I've been a utorrent user for a long time until a few days ago. My avg firewall downloaded a driver update and ever since I've been getting tracker offline errors like crazy. It usually works fine for a couple hours or more if I'm lucky and then the status turns red and I get the "tracker offline" error. I once had a few torrents dl'ing from different trackers and it happened on all of them. I decided to try Azureus hoping the problem will not reappear with a different application. So far it hasn't. However, the download/upload rates are much higher than ever before. Utorrent gave me a max dl rate of around 600 kB/s and a max upload of around 60 k/Bs. Azureus is doing max download rate 750 kB/s and max upload of 120 kB/s. This can't be right, can it? I downloading a torrent that's 49 gigs and I've downloaded 14 gigs in a little over 4 hours. It seems to good to be true. I don't have T1 or anything special like that. Just a cable modem. I don't even have any ports fowarded.
