Problem with the port and light.


Recommended Posts

My firewall settings allow utorrent. I've port forwarded manually and still not no avail! utorrent is on red, so downloading is EXTREMELY slow!

What do I do now? or maybe I didn't do the port forwarding correctly. Can someone please help me? please email me at clepsydra49@gmail.com.

If uTorrent isn't set up according to your upload settings, uTorrent will try to upload much too fast or too slowly -- causing peers to not want to return the favor and they may not upload back to you...so your download speed can be very low as a result.

Speed Guide (CTRL+G) has a speed test option in it.

Speed of torrents can depend heavily on whether a really fast seed just quit...which is NOT within your control!


You may have another software firewall on your computer that needs configuring/removing.

Is your ISP hostile?

Switeck, i don't know why. Sometime my download speed can shoot up to 400kb/s but not for long. Then it will drop to 20,10kb/s.

Regarding your speed guide tutorial...Do i just need to adjust the upload/download digit? For example..

Well my speed test shows: http://www.speedtest.net/result/415902016.png

So i assume i need to follow 256kb/s in your chart?

Yes...but since you're in Singapore, you probably need to use more extreme encryption settings:


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

DISABLE: UPnP, NAT-PMP, LPD, DHT (both kinds!), and Resolve IPs (right-click in PEERS window on an active torrent).

Hopefully, level 4 is good enough.
