Can anyone help, theses download speeds are horrible


Recommended Posts

I have recently been having very slow download speeds, it came up all of the sudden and I don't understand why.

This I have compared to my friends computer who has the same setup as me but his downloads are much faster then mine. Example both started to down load a movie at the same time and the same movie his finished in 3hrs mine is not done and is telling me 3 weeks to go.

I have done a speed test and my speeds are good for my cable modem download speed 3000kb/s and upload 258kb/s latency 79ms.

Also my port is open and accepting connections.

I am with rogers cable not extreme but the one just below that.

But when i try to test my port forwarding it gets this error message 75% of the time

I have taken my router out of the equation by connecting my cable straight to the computer, and yes i did completely uninstall zone alarm but still had the same reaction, so i just reinstalled it.

I usually get a green light.

I have forwarded my port on zonealarm

upload limit: 10kb/s

connections (per-torrent): 1000

Max active torrents: 8

Upload slots: 3

Connections (global): 2000

Max active downloads: 5

On my "tracker status:" I keep getting "Connection closed by peer"

Can anyone help, theses download speeds are horrible.
