i used to get great speeds.


Recommended Posts


for a long time i got really good speeds from utorrent (avg about 800kb/s for a popular torrent), now not so much.

the only thing i can think of that caused this was updating to V1.85. after i updated i seemed to get a very small amount of seeds(9) even when there are over 500. i know that seeds don't guarantee good speed, but i used to get about 50-100 per torrent when i had my good speeds.

I tried for hours and hours to fix it by reading other peoples problems and last night spent a good few hours on the portforward website following every detail, however the end result was utorrent being the only program that could access the internet! plus the speeds weren't even better!

i had to do a system restore to get rid of all the work that i did, and that worked.

but im back where i started. unstable speeds and few seeds.

id like to note:

port test passed

test indicated that my ISP Is Not throttling my connection

I use windows firewall

I use windows vista.

Sorry for the huge post, i just want it to work how it used to.

Thanks a lot for any help!

Do note that certain times of day, everything may be throttled equally by some ISPs...thus Glasnost doesn't report BitTorrent as messed up relative to regular web surfing.

Encryption-wise, you might get better results doing this:


or this:


(NOTE: Those settings were a special case for a wireless ISP, so understand them before you try them!)
