    Hi

    I am currently using 512kbps boardband connected to the ADSL router. Of course I disactivate my other computers. But the download speed is very slow up to 2kbps and I don't know why. Is anyone can help to increase my download speed?

    Thank in advance

    Erm my computer is connected to ADSL - (DL-G604T) and Im currently using Azureus. I have configured my firewall and router to allow data transfer on 6881 port. I was expecting to see green face and my download speed increased about 200kps but i still get the face faces hence NAT problem and the download speed is the same

    Thats bad. Yes

    ports 6881-6889 fowarded?

    firewalls configured?

    how many seeds does the torrent file have?

    p.s try using bit-tornado.

    like this:

    6881-6881 tcp
    6882-6882 tcp

    through to 6889

    simple!

    Hi

    So far I have managed to get green face but the download speed is very low which doesn't exceeds 5kbps. Am i right that there are too many people are downloading because of peer - 67(103)? I assume that there are 9 or 13 computer have already downloaded the film. Please correct me if Im mistaken about peer and seed?

    I read some posts that people can download up to 200kbps and I would have that. Any suggestion?

    in azureus it will say:

    seeds -

    Peers -

    the information will be under the headers, let us know how many seeds their are.

    and neewbie is right in what he first asked, have you got service pack 2 installed?

    have you got windows firewall activated?

    right, first step.

    disable windows firewall & go into services and disable security center - their sh*t.

    second step, go here http://lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=downloads
    and download the patcher for SP2.

    third step - this patcher will change the amount of half open connections your computer (SP2) uses to download from P2P appz, because microsoft have limited it to ten, therefore terrible speeds. don't worry ive used it - and so have many people, its clean.

    fourth step, report back and let us know if you have succeded in getting good speeds

    I have installed it and the window box says that:

    files are required for windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. to maintain system stability, windows must restore the orignial versions of these files

    Should I click cancel?

    So far I have followed your instruction:

    Disabled window firewall

    Downloaded the file as you gave me the link

    Executed the software

    Clicked the cancel button in order to avoid to reinstall the Window XP SP2 to get stability

    RESULT: No significant effect

    Maybe I have missed something out.

    Plz advise me

    about going into services?

    hit start > run > type services.msc > find security center > disable it

    hmmm, nothing has improved? what internet connection do you have? is this at home? or are you at uni? do you have a proxy installed?

    I have disabled the security center as you requested.

    Im using Tiscali 512kbps broadband at home.

    I do not know anything about proxy so can you please advise me to follow your procedure?

    No improvement :-(

    ok, do something for me will you?

    goto http://www.dslreports.com/stest

    and post the results of your speed test - this will tell us whether your internet is just slow, or your P2P is slow.

    PS:

    a proxy is a piece of software which connects your computer through another server (ip address) so it helps with anonymous activitys.
