Decodem Your 256 connection is kilobits (kbs) and uTorrent shows its speeds in kilobytes (kBs). 8kbs = 1kBs so the 256kbs = 32kBs. So your speeds are not that far off. If your network status is showing green, I do not see why trackers are showing offline so much. You might want to try enabling encryption and see if that helps. Go to Options/Speed Guide and at the bottom of the Speed Guide screen there is a box to tick to Enable Encryption. Press Use Selected settings to save. You may also want to use the Speed Guide to adjust your uTorrent settings to their optimal for speed. There is a link to a speed test on that screen. The important speed for the settings is the upload speed of your connection. You should stop all internet activity, including torrents, before taking the test and you should take the test a few times to get a reliable average. Once you have an average upload speed you would go back to the Speed Guide screen and there is a pulldown menu of usual upload speeds where it says Connection Type. This menu shows speeds in kilobits (kbs) and you should choose the one closest to your speed and it will automatically adjust several uTorrent settings to fit in with your upload speed. Press Use Selected Settings button to save.
