Bringing Mah n00b Game

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am a n00b to running any bitTorrent programs whatsoever, and would like the, as you say, "low-down" or the "4-1-1". Haven't downloaded it yet, hoping for some Sid Meier's Civilizations V action, but alas, I have no money. Learning bitTorrent sounds very inexpensive indeed, and so, here I am. Anyone here like to lend a seedy, leech-filled hand?

You seem to be on ComCast Cable ISP in the USA, so you probably WON'T be able to upload sustained nearly as fast as reported by speed tests...since they use short-term speed bursts to "fool" the speed tests. Best bet is you have 1 megabit/second upload speed sustained max.

So for uTorrent settings, 2nd link in my signature 1 mbit/sec upload settings.

So I've had no trouble with my first download, but as I use uTorrent more, the download speed gets worse exponentially. I downloaded some albums from Kick Ass Torrents, and the third download has taken at least an hour. It was a file about 45 MB in size, and I began this download yesterday, so could it perhaps be that it only downloads while uTorrent is open? The torrent is only at 48% so far. What is this treachery? I was so happy when I downloaded that Office one...
