Erratic upload speeds


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

Downloading works fine for me.

But my upload speeds are erratically all over the place, and usually have been in the last year. This is making a lesser experience for the community! :(


Should I expect to have an even line?

PS I've done all the port forwarding, speed tests, enable plug 'n' play, and I'm wired directly into my router.

Switeck, thanks, sorry I forgot to post those (DUH!).

Upload limit: 220.0 kB/s

Connections: 90

Max active: 3

Upload slots: 4

Connections (global): 250

Max Active downloads: 3

bt.prio_first_last_piece = *true

By the way, www.speedtest.net shows this>>>>

Average Download Speed: 8.73 Mb/s

Average Upload Speed: 1.81 Mb/s

Note: The Setup Guide page always shows Current Port: 64148. Strangely, I had forwarded 64147 in my router (uTorrent Preferences>Connections does list it as 64147).

Thanks again!

Port 64147/64148 issues could be due to UPnP/NAT-PMP conflicts. Did you do manual port forwarding?

Your upload speed max seems pretty close to your speed test upload speed result -- there may be burst issues while downloading, as downloading creates LARGE upload overheads as well.

If you have poor networking (weak router, bad software firewall) then lowering bt.connect_speed and net.max_halfopen might help. Also disabling stuff like UPnP, Resolve IPs, and even uTP and Teredo/IPv6 might help. 1st link in my signature talks about that.
