onetwothree Posted May 12, 2007 Report Share Posted May 12, 2007 I've been using utorrent for a long time and my downloading speed has always been up to the limit (180+kB/s). However since 2 weeks ago, the speeds have been really low. Most of the time it's less than 1kB/s. I'm connected to a lot of peers (>100) but I'm only download from one or two of them. Each time I get connected to a new peer, a value is shown in the download speed column for a few seconds than it goes blank. It didn't use to be like this, I'm not sure what went wrong. I didn't change anything. The only thing I can think of is that I updated my zonealarm firewall software just before this problem came up. I have since deleted zonealrm but the problem was not resolved. I have the green tick status icon at the bottom.My port forwarding status is okI'm using ADSL connection and the internet speed test result is 1118/524 Kbps (average)I've tried testing a torrent from OpenOffice.org, Slackware Linux and Ubuntu Linux. All showed the same problem.I've also tried trying all the other settings. None help.What could be causing the problem? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
