ok, I am kinda new at torrents and stuff, I am not completely sure how they work. But I have an idea. I am realy frustrated about this.. ok first off. I have NO firewall. NO router. NO anti virus software. And I do have 512kbps DSL Internet speed. With AOL. I am downloaded a game, I downloaded the torrent file and it started downloading the game at a wopping 800kbps, it gradualy went u to that. Then when it got to around 33% done, it put the brakes on. And it started going around.. 30-50kbps. Sometimes slipping down to the 20's. I am using Bit Tornado. At this point in time it is downloading at around.. 0 - 2 kbps And uploading 11kbps. I will tell you the information I can see.. Connected to 10 peers .. ( total speed 12 - 16kbps ) Connected to 1 seeds also seeing 0.929 distibuted copies. wtf does that mean? The download is 92.9% completed. Why is it slowing down so much NOW. I have the greenlight. As I said.. no firewall bla bla bla.. I have my bit torrent settings on dsl/cable fast with my upload rate at 100kbps and max uploads at 30. Yet the upload is going at 0kbps. And my download is now going at 1kbps. But not for long, it will go back to 0. I dont get this.. for what was estimated to be 7 hours, is now going to be another 24 hours. I started downloading it yesterday morning at 8am. How the Hell do I speed it up. I no there are 100 threads like this but none of them really make sense to me, so I thought I would make my own. If u cant tell me how to speed it up, can U tell me what settings I should have it on? and explain the way bit torrents work.. like seeds an stuff. Thx alot.
