browsing is slow or impossible when downloading


Recommended Posts


I am a bit of a newbie to uTorrent.

As it says in the thread subject I am experiencing that when downloading with uTorrent the general browsing is either very slow or impossible (page not responsive).

I have recently found a thread that suggests a few tweaks that could help, I have implemented them but have not given it enough time so don't know if they work.

The tweaks were;

Lowering net.max_halfopen to 4

bt.connect_speed to 4

disabling DHT

disabling UPnP

lowering the global maximum number of connections to 200? 100? 50? (I have chosen 50)

disabling UPnP and NAT-PMP

lowering the upload slots to 4¨

limiting the upload limit to 100 kB/s

enabling outgoing protocol encryption

I have set listening port to 6881 & have port forwarded this port

I have a fiber optic connection of 95 Mbps downloading and 60 Mbps uploading.
