    thats because your internet speed is being eaten up by the uploads

    get NetLimiter (google it) and set the upload speed for azureus whatever you want

    when you upload, it takes away some of your download speed as well.

    set your upload at 1 kb and dont set your download at anything (untick it) and see what happens...

    thats because certain people have 'rules' on their clients Eg: if someone is only uploading at a maximum of 5 then they get slow speed, etc etc.

    hmm, also - in the 'tracker status' column, what does it say?

    what colour are the smiley faces next to your torrents?

    and thirdly - what port are you using?

    I know that may uploud should be set high but when I set it higher my download also stayed at 20 but upload was at a constant 40 so I used netlimiter to slow down the upload a little. I have it set at max 25 ,now my download whent up to 30 but it won't go any faster. both faces are green tracker is ok the file has 140 seeders and 43 leechers the port I'm using is 6881 .

    ahh that may be it.

    some ISPs are limiting the BW on those portz, plus some trackers are blocking those ports, its a common P2P port... try 6989, see if that works - without netlimiter.

    Whatever you do, don’t use any of the following ports for torrents, ISP's are getting smarter and restricting bandwidth on these ports.

    Direct Connect 411 - 413
    Kazaa 1214
    eDonkey 4662
    Gnutella 6346 - 6347
    WinMX 6699
    BitTorrent 6881 - 6889

    I recommend using a group of approx 10 ports (ish, one for each torrent) in the range 49152 through 65535, don’t forget your port forwarding (if you have a router) else torrent tracker may well reject your connection request. Some will also block you if you are using ports in the banned / restricted bandwidth range.

    Have fun

    :eek:)
