Wont go faster then 5 - 10 kb/s


Recommended Posts


Since I downloaded uTorrent I got problems with it,

It won't go faster as 5 - 10 kb/s while I got a 10mb/s provider

I followed the recommed setting guide for it, won't increase

I searched a full day, nothing helped

My processor is Windows XP SP 2

I port forwaded corectly, and also it can pass through my firewall.

The port I use is port 6881

Could anyone help me?

Kind Regards,

Suggest not using standard ports 6881-6969 is ... standard these days. Some ISPs do port-based shaping. Additionally you've tried the test torrents (only to download part, the data is unnecessary) http://slackware.com/torrents/ ?

Are you seeing http://utorrent.com/faq.php#What_does_Download_Limited_in_the_status_bar_mean.3F ?

Any port you want (above 1024 generally, and not within the "accepted" bittorrent range 6881-6969)... up to 65534.

You could even use a random-number generator for any 5 digit number < 65534 ... unfortunately the test torrent going that fast means it's not a limitation on your connection (at least for very fast peers).

Go through http://utorrent.com/setup_guide.php again and maybe use http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=34259 Switeck's numbers for your upload speed :/

Yeah, I guessed that. I guess you don't have the status bar enabled? Go to the View menu... shortcut keys, F4-F7, toolbar, details, status bar, category pane.

You really shouldn't limit your upload like that. If you have trouble with your upload @ the expected amount in either the default speed guide or Switeck's numbers, more investigation warrants.
