I wonder what could be the problem if my overhead get too high (>60kBs - half of my upload speed)

And your download speed at that time is?

40kBs... I'm thinking its because I was downloading at 1mB/s

Exactly. You should consider 3-5% of your download speed as a reasonable addition to your upload overhead.

Was just wondering if this has been updated for the current stable version 3.2? I ask because I always refer to your guide when I do an upgrade. :)

Sure that's the right way around? Down capability is usually higher than the up capability. Also your 3.5 mbps that your ISP tells you, is a MAXIMUM that you can get UP TO, NOT the actual rate of transfer that you WILL get. There maybe up to fifty other people using that same 3.5mbps line, called a "contention ratio". you all cannot have 3.5mbps at the same time.

make sure you do not limit the UPLOAD speed of that .torrent as well as dont use internet for anything else... then check the speed again

You are never going to get to what speed your line is capable of or rated at using ADSL/DSL, My connection is rated at 16mbps down 1.2mbps up but the maximum transfer I can get is 7.5 mbps down 0.74 mbps up (UK to UK nodes)

Are you testing the transfer speed with local nodes or remote nodes? As a remote node test will be MUCH lower than local node tests are.

Well, this is your problem (or your ISPs...). You can both get full rate as long as your upload max is 5-7% of your download. Tghat is - with a well seeded torrent, and correct settings.

And, help (or settings file) is (are) in my first post... Test with a ubuntu torrent.

Because it might need manual adjustments per your connection's properties as well.... there is no magic there.

If you didn't get top speed with ubuntu torrent , look for reasons outside uTorrent...

to 26,which is 6% of max down speed

You'd better re-read my guide, than... I'm out of here. goto the troubleshooting/speed issues sections of the forum.

See para. B for Important notice:

It seems that there is an issue with upload limiter with high-speed connections (upload speeds > 500KB/s) . uTorrent upload limiter fails to limit uTP connections correctly! It seems to limit them to about ~500K :( . So, unless you want to just not use the limiter for uTP (un-check/disable "Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to uTP connections" ) or just not use uTP (un-check BitTorrent->Enable bandwidth management) here is a tip how to overcome this:

* Set any download limit you want * ! Strangely, this seems to help bypass the upload limiter issue :P

Remember: this is ONLY for very high speed UPLOAD rates! and for the time being, till they'll fix the upload limiter
