Hrundi Posted January 26, 2008 Report Share Posted January 26, 2008 My laptop has open ports, and generally gets abysmal speeds. I've tried everything, lowering connections, tried the whole gamut of speed ranges. The light is green, I've disabled DHT, and disabled/enabled various other things too, no dice. I've also patched tcpip.sys.The funny thing is, that my desktop with all ports closed, gets faster speeds with DHT.Example: my laptop gets 12kb/s down and 25kb/s up on a torrent without DHT.My closed (red) desktop gets 45-70kb/s down and 600-700kb/s up with DHT.Also, when utorrent is running, browsing and domain resolving slows to a crawl on my laptop, but there's no difference on the desktop.I have no modems, a generic network hub, and an ISP level router which I can't generally access.Service is advertised as cable and a potential max of 15 mbit, but international performance is very variable.So why does a closed ports computer get faster speeds with DHT than a green open ports one?Also, I rarely connect to more than 50 people, usually less, no matter what my settings are. And of those people, I, on average, download maybe from 5-15.Any help would be appreciated.Edit: Also, due to the abysmal internet speeds caused by running utorrent, another symptom is that trackers time out after a bit of running.
