BandwidthSavior Posted June 14, 2007 Report Share Posted June 14, 2007 Hi, I just registered an account here due to a problem I'm having with peer connections.What has been happening, only happens with torrents I create (using uTorrent for creation). The tracker(s) will report that everything is working and I will see peers, but I can''t stay connected to them. So, most of the time, it will say "0 of x peers connected", only connecting for a few seconds at a time every once and awhile. Some data will get transferred, with speed climbing, sometimes to 40kb/s or so and then dropping back down to 0kb/s, with connected peers going back to 0 again.This does not happen at all with other peoples torrents, even on the same tracker(s). With those, my download speeds are excellent, getting 200-300KB/s sometimes, with upload speed reaching 80KB/s + (these are max rates I've seen, not average). Even when speed is slower, it is always at least steady, unlike with the ones I create and attempt to seed.This problem is not uTorrent specific it seems, as I tested to see if I had any better luck with several other clients to no avail. But, I posted this here as uTorrent is the client I prefer to use and I honestly don't know of a better place to ask for help about this.I have tried everything I can think of, max speeds, max peers, max global and every other general option in uTorrent as well as changing ports. I have tried so many different ports, I lose count. Ports are open on the router, the windows firewall, etc.. port test comes back as OK every time and I see no difference. This is very odd, because, as I said, I have no problems with torrents that others are seeding.I think I covered about everything, but of course, if there's any info I left out, feel free to ask.I'm not quite to the point of banging my head on the desk, but not far from So, any help on this will be greatly appreciated!EDIT:Additional info:-I have a cable connection.. very fast and forgive me for not knowing exactly, but I have seen transfers from FTP sites over 900kb/sec, if that helps.-I am using a Linksys NR041 wired router (firmware Version 1.2 Release 06) -- not sure how that info can help, but not being sure about this problem is why I am posting -I have used cFosSpeed, but it makes no difference with this problem whether it's enabled or disabled..-Just windows firewall here... Windows 2003 server edition-uTorrent settings, I have adjusted many ways. Currently, as I'm trying to figure this problem, I am using the default settings for xx/384, with encryption enabled. I have tried forced as well as none. This doesn't help.I can still connect no prob right now to others seeded torrents. Again, any help is appreciated.EDIT:Did I post this in the right place? Did I provide enough information? I know patience is an admirable virtue... but, any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
