cirdan Posted January 20, 2006 Report Share Posted January 20, 2006 first time poster, hi.ive tried to sort this out myself for the past few days. ive used the various guides on the forum and looked through some posts to see if i could find a solution.the problem is my broadband speed has been upgraded from 1mb to 4mb yet the total download speed i reach is only on a par with the old connection. ive done several speed tests and they come out fine, ive downloaded trailers/game demos and get regular download speeds of mid 400KB/s. ive had a few files going at once and just one file going but nothing has so far topped 100KB/s download.i was getting that on my old connection, i think i probably averaged something around 80KB/s previously, so thought 4mb would give me a bit more. i know there are lots of things to take into consideration but i thought id at least get over 200KB/s, should i? the upload is fine though, ive done the sums and set it between 30 and 36KB/s and that is always being reached, infact by the time id finsihed a download id uploaded around 3/4 of the file which i dont mind as long as im getting good download speeds which im not. i even tried lowering the upload to what i had it set to previously but that only lowered my download speed.im using a cable motorala modem plugged into back of p.c. with usb. i know that is working fine yet it seems something is stopping the speeds from going up. ive given utorrent access from the firewall: sygate and winxp's own one. any advice please?cheers.
