Ripebear Posted July 24, 2009 Report Share Posted July 24, 2009 Hello, i'm new to these forums but been using torrent clients for a while, deciding to stick with Utorrent since these forums seem active and helpful.At this present time i'm getting about 30 kb/s max download speed on Utorrent, I have tried popular files which should download far more on my connection.I have looked through, and done most of the tweaks and done all the basic setup, only thing I could not find was # Try disabling IP resolving in the Peers tab's context menuI also didn't yet Try patching TCPIP.sys, mainly because it said it was a last resort, will do it if anyone thinks it will help, here is what information I can provide at this time.I did: # Try lowering net.max_halfopen to 4 or lower (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced) (chose 4)# Try lowering bt.connect_speed to 10 or lower (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced) (Chose 10)# Try disabling DHT (Can be found in Preferences > BitTorrent)# Try disabling UPnP and NAT-PMP (Can be found in Preferences > Connection)# Try disabling peer.resolve_country if it isn't already set to false (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)# Try lowering maximum global number of connections to 200? 100? 50? Lower? (Can be found in Preferences > Bandwidth)# Try disabling uTP (set Preferences > Advanced > bt.transp_disposition to 5 for µTorrent v1.8.3 and above, or set it to 0 for µTorrent v1.8.2 and below)I have forward ports, at this moment im on 6882 my connection is 8MB/S but where I live I get around 4, upload speed of around 350.I have a green network light on Utorrent, also did these and tested the openoffice.# Try enabling Protocol Encryption? (Can be found in Preferences > BitTorrent)# Made sure peer.lazy_bitfield is enabled? (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)# Test your connection with Glasnost to make sure your ISP isn't throttling BitTorrent (and check this thread for a compiled list of ISPs known to throttle)Seemed openoffice was at 30KB/S as well.On speed guide I have upload limit at 32KB/s, Upload slots 6connections (per torrent) 200, (global) 200Max active torrents 6, Max active downloads 5Current port [0: Auto] 6882 (tested and is working properly)System is windows XP, SP3I have windows firewall on, with the ports adding into exceptions there too, Antivirus software is AVG FreeConnected through BT Home hub (Older white model), also have a router connected to it, Belkin one but I doubt it is affecting since I have my PC connected directly into the Hub.ISP = BT Total BroadbandUsing a cable connection, after several tests I average about 4.4MB/S and 360 Upload.I know BT are known to throttle but not at this time of day usually? I thought it usually started about 5PM GMT and until about 12, I will keep downloads active to make sure. (Did test but everything seemed OK, although the resulted download and upload speeds from the throttle test seemed kind of low)Thanks for any help, any other information needed feel free to ask, i'll be keeping an eye on this post.Luke Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
