michaelc123 Posted May 6, 2008 Report Share Posted May 6, 2008 I have a speeding problem (outlined under topic: Novice Torrentor having Connection & Speed problems! http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=39498). I can't port forward as it turns out (almost certainly) that I don't have a router (I use a EVDO/3G modem to connect) - it seems I'm behind some sort of ISP NAT firewall (I'm trying to verify this with my ISP).Meanwhile I came across this topic: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=10872 from 2006 (things may have changed since) which mentioned something called "traffic shaping software" (cFosSpeed was mentioned: http://www.cfos.de/speed/cfosspeed_e.htm). phaelox said: "Not a lot of routers have traffic shaping built-in yet, but there are software solutions such as cFosSpeed". There's other software, inc. freeware, that I found on Google: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=traffic+shaping+software.A lot of the forum topics talks about traffic shaping by ISPs. I'm talking about traffic on my own laptop. A lot of of talk about get the best out of already fast connection speeds (vs. my relatively slow one). My Connection speeds: 70KB/s DL, 9KBs UL, my uTorrent speeds: c. 10-15KBs DL & 6KBs UL.So questions: Does anyone uses this type of software on SLOW speeds and did it made any consistent difference? And what software did you use?ThanksMichaelC :/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
