    Try this, disable UPnP and set a port over 10,000 that isn't the default at options>preferences>connection, enable Protocol Encryption: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/395674 and you can enable both DHT options but only on public sites at options>preferences>bittorrent. You can set Global maximum connections and maximum connected peers to 200 - 300. Make sure your connection type in speed guide is set correctly for your upload.

    you said that you got your speed from a dsl speed test. Is your internet connection DSL or cable??? Just sign up in a private tracker and you'll get much faster speed.

    Have you got kB confused with kb? 8 kb = 1 kB. 80% of your upload is around 12 kB which utorrent uses and speed tests I have seen don't. 118 kbps seems fairly low, check it a few times. This is an accurate site that tests Globally: http://www.speedtest.net/

    I see. Well, cable is much faster than DSl so yeah.. And Demonoid is only semi-private tracker.

    You have to be able to upload in order to download. Around 12 - 15 at connection type at Speed Guide is correct but seems quite low. Select torrents with many seeds/peers and another possibility may be your ISP is throttling torrents.

    Usually a new Isp but throttling is only a guess to check out. Sometimes, Protocol Encryption, downloading between 12:00 A.M. and 6:00 A.M. or using a port that other processes use may work like 443, 1720 or 8080. Edit: nothing to do with throttling but if IE 7 is installed, try IE 6.

    Hey, try downloading during midnights and early mornings where most of the people are asleep. That way, less traffic, faster download!

    Very true, but there is a simple work around. When you set the global max up speed, that is the speed that the client recognizes in terms of "having to give to receive." Set the global to whatever....now when you start a torrent, you can right click it and enter whatever value you like for max upload speed for the individual torrent, with no decrease in dl speed. Kinda goes against the "sharing" spirit of bittorrent, but it is a work around.

    I just started downloading torrents and all the guides have been very useful. A couple of questions though....how do I add trackers to my tracker list in BitComet?....and it is better to use multiple trackers or just try to stay with one? I have read that private trackers are better, but getting invites aren't simple as everyone has indicated. Plus I live in the US so I can't access some trackers like www.torrentspy.com Greatly appreciate the help....

    Yea, I feel bad for those people who live in America coz Torrentspy.com closed their server over there. Move to Canada if you want. JOKE. Anyway, I don't use those tracker list.

    * so lucky that Am not in America

    Another question....I also have been trying to use uTorrent, but when I go to download, I get "Not enough storage to process this command". Is this because I really don't have the memory space? I usually have between 4-6GB available on my HDD so why would I get this message? Or is it due to the type of media file I am trying to download? A lot of the torrents I download have the .avi file extension. Does this really make a difference?

    Nevermind about the trackers, I see that when I login to one, it appears under my tracker list......

    you guys havent got a 400mb/s and a 100mb/s connection because it says it Network Connections that is just the speed that connection ie the ethernet port could take. Your broadband speed is what decides what your speed is.

    In Zonealarm go to Firewall>Main then move the "Internet Zone Security" slider to "Medium"

    You'll still be protected except you'll be visible to other computers. Wait a little while and utorrent will change from Red to Green.
    When you're finished with utorrent shift the slider back to "High"

    Hope this helps.
