Response to DreadWingKnight: after posting i realized i made a mistake after looking a couple other random threads so i changed my speed to the 640kb/s configuration.

Response to Switeck: I did both of those and the problem still persists any suggestions?

Response to xlemonx1: Yes sometimes my downloads will spike up to 300kb/s to 350kb/s only for a brief minute or two. Im am downloading from sources that have literally thousands of peers and seeds yet i only connect to about 20-40 of them and get slow speeds.

Experiment with encryption settings:


(Note: My post immediately following that one explains what settings in uTorrent are similar to the Azureus ones.)

Is DHT (both kinds) disabled?

If the torrent/s are public ones, definitely leave Peer Exchange enabled. Even if not, Peer Exchange won't have any effect on private torrents nor use more bandwidth.
