i changed my incomeing connections from 8 to 4, tryed all the things in the guide ultima wrote like turning of dht etc, no change in my speed.

speed guide settings : upload limit 18 : upload slots 4 : connections per torrent 140 :

global connections 260 : max active torrents 1 : max active downloads 1 :

net.max_halfopen is set to 4 from 8, hasnt changed anything

operating system is vista

only have windows firewall but doesnt seem to change anything weither i have it off or on

my isp is slingshot new zealand. any help would bee appreciated .

ok i did that and nothing seems to have changed much. is there any way to connect to more seeders ? as im only connected to 30 (92)... also can someone explain to me why my download speeds are so slow compared to downloading someonthing from a web site.. i mean 10-30 kb per second seems alot more slower then 512..

Test a torrent from here... How quickly does it rum?

You don't need to connect to more seeds/peers to get faster speeds. BitTorrent is often slower than HTTP because you're downloading from other people who may not have as high an upload rate as web servers may have, and yet, are still uploading to other peers besides yourself.
