Slow download speed


Recommended Posts

i am having problem with my utorrent upload and download speed. when i tested the open office torrent it topped at 95kbps(which is my normal speed before i formatted) while the average is 53kbps.

i tried everything but it seems it did not work from port forwarding, adding an application rule in the kasperky firewall settings using i saw in this website and using peer guardian(although i did not use in my open office test).

before i got green light but when my pc crashed due to bad uninstallation of webroot spysweeper(so i formatted my pc because thats the only way i know to fix my pc).

I also tested other clients like bitcomet and bit tornado but its seems i have the same problem with others

These are the information:

The network status bar is triangle yellow

The message i get is "Error! Port 43561 does not appear to be open."

i have chosen 768kbit because the speed of my broadband is that

my net.max halfopen is 8

windows xp sp3

kaspersky internet security 7.0

linksys wrt54g with serial number starts in cdfa so i think its rev 4.

PLDT myDSL(Philippine ISP)

ADSL type of connection

855 kbps download speed and 249 kbps upload speed according to http://www.auditmypc.com/

nope port forwarding did not this time. before my pc crashed it worked. i checked again and its starts with cdfa and the firmware version is v4.21.1 . Is there a way for me to make things work without screwing my router. This is my brother's router and he will fry my balls if i screwed this up because its our only way to communicate with him because he is working abroad.

And i forgot to say that i read that upgrading your router's firmware might screw things up so i am willing to tweak the settings of my pc. i am hesitant to do firmware upgrade but if its the best thing i need to do. Ill give it a shot even in danger of my balls being deep fried

thanks again.

I'm not talking about this time, I mean at all. µT can forward automatically. Also, on the router, go to the status page, the address under login type, what's the first half? Also, what Kaspersky modules do you have installed?

Wow, someone who actually has a correct IPA, I may or may not be able to help then. First, Kaspersky from my experience screws things up bad, on some modules. Do you still have your license data? If not, can you try to get it back? I think the site for Kaspersky allows for recovery.

yes i have and i can uninstall it if its your recommendation. If i chose to uninstall it please give me a free alternative for antivirus. Will avira antivir, threatfire, spywareblaster and spyware terminator combo is a good choice?

Thanks again sir. If kaspersky is screwing things then i am very willing to just throw the remaining days of its license(which is actually less than 30 days).


the green light before appeared even my antivirus is kaspersky

I was going to suggest uninstalling completely and then reinstalling without the firewall component (router is also a firewall). First verification of your router settings, make sure you set a static IPA ending higher then 149 or lower then 100 (Ex., and forward to that. It's been said that the stock firmware hates forwarding to automatic or something. Make sure you use your COMPUTERS address in the port forwarding section (some people mess that up..), and disable UPnP on µT, than reboot your router (possible UPnP bug).

If that doesn't work, try bypassing the router temporarily to see if the port is opened that way.

i have reinstalled the kaspersky without the firewall and i disabled windows firewall also. I put my router into a reset. You said router is a firewall so i left the router firewall enable(according to some guides it must be disabled). yes the static IPA ending is still 187. i make sure that the port is correctly forwarded(i've done it a lot of times). I disabled the UPNP on utorrent. When it comes to firmware upgrade to my router it had an upgrade according to my brother

But when i bypassed the router, it turned green and the 6884 port(new port is used) is ready for connections. Is my router doing things bad that i need to have a firmware upgrade?

Ill be returning tomorrow. I got to go to bed because i have my class.

Thanks for your help i think were nearing to solve the problem



I have taken all the guts i got and upgraded my firmware, I also reinstalled the firewall and added a rule allowing the utorrent by just following the guide i saw here in this site. IT WORKED!!!

Thank you guys for continual support for the utorrent community. Godspeed
