Arijeet77 Posted September 29, 2014 Report Share Posted September 29, 2014 I have a 640 kbps connections shared over WiFi with 2 of my friends. My ISP (local peering : 5 mbps) gives good local peering. With local peering, I get around 700 kB/s speed in my torrents. However, for the past few weeks, I have been facing a speed issue. Whenever I download a torrent which I know has local peering, the speeds i get are around 650-700 kB/s. However, after sometime, I find that the speed has fallen down to around 80 kB/s (640 kbps/8 = 80 kB/s). What's annoying is that, once i stop and restart the torrent, I again get good speeds around 700 kB/s. This problem keeps repeting with almost all of my torrents(with local peering). So I have to keep restating them after every few minutes. So the following possibilities may be the cause : 1. Simultaneous downloading by my friends limits the local peering speed I get. Fluctuation occurs even when I am downloading alone(with no other friend connected to the WiFi). 2. Problem with my ISP which limits local peering in selective torrents. My friend (who uses Vuze) gets a stable 650-700 kB/s when he downloads locally peered torrents alone(same torrents that I get fluctuating speeds with). 3. A bug in utorrent. Maybe some setting that interferes with local peering. So the question is : WHICH ONE????I have already stated my logic to rule out the first 2 possobilities.Kindly help me out as I am tired of restarting my torrents every now and then to constantly receive the 700 kB/s local peering speed.
