Can a 3g dongle Internet connection handle Torrent traffic


Peely

Recommended Posts

usage limits aside. if i get a 3g dongle, will it be able to handle torrents. i know i cant port forward, so im not going to get very impressive speeds. i ask because I'll be going to University soon, and i doubt they will want me using there connections for torrents :)

Just like to say, this is my first post, and i LOVE uTorrent, it is by far my favourite app of all time. well done good sir, well done.

Both the 3G network and the USB dongle might not like many simultaneous connections. Problems with the former can cause slow internet. Problems with the latter can result in BSODs and system slowdowns/freezes. If you have problems you have to limit the max number of connections in µTorrent. Sometimes as low as 20 before the problems disappear.

And do not increase the max_halfopen. You might even try reducing it to 4 or 2 if you experience the above mentioned problems.
