Download speed was 400-500, now 50-100


Recommended Posts

Last week I was downloading torrents at 400-500+.Last night I started a torrent download and it wint go much over 100, mostly in the 50 range.

I had not touched any settings.

I ran Speedguide's TCP optimiser this morning and nothing.

I'm on Time Warner cablein Burbank and speed test shows:

3971 kbps down (~3.97 Mbps, 485 KB/s) ↓

354 kbps up (~0.35 Mbps, 43 KB/s) ↑


3072 KB downloaded in 6.338 seconds

1024 KB uploaded in 23.691 seconds

Speed @ 83% of the average for gldl.ca.charter.com

75 times faster than 56k dialup

Could this: Provider: gldl.ca.charter.com

have anything to do with it?

I pay my bill to Time Warner

Your problem could be caused by 1 or more of these:

ISP throttling, peer/seed conditions got worse because a really fast one disconnected from you, minor networking overloads, internet virus/worm (or really any other program) became active on your computer and is "eating up" bandwidth so uTorrent doesn't get it...

That is why I suggested what I did.
