    actually I got kerio firwall too.The 1.6 version of utorrent is having problems since I upgraded.I don't know if it's related I was just saying....Utorrent now says "unconnectable" and that I need to forward my port...But I did and was doing fine with 1.5.

    I guess that's what I get for upgrading lol.

    When you pass your (1.4MB) through this test http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ what is your download and upload speed? i have the same 1.4MB using a NextNet Wireless Router, my DL is 1332kbps (166kb a second) UP 207kpbs (25.9 kb a second)

    And can someone tell me a guide to portforward NextNet Wireless Router? http://www.portforward.com don't have it.

    Great guide DVDBack23, i think it was the network encryption, but now my downloads for a 4gb file go around 200 KB/S which is alot better than the 20-30 i was getting before.

    DVDBack, do you have any guide on maximizing downloads using regular BitTorrent client (4.20.4)? Or would you recommend to use a certain Torrent program in particular?

    Im just wondering if my downloads can go any faster, On Speakeasy's speed test it shows my download is 5000 kbps and my upload is 380. If i got this right, shouldnt my downloads go 625 KB/s?

    if you max out your connection i beleive you can go at 550 KB/s but i also think that due to the slowish uplaod speed, the max you can reach is 300 K/s. I know that after my ISP blocked my upload my speeds dropped to 600/700 KB/s from their regular 1000 KB/s, which sucks but there is nothing we can do about it unfortunately.

    amakusa,
    I recommend using Utorretn 1.6 ;)

    well i have had around 450, but it was only on one torrent one time, ive never really tried private trackers since i dont have any invites, but do you think that would make a big difference?

    Yes! If u were using a private tracker and downloading only 1 torrent at a time (which i recommend) you should regularly hit 350-400 KB/s.

    I know this site doesent allow you to trade invites, but do you know any sites that do, or any private trackers that are availible for registration.

    Oh, im registered at demonoid (thats where im getting the 200 kb/s) but i though maybe other sites with invites would go even faster. So you know any forums where i could ask for invites?
    Thanks -Socom

    unforunately not, but keep brute forcing Torrent Leech and hopefully a spot will open up for you.

    guinnys,
    youre not doing too bad, your max speed for torrents is only 100 Kb/s or so.

    i guess so, but from a private traker with 45 seeds and 3 leecher, shouldn't it be a lil faster?

    yes it should be at 60 KB/s im assuming due to the slow upload speed. are u having problems with any of the steps in my guide besides port forwarding?
