phantomc Posted January 3, 2008 Report Share Posted January 3, 2008 Hello guys. I currently have a 20mbit/20mbit line which I recently purchased, and it's a brand new ISP for Turkey.Anyways, during a free-leech week in HDBits, I was able to upload up to 2-3MB/second with my new connection, which I was quite happy with. Then I tweaked some settings such as the TCP/IP connection patch. I increased windows half connections to 65555 or something and utorrent's to 200.When I check the utorrent program, my upload is about 200-500kbits/sec, which I suspected could be due to smaller number of leechers after the free-leech week.However, I realized that my trackers constantly went offline after about 2-3 mins from an update. I observe this in Hdbits and black-cats as well.I went and researched utorrent forums, and most posts pointed to ISP throttling/shaping which I believe could be the case as they sometimes seem to block the port I was using (57062). It is interesting because I set it to a lower number 49009 and it works perfectly, i.e. I get the green port light always and when checkingit. I'm not sure if ISP shaping is the case, because the ISP is new and its nearly my 7th day.When I researched further, I suspected the half connection patch to be the cause and saw this in some utorrent posts. I'm using Vista x64 ultimate so my initial half connection number was 25 (which I modified from 8).Do you guys think that this is an ISP issue or a high half connection number issue from my side? Or it could be both, as I'm using high number of connections for download/upload and they somehow flagged me. Should I call the ISP and ask if they flagged me, and would this problem go away if I decrease the half connections to 50 or 25 or 8?What should be the half connection size for a 20/20mbit connection and a 100/100mbit connection (which I hopefully will buy if the ISP is not shaping the torrents...)I'm going to go mad with this issue, although download speeds are fine, upload speed is lowered and tracker goes offline... I'm thinking of buying usenet :-PA thing to add is that I connect the PC directly to the wall via a Cat5e cable, so I might be throttling the company's router with high half connections, so that's why they may be punishing me Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
