Varying Download Speeds


bgmnt

Recommended Posts

I get a torrent with a decent number of seeds and the download starts at around 30kb/s. From there it quickly goes to about 500kb/s jumping about 20kb/s a second. When it reaches around 500kb/s it starts going back down to 30kb/s and this happens over and over till the torrent finished download. Is this normal or is there something I can do to get consisten, fast, speeds? My router is configured properly and NAT checks out fine. I'm not using a standard torrent port (6881-6999) so it is not my ISP regulating traffic. I'm also on a 9mb cable line so I have the capacity to get good speeds.

Also, overloading your upload pipe can cause 'cyclic' speed gyrations in both upload AND download speeds.

Check µTorrent's speed graphs for upload AND download to see if there's a correlation.

Also run µTorrent's speed guide (CTRL+G) and have it test your speeds.
