Very low non excisting downloading or uploading speeds.

# EVERYTHING you've tried so far, including ANYTHING listed above (please be as explicit and specific as you can). Tell us what your changed settings are.

I've tried everything in the speed guide.

# Color of the network status light in µTorrent's status bar (at the bottom of the µTorrent main window)

Green, and ports are forwarded.

# What the port checker from the Speed Guide writes

Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.

Checking port 49152 on

OK! Port 49152 is open and accepting connections.

You will be able to receive incoming BitTorrent connections.

# What the Speed Guide shows your settings to be (press Ctrl+G in µTorrent)

Connect type xx/640k

# What you have net.max_halfopen set to (Preferences > Advanced in µTorrent)


# Operating system installed (Windows XP, 2000, ME, 98, 95, NT? Something else?)

Windows XP SP3

# Security software installed (firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antiadware)

NOD32 and Sunbelt Personal Firewall

# Exact router model(s), and exact modem model

Linksys WAG54GS V1.00.08

# ISP (Internet Service Provider) being used

Talk Talk

# Connection type (DSL, cable, dial-up), and the results obtained from the speed test (when running the Speed Guide), for both download AND upload. Be sure that you aren't using your connection for any other reason besides testing, while testing. That means no downloading, no IMing, no µTorrent running, no browser activity (other than the testing), etc. Additionally, no other computer on your network (if any) should be using the connection. When you select a testing mirror, use the ones that are geographically closest to you.

Your particular router has bad networking capabilities for BitTorrent...it doesn't handle lots of connections at once nicely...UNLESS it's using a good 3rd party firmware!

Figure out the differences between your computer and your dad's.

NOD32 may be interfering.

Yours might not be port forwarded properly. (They can't both use the same port!)

There may be other networking software (or bad networking card/drivers) to blame...
