SpeedTest with SpeakEasy and utorrent


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running Version 1.8.2 on Windows XP SP3 Professional.

I have been running utorrent for quite some time now, but have noticed that my normal web browsing has slowed. With utorrent up, I currently have it set to unlimited and getting the following speeds

DL:23.9kB/s UL: 214.5kB/s

When I go to SpeakEasy Speed Test website http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

and test with my closest server "Dallas, TX" I get the following DL while using Utorrent.

Last Result:

Download Speed: 1189 kbps (148.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 46 kbps (5.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

However when I right click on the "U" icon near the clock and "Pause All Torrents" I do another Speed Test and get the following results.

Last Result:

Download Speed: 5165 kbps (645.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 1835 kbps (229.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

My Math says that with Utorrent running 23.9kB/s and SpeakEasy at 148.6KB/S should equal 172.5kB/s, but when I turn of Utorrent, I get 645.6kB/s.

Where am I loosing 473.1kB/s when Utorrent is running?

I tweeked everything in this FAQ http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992

and something in that list worked, because I'm back to normal. Wonder if when I updated to 1.8.2 something happened with my settings?
