JakeCourtney Posted June 25, 2006 Report Share Posted June 25, 2006 I'm in need of some help or at least some explaining of what's going on. I'll leave it up to you torrent experts whom have more expertise in the area. Let me describe the setup before I describe the problem.I'm running Windows XP SP2 ver: 5.1.2600. I've applied the TCP/IP fix, I believe it now allows 50 connections instead of 10. I've got wireless DSL connected to a Linksys Entherfast Cable/DSL Router Model # BEFSR41 V3 with Firmware Version: 1.05.03.I've no Firewall's installed and have disabled the default Windows firewall. I have access to my router so I can and have forwarded the proper ports. I've established a fixed IP and have port 51650 forwarded. I use that port for BitTorrents. uTorrents test indicates that the port is current open.I get a green light in uTorrent also.My internet connection is rated at 384/kbs. I average about 38k downloaded normal things off the net. I've tested my connection via Speed tests over the net, and I upload at 60k which is faster than I can even download.The problem is I get less then average results from torrents. I'll get speeds of like 2.0kB/s and be uploading at like 15kB/s. Most of the time it's downloading in the 1.5kB/s range, sometimes it will jump up to the 9.0kB/s range.This just doesn't seem right that I upload so fast, but my download speeds are horrid.I didn't know if there is a particular problem with my router. I've read that some are bad for torrents in general. I have had decent download rates in times past.Maybe you guy's could give me some suggestions or indications of what I'm doing wrong.If you need anymore information I'll be happy to follow up.Thanks,Jake Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
