anthonydesu Posted July 11, 2007 Report Share Posted July 11, 2007 Hello,I have been using BitComet for several years now, however I find that it isn't my cup of tea anymore, and I have decided to switch. Mainly because they cram too much into that program anymore and there are too many ads and a lot of nonsense.Anyways, I did have a chance to go through some of the forum and I was curious about what has been said about my ISP, Clearwire. And it seems that I have learned a lot recently about it, no thanks to the BitComet forums. I am happy to know that it does have problems and my lack of speed recently isn't due to some super crafty virus. So what I am trying to wrap my brain around is that clearwire's problem is that it throttles the connection preventing a smooth P2P connection from establishing, or something like that. So that means doom to those of us with 8 months left on our contract? I guess the more important thing I want to ask is if someone can help me with setting up my uTorrent program to be the best it can, assuming 5kB/s is now my standard. I did a speed test and I got 1220kb/s for upload and 170kb/s. I wanted to know that if I have this upload speed, should I put in my max at 192kb/s or 128kb/s? I am not sure if it is a good idea to round up, but it isn't like I can get a lot of good juice out of my connection due to my ISP.And I guess my last question is, since I use clearwire, and I have no router, do I need things checked in uTorrent like port mapping or should I uncheck it? I guess I could try either way, but I was told on BitComet since I don't use a router, I should have it unchecked, however, since I have a funkey ISP, I wouldn't want to assume it is exactly the same.Well, thanks for reading what questions and concerns I have. Thank you very much! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
