upload but no download speed..please help!


Recommended Posts

hi, i sometimes do get a download speed but it is only small e.g. 2k/s!! upload speed is generally running at about 20kb/s. I am new to using torrent software and i need as much help as possible! Im quite sure that my download speed should be a lot higher considering i have 1Mbs internet speed (not the best i no!). Help please!!

nope, i did go through it all and still nothing!

heres the info

- Green network status light in µTorrent's status bar

- Port forwarded correctly

- Speed guide says should be about 100kb/s

- Using Vista Home Premium

- Windows firewall (uTorrent not blocked)

- Creative Broadband Blaster DSL Router 8133U-C1

- Talk Talk ISP


- Speed Results:

Your connection is: 245 Kbps or 0.2 Mbps

You uploaded at: 30 kB/s

You are running: 4 times faster than 56K and can upload 1 megabyte in 34.13 second(s)

TalkTalk limits BitTorrent traffic. I'd switch to a port meant for VoIP as your main port for incoming connections, along with changing your Encryption type to 'Forced'

Hopefully that will help you, but it's almost certainly your ISP. I'm glad you got that out of the way in your list, that narrowed it down instantly. I've never actually dealt with TalkTalk or anyone who used it before, but hopefully forcing encryption will help.

If it doesn't, well, unfortunately there isn't much that can be done besides switching ISPs. Sorry I couldn't be of more help :(
