using Utorrent btw), from what i can see, im ready to download from many of my peers but they are not willing to send me anything. There are also many peers that i seem to have "snubbed". As for the peers that i DO download from, i tend to download at speeds off less than 1 kb/s and only for a few seconds, before the download for that single peer stops. I do know however, that i AM capable of reaching high speeds, if im lucky. For example, recently i downloaded a movie that had about 2000 seeds and 1000 leechers. My speeds went up to 90 kb/s! But with every other torrent, i cant even reach above 5kb/s. This is very depressing as im used to high speeds, which i cant seem to achieve ever since i reinstalled my windows OS. Any help is appreciated! P.S. I understand that torrents work on "credit" as in, i'll get more speed if i share more. Could my "credit" have been reset after my OS reinstallation?Here's a screenshot. maybe someone can help me understand my peers a bit more by reading the flags?
