Slow downloads (less than 3kbps)


Recommended Posts

I have been using BitLord for months successfully with good download speeds. Suddenly a few weeks ago the speed fell to less than 1kbps. I fiddled with all the settings, made sure the ports were forwarded correctly but nothing helped. I changed to BitTorrent but no better. Now with uTorrent they are running slightly better but not much. I have speed tested my connection and it's 1.5M down 0.2M up, I am finding lots of seeds, and my firewall is definately setup correctly. Could my ISP be blocking my downloads? Incidentally Shareaza is working a lot better, sometimes up to 40kbps.

That's the information I got when I looked up your IP range. Do some Googling and see if they filter or block BitTorrent traffic.
