freja Posted August 30, 2007 Report Share Posted August 30, 2007 Hi, I have been using utorrent for a few months and then last week my service provider shut off my internet connection because I had inadvertantly gone over my allotted bandwidth limit. I had no idea that there was a limit, or that I could be fined for going over it, or that I could be investigated because of it. The limit is a combined limit for both downloads and uploads and I had exceded my limit just in the uploads alone. So I need some advice on how to minimize my bandwidth usage, hopefully by changing my seeding settings so I don't have to sacrifice too many downloads. I have read the faq and searched this forumn but I am still confused about the seeding settings. I'm pretty sure my settings are what they were by default. My 'seed while' ratio is set to 150% and "ignore" time. And my upload rate is set to 70kb/s. In the month I had uploaded 2/3 as much as I had downloaded (which included non-utorrent bandwidth downloads like watching streamed video or music, so I don't know what the utorrent-only breakdown is - but the uploading was pretty much only utorrent). How can I tweak my settings (these or any others I don't know about) to limit my bandwidth usage?Thanks for any help, freja Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
