Setup Guide (mac) for newbie?


Recommended Posts


I am brand new to the world of uTorrent and have just downloaded Version 1.8.4 (29971). I found the Beginner's Guide at http://www.utorrent.com/help/guides/connection-setup, but it's for windows. Is there one for Mac OS X v. 10.6.8?

I downloaded some files from EZTV.it already, that was fun :D However, as I said, I am brand new to this and want to be sure I properly set everything up.

Thank you!!

Test your speed with speedtest.net use the charts for the initial settings

Results of 2 speed tests:

Download 3.01 Mb/s 15.04 Mb/s

Upload 0.05 Mb/s .42 Mb/s

Latency 1477 ms 636 ms

I don't know what to do with this information. I looked at the charts, but I'm still not sure.

There appear to be many things to set/configure within Preferences, is that documented anywhere? uTorrent for dummies? :lol:

Thank you !!

It's for the Windows client but the names of the elements are the same, and based on upload of 0.42mbps, the settings for your client should be the in the 256 kbps to 384 kbps range.

These setting are NOT an exact science, it is a guide and you should determine what is optimum for your set up empirically.
