    Not your ip address, your Default Gateway and use IE if you're not.

    Hey guys, nice guide, i've followed it and tried to maximize download speeds...heres my specs

    10 MB down
    1 MB up

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 8765 kbps (1095.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 1018 kbps (127.3 KB/sec transfer rate)


    i see high speeds on private trackers sometimes
    but when i use public trackers with 40+ seeders...i tha max download i get is around 40KB, i would think that i would be able to download much faster, not only that but on torrents that have 25 seeds why is it that the number in front is only 2 0r 3 example.......3(25) why is the number in front so low (this is the amount of peers im connected to correct?) how can i change that to a higher number?

    in general, what do you guys think my download/upload speeds should be for

    A private trackers

    B public trackers

    (i understand the amount of seeders make a difference, i just thought having this fast of a connection, it would be much faster than what it is)

    thanks for the help guys

    On private sites, seeders need to maintain a good ratio and keep their U/L settings up to get it, on public sites, they probably have their U/L set down after they complete and you have no way of knowing. Try raising Global connections to connect to more seeders. You can see your max speeds by dividing those results by 8, 1 KB = 8 kb, then U/L speed again by by 80% for client, settings in clients may be in KB (kilobytes) but show in kb (kilobits) but Cable will fluctuate, check it at various times on various days.

    Thanks for the great guide!

    Still curious about one thing tho. The WinXP TCP/IP max half-open connection limit is not mentioned. Since I've read a couple of guides recently and every single one recommends a different setting I'd be glad to hear your opinion on that matter.

    Right now mine is patched to 100 with net.max_halfopen set to 50.

    Can you find another version of your router make or model at port forward? Quite often, different versions and models are similar. That actually worked for me when my router wasn't listed. You should at least be able to access your router and look around.

    Not at all familiar with ratDVD but sounds like a DVD compatible file. Maybe ImgBurn? (free)

    is anyone else having much slower download speeds with the most recent beta of uTorrent? the last beta worked great, and now I peg out at about 60kbps...
