Kenobi5000 Posted January 27, 2006 Report Share Posted January 27, 2006 Hey! I've been hearing good things about µTorrent, so I decided I'd take a vacation from BitComet to check it out. When I was reading the Mini-Guide to help get the best possible speed though, it said that unless I saw "Network OK" down in the status bar, I wouldn't get good speeds. Lo and behold, it's true. Now, just to make sure I get this right, I'm going to go down through the list of questions exactly as it appeared.● I'm not getting the "Network OK" message, but I am getting the following: UPnP(32460), DHT: 176 peers (Updating), D: 0.1 kB/s (total 87.2 kB), U: 0.0 kB/s (total 70.8 kB). Note that the number of peers changes every once in a while, getting as high as 235 for example, and that the download might also be at 0.0, as it is right now. There is no "NAT Error" message.● Cable network (Wall>Cable Modem>Router>Computer). Note that the router, a new Belkin Pre-N, is wireless, but also has four ethernet ports for wired connections, which is what's used. As for the speed, here's handy little clipping::::.. Upload Stats ..:::Connection is:: 334 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 579 kB)Upload Speed is:: 41 kB/sTested From:: http://testmy.net (server1)Test Time:: Thu Jan 26 18:32:45 PST 2006 Bottom Line:: 6X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 24.98 secDiagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 36.33 % faster than the average for host (mindspring.com) Validation Link:: http://testmy.net/stats/id-T841LZSIE● Windows XP. The router's firmware version is 1.01.03.● The router has a firewall and I'm using ZoneAlarm. Oh, and I like to have PeerGuardian 2 on, but I'm not married to it (or ZoneAlarm, for the matter).● Yes, according to the test site µTorrent sent me to, port forwarding is set up correctly.● I haven't seen my ISP (Earthlink, in San Diego, CA to be precise) on any bad lists.I'm happy to hear any suggestions you all may have! Thanks!P.S. In your opinion, is it better or worse to be pingable, and if so, should only the router be pingable or should each computer be pingable?
