    This is my first time on this forum and would like to say hello to everyone before i post my problem.

    Right, I recently moved property and signed up for BTInternet with 8mb line. Once i installed it and tested my speeds i could get i reach on average about 500k-800k per second on decent sites and even on bit-torrent.

    Then after a bit the speeds dropped on bit-torrent even tho the sources i was using i should easily hit my average speeds i mentioned above but it was always around 5-10k and never goes above that what ever torrent i try to use, but downloading of http sites the speeds was ok 500k-800k.

    Lately my motherboard broke so i had it replaced so i did a fresh install of windows and thought that my problem with torrents would change but they are going slow no matter which one i try.

    Has anyone experienced this with BT? i used to be with nildram and never had a problem like this before?

    Note:

    I am famililar with port forwarding and all ports are setup correctly, i have even tested it with no router (BT Home Hub) and trying with just a Adsl modem without firewalls etc running and still no change. Also all speed settings are set to what azureus recommends for my line speed.

    If anyone could help me i would appreiciate it or give me some guides on what to do as this is really frustrating me.

    Thanks

    In Azureus, enable Protocol Encryption: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/395674 disable UPnP: http://www.azureuswiki.com/index.php/UPnP and set a port over 50,000. I also saw this posted by BluRay: "I would like you to try out this torrent and see what kind of a connection you get on it, go and get it here I would like you to try out this torrent and see what kind of a connection you get on it, go and get it here http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/ download the torrent, run it for a minumum of 30 minutes, and check whether you get good results, check in regular intervals like 10 minutes or something, don't be silly and check every 10 seconds.
    If you get a good result then the connection is configured right, and it is just your torrents that are bad, but there is always a chance for flaws. download the torrent, run it for a minumum of 30 minutes, and check whether you get good results, check in regular intervals like 10 minutes or something, don't be silly and check every 10 seconds.
