    hey wondering if someone could help me i've been trying to figure this torrent deal out for about a week now. So far i have set a static ip address and i'm using bittorrent so i've opened ports 6880 to 6888 and i thought that would be it but when i'm attemting to download a torrent file it still is super slow. I have cable internet with a dlink wireless router and have mcaffee firewall installed and enabled on my computer. The download speed for the torrent is 2kib/s estimated time left 449 hours. That's insane. Someone please help

    Coolk,

    Glad the guides help you so far.

    For heavily seeded files you could be getting 80 KB/s so there is still a problem. Perhaps your firewall? I really dont know anything about making exceptions with Zone Labs so you will have to look into it.

    As for the terminology,

    Seeds-someone who has 100% of the file and is now strictly uploading
    Leecher/peer- Someone who is downloading and uploading the file

    As for WinRar,

    After you have extracted the .vob, .bup, etc. simply open nero burning rom and select burn dvd-files. Burn at 4x on good media.

    Good luck!

    sorry i forgot to mention, that in this dvd-r folder, there are three file types:

    *.rar
    *.sfv
    *.nfo

    i know what are *.rar, But what are *.sfv and *.nfo, and what do i do with these files?

    Cheers DVDBack23! (",)

    the nfo you can open with text editors like notepad, as for the sfv, it is not important but dont delete it until after you have extracted from the rar files, then just burn with the method in my above post.

    Enjoy!

    I have 1.5 mb/s conmection speed, a level one wbr-3407a router, my U/D test results are 1127 kbps down and 146 kbps up. i am currently using Bit Comet. I think i have set up my router, i cant find any tutorials for it. and i am experencing 10 - 40 kb/s downloads, even with 59 - 65 seeds and 190 peers.

    first off let me say thanks for sticking around and helping us all---
    much respect bro

    ok here goes can u list your dslreports speeds so we can compare
    and can you tell us how long it takes you to download a 2gb file and please be honest

    my speeds are 5649 kbps dwn and 408 up

    i use bitcomet and the best speed i ever got is 70kpbs dwn
    i have only seen like 14 seeders at the most---except for music files

    i use public torrents ---so like you said i believe i shhould be dwnloader quicker

    also how do you get an invite for a private---torrent

    and how do you create a torrent file to share like the winrar kind that makes the separate files----
    and how do u upload it to the site so they can see you as a seed

    as you could tell im so new

    Zoeee, about your KB - MB - GB Problem,

    1000 KB = 1 MB,
    1000 Mb = 1 GB,
    1000 GB = 1 TB,

    So, 49146 is 49.146 GB

    I would suggest you stop downloading now.

    (KB = Kilobyte, MB = Megabyte, GB = Gigabyte, and TB = Trillabyte(Not used Much))

    Actually, its terrabyte, right?

    Please follow every step in my Bitcomet guide in my signature (look down) and if you still need help, please post again, and i will contine to help you.

    I have a 9 mb (1.1 MB/s) cable line with a 115 KB/s upload. A 2 gb torrent file, depending on the amount of seeds, (and using a private tracker) normally takes me 3-4 hours. The fastest i have ever download a torrent was a 1.4 gb file in about an 1 hour 20 minutes.

    With your line you should be getting 140 KB/s downloads. 14 seeders max??? How can that be, most hot files will have way over a 100+. Asi said to the other poster follow my BitComet guide in my signature and if you still need help feel free to post again, and i will try to help.

    Try http://bitsoup.org it is a private tracker that has spots open normally.

    Let me get this straight...you want to upload your own file? or do you want to become a seed for something you downloaded?

    Thanks man, I aprreciate it.
    Let me know how the downloading goes.

    Hi, i'm new here but I've been using bittorrent for a while. I just recently switched to BitLord, but when I first started using it, it was downloading very fast, but the next day it started going [bold]REALLY SLOW[/bold] and I don't know why. If you have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S.- According to the speakeasy thing my DL speed is 30441 kbps and my UL speed is 14987 kbps.

    P.P.S.- I'm in college right now and don't know what kind of service they have on campus.

    Unless you find the IT guys for your school and tell them to open a port for you...fat chance though, they could lose their job. On my 2.2 MB T1 college line i normally get only 75 KB/s for HEAVY seeded torrents.

    downlaoding off sites or the internet however, is VERY fast. I downloaded a 4.1 GB download (linux) off the web in 20 minutes.

    Well I'm getting about 1-2kB/s. What does "downlaoding off sites or the internet however, is VERY fast. I downloaded a 4.1 GB download (linux) off the web in 20 minutes." mean? Is it like bittorrent?

    Wow! What I said sounded stupid! What I meant by that is how and where can you get files that big on the internet without bittorrent? If you can't tell me where specifically, please tell me what I can google to find it.:p
