Anyone recommend how to set Utorrent so that I can get better speeds? It's staying around the 14kB/s range no matter what torrent I use.... I had way better speeds with BitTornado....

Now that is a setup to drool over.. Understandable that you're bummed about your speeds.. What status message is displayed in the statusbar? Network OK?

Also, I don't see why this would cause issues, but you're forwarding the ports AND using UPnP.. (UPnP should handle the port forwarding itself)..

Temporarily put your pc in the DMZ to see if its a NAT type error..

There has also been talk about isp BT capping.. Would be sad if your 8Mb connection was subject to that, but you could give bitcomet a go to see if the encrypted BT header option speeds things up

I'm pretty sure that I'm not capped... was using BitTornado before and got speeds up to the 700s as for the status bar... it says Network OK so... should I unfoward my ports on the router? but I had the ports forwarded and UPnP type1 enabled in BitTornado...
