Speed problem with Motorola Surfboard Modem.No problem with Webstar


Recommended Posts

I have a Athlonp Xp 2100+, 256 MB ram, Xp sp2 with all the current updates.My antivirus is NOD32 and I have no firewall installed. I have a Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem. I live in Romania an my ISP is RDS(Romania Data Systems.) My problem is that my download speed won't reach more than 50 kB/s (if it reaches 50kB/s is a miracle).Mostly it stays at around 10 kB/s. After I have unchecked "resolve IP's". When "resolve IP's", the speed would drop and stabilize to 0.1 kB/s. I don't have any router instaled. My motorola cable modem is directly linked to my computer. I don't have any other computers connected to my computer.These are the results of speed test on my computer: 141599010.png. Other friends in my town have WEBSTAR Cable Modem. They don't have any download problems. I had before on this same system a Webstar Modem. Unfortunately I can't get it back. Here in Romania they give you your modem and take it back when you finish you contract. I tryed enabling encription, randomizing port each time utorrent starts,disablin UpNp port maping, setting peer.lazy_bitfield to true. I don't know what else to try. (Except kill myself). Any ideas?

I don't have any router installed. A TV cable goes into my Motorola Surboard Modem and from the modem another cable goes into my network card.As far as I know that is what cable link is. I will try setting to 30 connections.

I don't know what has helped but speed seems to have increased to about 65-70kB/s. I don't know if it is only this torrent or all the other will download at the same speed.

Things I have tried:

1.Lowering the number of global connections.

2. I have unselected resolve ip's" .

3.I have disabled UPnP port maping.

4. I have selected "randomize port each time utorrent starts."

5. Se peer.lazy_bitfield to true and false. (now it's true)

6. Set net.max_half open to 4.

7.Set net.outgoing_ip to my ip address.

8. I have enabled encription.

9. I have disabled DHT.

10. Different torrent clients.

The colour of my status light in utorrent turns into green after about 1 minute.

The port checker tells me that the port is always accepting connections.

My operating sistem is Windows Xp SP2 with NOD 32 antivirus and no firewall.

My modem is Motorola Surf Board Modem Model Name: SBV5120, Software Version: SBV5120-,Boot Version: 8.2,Hardware Version: 1,Firmware Build Time: Mar 2 2005 08:48:40.

My ISP is RDS (Romania Data Systems.)

My upload and download speed is tested on my first post. I don't think I need to do it again.

My computer hardware configuration is: AMD Athlon XP 2100+, 256 MB RAM, 2 HDDs and nVIDIA FX 5200.
