    Hi, I'm sure this has been asked tons already but I'm just going to give my specs in hope that someone can tell me if i'm getting the max outta my torrent experience. My dsl service is advertised at a speed of 2.5 mbps (Bellsouth) I understand about overhead and what not, but what should my average speed be when downloading via torrent? Lets say if the torrent has 5 seeds and 27 peers (what i'm downloading right now), thanks for the help

    It all depends on your upload speed and how many peers and otehr stuff. I have a 2 Mbit/s connection (Shaw), and I usualyl set my upoad to 20 kilobytes a second. Sometiems i onyl get like 6 kb/s and sometimes i get 300 kb/s.

    I think I have it set to 8. By teh way, I use Azureus, which in my opinion is the best there is.
