Antagonistix Posted December 31, 2007 Report Share Posted December 31, 2007 Hi All,I have been using uTorrent for about a month now, and all seemed ok until last week.I have a 2meg down, 256K up ADSL service in the UK. Prior to using uTorrent I was using emule for most things until I found out how fast torrents could download.I download mainly movies and TV serials, and watch them on my PC or laptop or handheld.Usually I get an average of 60 to 70Kbps download which peaks at anything up to 190K and occasionally they drop to high 20's or low 30's (for good torrents).Recently however, I have noticed that after 7PM EVERY evening, I get a radical drop and my downloads hardly reach double figures. This continues until past midnight or sometimes until 11PM ish (UK - GMT time).I attach a screenshot that shows the speed graph tool in utorrent.http://img299.imageshack.us/my.php?image=utscreen1as5.jpgMy question is - is this my ISP throttling me every evening ?Or is it that the torrents I get are mainly US based peers and seeds ? I have tried the slackware torrent - same result.In either case, is there anything I can do ? - becuase I suffer the same fate every evening now and the timing isnt exact - sometimes at 7.30PM sometimes at 6.30 until I go to bed - 1am ish. So i cant download when I am actually on my PC !!!! Unless I am in during the day.Any suggestions would be much appreciated.I have run the setup guide step by step and followed ultimas recommendations also.I have used speedguide to set the connections and the status light is as shown - green and port forward test works fine. I have tried "forced" protocol encryption with no difference.If it is my ISP - they dont throttle normal http access as the speed tests work at dslguide etc.. during these "blackouts" - just torrents in utorrent are very slow.Are other torrent software likely to go through the radar? like Bitcomet?Thanks in advance.(Windows XP SP2) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
