    hi.ive seen a lot of people saying how they get blazing downloads from doing router configurations etc and laugh at 10/kbs saying how annoyingly slow this is.i thought i had decent speeds until i saw all that which made me question my speeds.

    i generally get between 10 and 20/kbs speeds with some reaching 30/kbs or so.i usually download around 3 torrents at a time varying from 700mb to 2 or 3 gig.i have tried a few clients but am currently using bitlord.

    i have a 256k connection with a bt voyager 105 usb modem and use aol to connect (dont know if that matters).

    i generally use isohunt and torrentreactor to attain my torrents and usually use torrents with plenty of peers etc.

    am i getting a decent speed out of my torrents based on my connection etc or should i expect more?

    if i should be getting more,how do i configure or whatever to get more out of my downloads?

    i am using Windows ME and avst home edition anti virus and McAfee antivirus software.dont know if either use firewall etc.

    oh,BTW some d/l go under ten and some reach 1 or 2 for a long time before reaching ten again.cant really moan as they dont stay this low all through the download but they do for a long time.

    you mean your using two antivirus software's at the same time? thats very bad - does your system seem slow?
    plus with two, they are conflicting each other - if you did get a virus, they wouldn't see it - only have one AV running, but u need a firewall!

    and yes - 20 is about the max for a 256 connection, usually 25 at the very very max.
