torrentcrazy Posted January 21, 2006 Report Share Posted January 21, 2006 First, I'm on 170 KB/s Down, 28 KB/s Up connection as reported by speed tests.When I put in a value in the download limit, for example 100 or 130 KB/s, my downloads aren't slow, but they aren't as fast as usual and don't come close to the limit I set. When I put in 0(unlimited) for the download limit, my downloads take off like they were set free from some constraint. Does using a value in the download limit slot some how throttle your downloads and slow them down even if you aren't approaching the limit?*edit* This is amazing. One torrent went from like 12-15 KB/s to like 50 KB/s after I put 0(unlimited) in for the download limit. Before I changed it, my download speed wasn't even close to the limit I had set so there was no reason for the torrent to stay at 12-15 KB/s. This can't be just coincidence, I watched it for too long and then bam, the download increases soon after I put in 0(unlimited)*edit* Hot damn, they're all picking up. I'm downloading at 111 KB/s with 0(unlimited) download setting. I was barely cracking 50 with a 130 KB/s set as the download limit. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
