creedo Posted August 23, 2010 Report Share Posted August 23, 2010 I know this is a common question and I've done some searching, and played with all the appropriate settings. I read http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992and played with stuff like tcp ratecontrol, lazyfield, half open connections, etc etc.Every time I start a torrent, I spike to 2.2ish megabytes (2,200 KB/s) within seconds.I only can keep that speed for a few seconds then it drops to almost EXACTLY 1 megabyte (1000 KB/s)and stays there. At any time I can stop, restart, and it will do the exact same process.Speedtest.net using the nearest server reports my connection as 20 megabit down/3 megabit up.I can see my ISP (Comcast) throttles but I'm curious if 1 MB is a comcast speed cap or something else.Any other comcast people see exactly 1,000 KB/s? Glasnost reports no download throttling butI understand the test isn't perfect. Also if I DL a large test file (not torrent just http),I never see more than 1100 KB/s.1000 KB/s is pretty fast so I'm not unhappy really, just curious what's happening. I also want to know if there's a workaround, enabling encryption is not working.Other info:I'm using utorrent recommended settings, except for the recommended changes in the link above.Using a surfboard cable modem, no router. Decently fast Windows 7 machine with nothing else running,no firewall etc. Could the 2.2 megabyte number I see briefly just be wrong, or something the NIC can't handle?
