ComCast is known to have SpeedBoost which causes speed tests to show temporary speeds higher than SUSTAINABLE speeds.

Your real download and upload max are likely far lower.

My guess is your upload max is either 384 kilobits/second or 768 kilobits/second.

Try the 2nd link in my signature for decent settings for either upload speed. :)

ComCast does have a policy of disconnecting BitTorrent connections after awhile, so on older torrents with fewer than 10 total seeds+peers it can be VERY hard to stay connected to most of them! It helps immensely to NOT be firewalled, as the peers/seeds will often try to reconnect automatically on their own.

looks fine. so what the problem ? you reached your defined download limit at a constant rate. Sounds OK to me. I would double the# of upload slots, and personally - cancel the DL limit when bandwidth is not required for other applications.

don't worry for the low upload, there is simple not much demand for this specific torrent...
