Scanton, 10 Mbps = 1000 Kbps x 10, that's 10,000 Kbps. Unless you are paying a lot of money for a custom line, that's too fast for a regular able Internet Connection. But you are right about the KB/s rate formula, 10,000 Kbps divided by 8 (Bytes) would get you a KB/s rate. I have 400 Kbps upload speed (50 KB/s) and 4000 Kbps download speed (500 KB/s). This is almost as good as it gets for a standard cable account. There might be a higher speed account I can pay extra for, but I don't think 10 Mbps is it, maybe 5.. I'll never ever get my max download speed. I got a wonderful 1.5 Mbps yesterday with an old sci-fi movie. (er.. legal non-copyrighted). It is funny because there were only 4 seeds and 19 peers. Strange how different trackers are so different in speed. Run a few tests here to see your up and down speed: http://www.dslreports.com/stest/0 Try to find a place close to you. DSL speed is steady all of the time, cable users will fluctuate perhaps, because they have to share the bandwidth. Just to point out - since everyone has low upload speeds, we are all restricted in download speed. But Torrent programs are clever and they know how to divide up a torrent and we all get a piece we share, then our download speed is really just combinations and are adding together of others upload speeds. But they are dicing up their upload speed too to several people, so it is really adding up of a lot of little speeds of pieces of uploads. This is why you must use your upload bandwidth and share or else your download speed will be hurting (it was written that way - no leeches like on other p2p programs). Don't forget - don't use the default "automatic" setting for max upload speed in BitTornado. set it to either slow or fast DSL/Cable, then once that is done a number will appear, and adjust it to be 75% - 80% of your real upload speed you know you have. Set it too high here and you'll suffer just as if you set it too low. What Properties tab are you clicking on?
