Not connecting to Peers


Recommended Posts

Ok so my download speed is not affected by this and I can still download at 200kb/s plus constantly. But it seems for example out of 70 peers, the most I can connect to is about 2.. 2(70).

Since this is happening I cant even break 1kb/s of upload speed.

My router is a Siemens Gigaset SE587.

Only problem I have noticed is that I have a yellow triangle at the bottom which says "No incoming connections"

I'm pretty sure Tiscali ADSL ISP in the UK severely disrupts and throttles BitTorrent traffic, which would explain what you're seeing. Previous examples:




Being firewalled (yellow light) can make that worse. These websites might help you with port forwarding:

Yeah Tiscali are seriously bad. I'll try your suggestions and get back

EDIT: I must add I didnt have this problem with my wired connection with Tiscali so I have a feeling its something to do with the router.

And also its only with my peers. Connecting to seeders is just fine
