    Good and use Peer Guardian when downloading or seeding: http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/ Not 100% but best there is, if Vista, utorrent has ip blocker but I've not used it: http://www.teckh.com/?p=87 Keep randomize port at options>preferences>connection unchecked with a router port forwarded.

    I have been using utorrent and rather than go to the trouble of port forwarding, i just unhook my router and go straight to the pc. As i only use the router when i work on someone's elses computer. I get uploads at 60kbs and downloads at around 100 kbs. Is there someting i should do or watch for, i also use peer guardian. I have a 7to 1 ratio right now on public sites, can't seem to get a private one open for sign up.

    That's fine, some modems have firewalls and need forwarding too but as long as port check in utorrent is green, you're good to go. Something to keep in mind is that public sites allow DHT, private sites don't and also set your upload properly for best download speeds.

    I forwarded my ports and tried all the different configs for the settings on utorrent preferences, but I'm still getting slow dl/ul speeds... Can someone tell me why?

    Hey all,
    My internet speed is usually medium-fast so when i downloaded Azure and Bittorent and only reached 2 kb/s i was shocked.
    I have been reading some other threads on this site about such a problem and i was hoping you can help me. Btw i use vista and im dont know much so may need a step by step guide :)
    thanks

    Try downloading during low peak usage like overnight, sometime's throttling is off then. Edit: what program, I know of nothing that will help?

    First of all is this.
    1. I am very pissed off.
    2. This is not working at all for me
    3. i have no Port Range Forewarding
    4. The screen shots dont show up.
    5. When i put the i.p. adress i get some kind of completely different screen that says ZHONE which is my routers company. This doesn't work for me, does anybody know of any other ways?

    Please HELP!!!!

    Ok, find your router here (only one, hope it's your's), click on it, then find your client, click on it and follow the direction's: http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm May need a static address, guide there. Use Protocol Encryption if your client support's it: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/395674 disable UPnP and use a port or port range over 10,000. Use the Default Gateway address at ipconfig/all and type it in IE, that will access your router login, part of static address guide, may not even be necessary. PS: I've had problem's with screenshot's too in the past and quit trying. You need to host them on Image Shack or Photo Bucket and use the URL from there.
