Not using even a 10th of my connection, slows browsing to crawl...


Recommended Posts

While uTorrent isn't using even one tenth of my down speed and around half of my upload, browsing in firefox and internet explorer is a slow crawl, often ending in timeouts. I can't even login to msn messenger while downloading. It didn't used to be like this, just started today. I even did a speed test with uTorrent off, so it isn't my connection (when I tried running it while utorrent was on, the test wouldn't load).

OK! Port 49152 is open and accepting connections.

You will be able to receive incoming BitTorrent connections.

BAD settings. Read the Speed Guide's instructions and select the correct UPLOAD speed. Clearly, you didn't bother reading the first link in my signature -- makes me wonder why you're asking for help if you're not following suggestions.

10 torrents at once with 4 upload slots each?


You must really hate the other people on the torrents you get.

Because if your total upload speed is only 15 KiloBYTES/sec...

That means you're only uploading to other people at 0.375 KiloBYTES/sec on average.

(15 KiloBYTES/sec upload speed divided by 10 torrents divided by 4 upload slots per torrent.)

For your line, it's pretty much excessive to have more than 3 torrents going at once with 3 upload slots each.

...and I'm being generous to say that. :P

(That's still less than 2 KiloBYTES/sec per person if total upload is only 15 KiloBYTES/sec.)

May work 'ok' for you, but it's cruel to those on the same torrents.

You're not even offering dial-up speeds to them.

What I said is pretty close to absolute max for 15 KiloBYTES/sec upload speed:

3 torrents max, 3 upload slots.

Even that will be giving out less than 2 KiloBYTES/sec upload speed per person.
