Very slow speeds on newly setup dedicated torrent pc


Recommended Posts

I decided to dedicate my old laptop for downloading and seeding torrents. I was using my new(er) laptop for downloads, and it was working great (good download speeds) until the last couple of days so I'm assuming I can eliminate the router as the source of the problem.

On the dedicated torrent machine, I ran the setup guide and saved the recommended settings. I also read the complete setup guide online and made the recommended changes, including changes to my firewall. For the most part, I'm getting speeds of 25 kB/s or less. Sometimes it will shoot up to the mid-200s on certain torrents, but then it quickly tapers off to a few kB/s.

Here's everything I can think of that you may want to know...

PC: Compaq Presario R3000 laptop, AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (1.6GHz), 512MB RAM

OS: Windows XP (32) SP3

Firewall: Comodo 5.5.195786.1383

Router: Linksys WRT54G running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (05/21/09) vpn-small

ISP: Cox

uTorrent: 3.1.3

I also have BTGuard installed and running with the necessary proxy configuration.

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.
