aedes Posted August 31, 2008 Report Share Posted August 31, 2008 I'm currently using utorrent 1.8 on XP, with norton as my antivirus. For the past week or so, I've been noticing a change in the behaviour of utorrent. Whenever I download a torrent, my speeds are being reported incorrectly in the status bar in the bottom. Normally, I can get around 500kb/s total download speed using utorrent, and ~300kb/s total upload speed. In the past week, this has dropped significantly to a max of 30kb/s total download speed and 30kb/s total upload speed; however, the status bar reports that I'm getting 500 kb/s total download and 30kb/s total upload. So it's not really stating the correct download speed anymore.Port forwarding is working fine, no firewall issues, my ISP doesn't throttle, and I have everything encrypted anyways. One hypothesis that's in my head right now is that because utorrent thinks that I'm using 500kb/s down, even though it's only using 30kb/s, it's limiting increasing the download speed any further, in order to 'optimize' it's performance based on the stated speed of my internet connection (2mb/s)The other odd behavior I've noticed is that whenever I have utorrent running, my internet speed absolutely plummets, even though I'm only downloading at like 30kb/s on a 2mb internet connection. Again, this behavior just started recently.So something odd is going on, and I don't think it's (entirely) to do with my own internet connection.Anyone else have similar problems? Any ideas?Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
