Is the whole "internet sea cable cut" issue resolved or still at large?

I am in Dubai using etisalat, everything is working fine for me now. its just that utorrent took long long time (the whole day) to connect to the nodes now i am downlaoding at full speeds. Try to connct with torrents with lots of seeds & leeches. I think torrent downloads are not blocked its just a high server latency or something... sorry I dont know much technically

I am able to downlod, but utorrent to conntecting to hardly 1 seed and 1 peer or sometimes connecting to only 1 peer.

After launching utorrent it is taking long time to connect to any peer or seed.

When it is getting peer or seed it is downloading at speed of only 5 to 6 kb/sec, not more than this.

Is others are observing same in uae?

Happy New Year... 2009 Wishing you Happy LIFE....

I thought this was from the CABLE CUT but as ---jack187 --- said Etisalat add a porxy and you can do the following:

SOLUTION:

in your utorrent:

Options--> Pereferences--> Connection

Proxy Server Type: HTTP

Proxy: proxy1.emirates.net.ae PORT:8080

This sure will Work..... enjoy and start your dowloading....

Teamoo007,

Tried above also but nothing is downloading.

torrent file is showing that peers are availble but not connecting to anyone.

Is any thing else need to be changed ?

Changed as suggested by teamoo007 & Ij007 ........

surprisingly my all dead torrent started running within few seconds.

What was the reason... Can anybody explain me please.

But triangle in status bar is showing Yellow (normally before it used to be Green after forwarding the port in router settings) Any clues ????

Thanks to all who supported in this difficult time

One more query : Should I make DHT Enabled or Disabled ? Please suggest.

Hi. I can connect and get download speeds of about 20 kB/s. I have tried to forward a port from my router (DLINK DSLG604T), but each time it doesn't work. I know how to set up the port forwarding, but it shows that the port is closed by Etisalat. Which ports do you use for forwarding?

Oh, my friend also told me this, its working fine!

I was going to post it here but temoo007 did it already! :D

Youtube also works, okay everything fine!

Cheers!

@Anoop: If you use private trackers then don't enable DHT if public like mininova, pirate bay, then you can.

I use private trackers so no speed problems for me. ^_^

Also guys, why not direct connection works? :|

I don't think its possible to forward ports on proxy :|

I just want to have the green ticked mark on utorrent, i have done port forward, still its yellow because of the proxy. :|

I tried this but none of my torrents have started to download.For all the trackers it says proxy connect error:hostname not found or proxy connect error:offline(timed out).Any ideas ??

teamoo007,

I am able to download, but traingle shown in status bar is yellow.

So I was thinking that something is wrong but i read in post of other users that they have also yellow traingle.

Might be due to proxy server.

I am able to download at the speed of between 15kb/s to 25kb/s.

I am not sure how can i increase this....

How much maximu speed i can get with connection of 256kbps ? please let me know.

Anoop
