    Once youve opened your ports,

    [bold]Speed is ultimately down to the number of seeders and peers[/bold]

    [bold]Then its down to your internet connection (dial up,1mb,2mb....)[/bold]

    Don't be discouraged when your in high 20s low 30s and have 10 seeders or less thats normal! its very rare that I get above 50KB/s with less than 10 seeders.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "I still get errors from tracker"

    [bold]Some of common errors people get from the Trackers[/bold]


    error 10061 problem connecting to tracker - This means that you cannot for whatever reason establish a connection to the tracker needed to download a file. This is commonly caused by routers, trackers being too busy, or your net connection going down.

    My download just sits at the “connecting to peers" status
    This means there are no peers to connect to, or your firewall/router is preventing a connection.

    error 10060 Connection timed out - dis means that you sent a request to a peer or tracker, and there was no response. Again this error generally sorts itself out given time, and can be caused by a busy tracker. If it doesn't carry on after a bit double check the torrent is seeded and the tracker is working

    Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')> - Just let the torrent run in your client and the client will keep checking the tracker and should resume eventually.

    I got stuck at 99% with several seeders - Try stopping the torrent and restarting from tracker :) that should work


    If anyone has any different errors post them and i'll try and work out what they mean, and how to solve them :)

    @ J-Kwon

    someone just gave me there end of subscribtion on newsgroup
    man that fast,maxing out at 120 constantly
    at about £50 yearly (on top of isp costs)

    this is what you need

    server from here

    www.100proofnews.com $8.95 a month,cheaper for yearly subscription

    then app called grabit from here

    www.shemes.com

    then a site to grab the files

    free one is here

    www.nzbsrus.com

    no worrying about seeds/peers.just max speeds all the way

    Cheers Hursty, I'll look into it

    Another thing good about newsgroups is no seeding!!

    I was going to get into that sort of stuff a couple of months back but i thought F.[_].C.K it, I'd rather wait than pay. But if you constantly max out it might be worth paying :)

    I'm just looking how long left with Wanadoo, I have been with them for 1 year and 4 months now with the same package, but does your 12month contract start again when the next year starts. cos the price has gone down about £5 since 4 month ago. I'll ring them up some time and ask them if I could finish with them at any point see what they say :p

    As for torrents, any one struggling I'd be happy to help :p :) :>) :<) :) :/

    have you checked whether you can get it?
    its not available everywhere
    if you go down the newsgroup route,of which i am trying to find out some info,i heard on 8 mb,you get around 800 kb/s
    thats about 5 gb for 1 1/2 hr (i think)

    i have been going now for 5 1/2 hrs on a 1 mb,i have downloaded 2.4 gb

    Yes i can get it, 800KB/s that will times my current download speed by 10

    you could probably get a film within an hour! using that setup.
    and songs in seconds, i think I'll go for it, I'll double check that i can get it

    Have you opened up your ports?
    Have you set your max upload to 20KB/s?
    What site was the download from?
    Have you connected to tracker okay?

    What connection are you on? 1mb, dail up................

    Bitsoup is the best i've come across, youve got to get torrents when their healthy is it a popular torrent your downloading?

    If your port is open its probably the max you can get for that particular torrent Im downloading at 45KB/s with 9seeders 17peers so their aint much difference

    115-120KB/s maxing out, which is quite rare nowadays usually sits around 100, It depends if I go after rare file.

    Double check that your ports open, and download on torrent at a time
