Confused even more "newbie" wants to increase speed


Recommended Posts

Trying to fix extremely slow download speed but, after reading related postings, I'm even more confused. (not torrent/downloading savvy)

Here is some info to hopefully help w/ correcting problem:

(for WindowsXP)

-speedtest = 340kb/s (download) 120kb/s (upload)

-transfer rate = 42.5kB/s

Here is info I copied from uTorrent "General" tab after file finally completed download:

Download speed: (0.0kB/s, avg. 5.2kB/s)

Wasted: 1.25MB (3 hashfails)

Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.

Checking port 60096

Error! Port 60096 does not appear to be open.

Please see www.portforward.com for more information about how to map a port.

Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website's IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5).

Not sure as to what any of this means or how to find out but maybe someone here does?
