Horribly slow upload speed only with uTorrent please help


Recommended Posts

Okay where should i start, i was using BitComet before and it was downloading and uploading without problems my max upload speed is around 80 kB/s and when i start BitComet it starts uploading 80 kB/s almost right from the start.

But since i cant use bitcomet with alot of private trackers i needed to use uTorrent, the download speed i get with uTorrent is LOTS of faster then with BitComet like 600 to 1mb or higher, but im having so much trouble with uploading, i always have torrents with lots of seeds and peers like i said the download speed is good but the uploads wont go higher then 1 to 4 kB/s or so, the highest i got was like 10 kB/s and i had to let uTorrent on the whole day for that and eventually dropped to 4 to 1 kB/s again.

the ports are forwarded and i dont think i have any setting wrong i read alot of posts here regarding low upload speeds and tried most of the tips that i read, but realy NOTHING worked.

i even gave up on utorrent with uploading and downloaded Vuze but it makes my pc SO slow when running, i realy want to use uTorrent so bad, but right now using uTorrent only gives me a very bad share rate at private trackers.

please help me i dont have any clue what to do, if more info is need please tell me what you need to know.

Peer Exchange is very useful on public torrents and doesn't require/make additional connections like DHT and LPD do.

Does the torrents you're on have peers interested in downloading from you?

Does the very low upload persist even in seed-only mode? (by using Scheduler's seed-only mode)

Unless you're experiencing Disk Overload in uTorrent (which should appear at bottom left corner of uTorrent's window if it's happening), there are only 2 possibilities I deem likely with such poor results:

1.Your ISP is throttling BitTorrent uploads (and probably downloads too)

2.Your computer and/or networking is seriously screwed up. Anything change (however trivial) in the last month? Virus/Trojan/Malware, bad drivers, bad software firewalls, file/media indexers, antivirus file scanners...ANY of those could be causing the problem. :(

I doubt you have a loose network cable, but it's remotely possible your modem, router, or network card is overheating and slowing way down.

If you are using private tracker's you need to change these setting

Enable DHT Network - No

Enable DHT for new torrents - No

Enable Local Peer Discovery - No

Ask tracker for scrape information - Yes

Enable Peer Exchange - No

Limit local peer bandwidth - No

Dont think it will help your speed problem though
