does closing Utorrent affect dl speed?


Recommended Posts

wondering if after I choose a torrent to dl. should I close that web site or should I leave it open on the task bar pertaining to affecting my dl speed.

also, does keeping your upload speed at highest rate,[mine would be approx 72kb's] affect dl speed or should I lower it to get a faster dl..

A "static" website that's not constantly accessing your computer is perfectly fine to leave open.

Most are static...fortunately.

Upload speed max set too close to max will decrease download speed a little to a lot.

But uploading at 60-70 KB/sec will probably have not reduce download speed.

Uploading slower will mean fewer peers are willing to return the favor!

2nd link in my signature for matching settings to upload speeds.
