uTorrent (itself) drags down speed


Recommended Posts

As my download speed in uTorrent goes above 500kb/s, my internet connection slows down dramatically. I have a ping command open, and I can see the ping rising from ~25ms at 500kb/s to over 3200ms when uTorrent reaches 1200kb/s. I tried downloading the same torrent with Bit Comet, and I reached 1300kb/s without the ping going above 35ms.

Here's my uTorrent settings (sorry, I am not sure what settings I should post):

50kp/s cap on upload (tried reducing this to 1kb/s, but it only provided marginal help)

unlimited download

49519 listening port (I am sure it is forwarded properly)

DHT - enabled

Local Peer Discovery - enabled

NAT-PMP port mapping - enabled

Global max number of connections - 2000 (I tried lowering this to 100, but it was of no help)

Max number of connected peers per torrent - 500

I tested my connection with Glasnost and it said everything was fine.

Thanks a lot! :D

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

Keep Peer Exchange enabled...it won't be used on private tracker torrents anyway.

You might also need/want to disable Teredo and uTP connections as well.
