Slow downloads and weird peer connections


Recommended Posts

I'm downloading a torrent and it's going very slowly ie between 1.5kB/s and 5 kB/s. I notice that when I click on the peers tab that I have a lot of peer connections where the percentage is 0.5% and doesn't change but they are downloading (at faster speeds than I can manage) a fair bit from me. The IP addresses are all very similar ie 72.172.xx.xxx and to narrow down further the IP addresses then go 72.172.89.xxx (about 5 of those), then 72.172.90 (again another 5) and 72.172.91.xxx and so on.

Can someone explain what's happening and whether there is anything I can do about it?
