Slow download speeds


Recommended Posts

Copied from the connection setup guide

1. I have tried everything in the sticky.

2. Network status light in uTorrent is a green tick.

3. What the port checker from the Speed Guide writes.

port 55555 on 92.17.xxx.xxx...

OK! Port 55555 is open and accepting connections.

You will be able to receive incoming BitTorrent connections.

4. What the Speed Guide shows your settings to be (press Ctrl+G in µTorrent)

connection type - 384k

upload limit - 25kb/s

upload slots - 4

connections - 80

connections (global) - 230

max active torrents - 3

max active downloads - 2

current port - 55555

Enable Encryption - box is ticked.

5. What you have net.max_halfopen set to (Preferences > Advanced in µTorrent)


# Operating system installed (Windows XP, 2000, ME, 98, 95, NT? Something else?)

Win XP SP2

# Security software installed (firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antiadware)

Zonealarm free version, AVG Anti-Virus Free version.

# Exact router model(s), and exact modem model#

BT Voyager 2110

# ISP (Internet Service Provider) being used


# Connection type (DSL, cable, dial-up), and the results obtained from the speed test (when running the Speed Guide), for both download AND upload.

DSL, 2000kb/s download, 360kb/s upload

Any help is very much appreciated, my download speeds are anything from 0kb/s to 20kb/s on uTorrent. Other downloads on the internet peak at around 400kb/s.

The test torrents in the sticky ran as slowly as all the other downloads I have tried. The Glasnost ISP Throttle Test does not work for me at this time, although I saw no mention of AOL in the ISP throttle sticky.

Can anyone help?

EDIT: 208 views, 1 reply? Is anybody out there :P
