Upload speed killing my download speed?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I am trying to dl this one torrent and I keep seeing this and just simple cannot understand it.

there are currently 464 seeds of which i am only connected to 10 and 2466 peers of which i am only connected to 56 and I am getting dl speeds of 10 to 15 kbs. this does not make any since to me. why will it not connect to more?

I have seen people post stuff similar to this and not really seen the answer. i have read all the guides and post and etc about how to get the most out of your dl speeds. I have followed all of them. is there some internal programing inside of utorrent that limits how many seeds or peers per torrent you can connect to?

Ok I have read a few places that if your upload speed is to high that it will kill your download speed. My understanding is that the upload eats your bandwidth up. Correct me if I am wrong here.

so I have been struggling with my downloads getting good speeds. I have tweeked and tested everything I could, followed every guide I could find or read. I have even thought about changing torrent clients. Instead I decided to vary from the guides a bit and start working on one thing at a time seeing if I could tweek something and have a good result.

so I dropped my upload from 25kbs up to 10kbs and with in seconds my downloads started getting faster and faster till it almost doubled what I was downloading at.

so is it possible that my isp has so much bandwidth for the upload but no so much for the download like an inverse ratio or something? and since i was eating up so much for my up that it was killing my down?

Ok so some times the seeds and peers things mystifies me...I am connected to 15 of 6,122 seeds and 28 of 20,642 peers and am bouncing from 30 to 60 kbs...wtf!

I have used utorrent for a long time with cable and never had issues until i switched to dsl...now I can not seem to connect to as many seeds and peers that are available.

Settings for utorrent are right in line with where they should be with the exception of my upload as the higher the upload speed i set the slower my dl become.

I see lots of people complaining about not being able to connect to seeds and peers...is there a new bug or something with utorrent?

well the two speed test I just ran had me dl at about 4.5 to 5ish megs...uploads were about 500 to 600ish. so I do not think that quailifies as slow but hey when I see people getting 20megs and up now I feel slow...lol!

and fyi before you say check my sig witch i have noticed you say alot might want to maybe come up with a new canned response cause I have checked your sig and tried those diff things and got slower speeds not faster...

yes last year I was running cable on a build of xp pro, this year when I moved and got dsl here I did a complete new install of xp pro and moved from sp2 to sp3 with all the latest updates and drivers. so when I dl utorrent and set it up for dsl at the speeds I am running now...

Step 1

Went to dslreports and ran several speed test I run about 4.3megs or higher consistantly for dl speeds and 600Kbs for upload speeds or higher.

<a href="http://speedtest.dslreports.com"><img border=0 src="http://www.dslreports.com/im/80920910/8159.png"></a>

Based on that I tried the preconfigured settings in utorrent and the conservitived ones as well. Both caused slow dl speeds.

I set up portforwarding on my router did the test on utorrent to make sure it was open and it was. since then I have changed the port a few times and deleted and recreated the rule.

Using Utorrent 1.8.4 which is the latest stable version.

Restart µTorrent, your computer, modem, and/or router after performing any of the suggestions below

Did the above many times makes no connection speed changes...

Try using Switeck's conservative settings

Did this and my DL slowed down.

Try disabling DHT (Can be found in Preferences > BitTorrent)

Did this and things really slowed down

Try disabling UPnP and NAT-PMP (Can be found in Preferences > Connection)

Did this with no change

Try lowering maximum global number of connections to 200? 100? 50? Lower? (Can be found in Preferences > Bandwidth)

Did this and things slowed way down

Connect your computer directly to the modem to make sure the problem is not caused by the router

Did this no change

Things I have not tried yet..

Try lowering net.max_halfopen to 4 or lower (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)

Try lowering bt.connect_speed to 10 or lower (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)

Try disabling IP resolving in the Peers tab's context menu

Try disabling peer.resolve_country if it isn't already set to false (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)

Try disabling uTP? (Set Preferences > Advanced > bt.transp_disposition to 5)

Status is always green btw...

Tried dl open office torrent.

7 of 13 seeds connected 0 of 8 peers connected with a avg dl speed of 150 to 170kbs...

was not a very fast dl

Try enabling Protocol Encryption? (Can be found in Preferences > BitTorrent)

Did this 0 change

Have not tried these yet.

Try various uTP settings? (Set Preferences > Advanced > bt.transp_disposition to 15 to enable, 10 to force, 5 to disable)

Made sure peer.lazy_bitfield is enabled? (Can be found in Preferences > Advanced)

Did the glasnost and

What per-torrent and global connection limits did you use?

Tried dl open office torrent.

7 of 13 seeds connected 0 of 8 peers connected with a avg dl speed of 150 to 170kbs...

was not a very fast dl

If you used the current windows english installer download and got those speeds on your line, chances are, either you have a download speed limit set somewhere or your ISP IS interfering.

no download speed limited anywhere from my dsl modem or my router...and I did that glasnot thing and it said that my isp was not limiting anything...

next theroy?

just curious here but is it not possible that there could be a problem with utorrent? just for even a second did you think about that?

I keep trying here and keep working but I still can not seem to over come this speed issue.

I have posted before about all I have done and tried.

I know disabled ipv6 and QoS and did the ip bind in utorrent as well...still no change

I have ran the glasnote thing and it says I am good as far as my isp goes...

so lets see things it is not so far

1. not isp

2. not dsl modem

3. not router

4. not computer

5. not OS

so let me think...seems like maybe just maybe it might be something in utorrent keeping me from connecting to seeds and peers? or is there something else I could try?
