Was download at >500 kBps then dropped to <50


Recommended Posts

I was downloading a torrent at approx. that speed consistantly until I changed my settings to the recommended ones in the guide.

My information:

PC and other Specs:

-Intel Core Duo P7350 2.0GHz


-Vista Home Premium 64-bit

-AVG antivirus


Downloading Info:

General advice configured from the guide: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992

-Shaw Highspeed Internet

-Wireless Connection

-Recommended settings for the 800kbps range on this guide: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=58404

-Netmaxhalf open set to 3

-Btconnect speed set to 10

The average speed I got from downloading open office was around 700 kBps and maxed at 1330 kBps a couple of times. There`s at least 10 seeds in the torrent that I`m downloading so shouldn't that provide me with enough sources to help keep a fair speed at around 200 kBps? I kind of forgot how the whole thing about seeds and peers thing affects the speed so maybe I'm missing something here?
