Sinister32 Posted February 2, 2006 Report Share Posted February 2, 2006 long time lurker, first post...i recently switched from a 1.5/192 DSL connection with verizon to a 5/512 cable connection with atlantic broadband. Since then, i have not been able to squeeze acceptable speeds from any torrents. Ive gone through the speed guides, read every speed related post i could find here and elsewhere and still no luck.with the same torrents, using the same machine, and switching between the cable and dsl connections (before the dsl was turned off) i would see differences of 5-8k d/l with cable vs. 110+ on the dsl. Ports are definatley forwarded correctly and ive tried setting the machine to DMZ just in case. Ive tried 2 seperate routers, a SMC and a USR (the models numbers escape me atm, and im not at home to look) with the same results. cable modem is a motorola sb5120.my d/l comp is a 3gig p4 with a gig o ram with a fresh install of xp pro with sp1. all it does is browse the web and d/l, so i doubt there's a resource issue. Ive tried all the tweaks recommended by the tcp/ip optimizer with no luck. ive tried the auto settings for xxx/512 connections, no luck. and all the speed guide recommendations with no luck. all this leads me to believe im being throttled, however uploads seem fine (usually i have it capped at 47k u/l. on speed tests it normally maxes out at 58-ish) and i can hold a steady 400+k on the open office torrent (on the cable)any suggestions are appreciatededit: forgot to mention ive tried every version of 1.4 up to build 412 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
