I want to increase my speed


Recommended Posts

I've read through quite a few posts and cant understand which settings i should change to get better downloading speed. I use to use Azureus and it worked fine but I just felt like changing up my downloading program to something else and i was recommended this.

So my settings are this

Upload Limit: 120 kB/s

Upload Slot: 8

Connection (per-torrent): 100

Connection (Global): 750

Max Active Torrents: 9

Max Active Downloads: 8

And when i did the speed test these were my results:

Download: 9886 kbps

Upload: 1710 kbps

So any recommendations on my settings?

Oh yea if my computer stats are needed here:

Manufacturer: Dell Computer Corporation

Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)

Memory: 1022MB RAM

Hard Drive: 159 GB

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6200

Monitor: SONY SDM-HS75P

Sound Card: Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit


Keyboard: USB Root Hub

Mouse: USB Root Hub

Mouse Surface: Logitech G5

Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254)

This is the code I got from the speed test if I mentioned anything wrong with my data.

Ok yea i kinda just noticed that and i changed it to 2mbit. But i was wondering if there are any recommendations on what to set my halfopens and connect speed?? or anything else im not really sure. I'm using the default which is like halfopen: 8 and connect_speed: 20

The default of halfopen: 8 and connect_speed: 20 is more than good enough for your connection *IF* you get the green light in µTorrent...and are actually getting incoming connections.

If you get the yellow or red light all the time, which means you're almost certainly firewalled, you will want to resolve that problem...but if it's impossible to un-firewall µTorrent, then you might want to increase both halfopen and connect_speed to maybe 40 each.

NOTE: You MUST patch Win XP Pro SP 2 using a 3rd party patch to handle half open connection rates over 10! AND Window's limit must be a bit higher than the value you use in µTorrent. So if you used 40 in µTorrent, Window's limit needs to be at least 50. Setting the value really high, like over 1000 is just begging for a disaster -- as either a virus/trojan/spyware will actually try to USE that limit, or windows will just glitch up on its own somehow. :P
