    allot of us VIP members are seeders, we just use the VIP so we dont have to cap download speeds to keep the ratio in balance. i can down at over 500 kB/s but only up at 50, without the VIP account i'd have to cap my download speed to 50 to keep any sort of decent ratio. for those who dont want to pay the membership all you have to do is cap your down speed to match your up and seed for at least a .6 or 3 days to prevent a hit and run, you can download samples from movies and seed them to keep your ratio up.

    if your having download problems and there are seeders and lechers (yes you download from leaches too) then it's a problem on your end of the line or your ISP is blocking, allot of ISPs are starting to set up blocking software for P2P software.

    if i have active torrents to download i usually get connected at 500+ kB/s, even connected to the uploader on a few minuet old torrent i get at least 150-200 till more people get on leaching, then it goes up.

    goto http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and run the speed test from the server closest to your location, this will give you a breakdown of your down and up speeds as well as line connection speed. these download and upload speeds should be what your getting out of your torrent client.

    sounding more and more like your PCs hardware. you may have something slowing your HDD access slowing down your ability to write to the drive, at the bottom of µtorrent to the left of 'network OK' do you get a 'disk overload' with a % ??

    i can only venture to guess it's hardware related.

    hardware are the components that make up your PC. after the information is given to your modem it has to go through a 'network' of components before it's finely written to your harddrive.

    if your were getting the disk overload (you said your not) then it's an indication that your harddrive is not able to write as fast as your downloading.

    other hardware could be the network adapter might not be 100 mB/s capable, your processor isn't able to process all the information as it's downed. while i don't think this could be your problem, a Cat5 E cable between the modem/router/Ethernet Port is what i recommend, do you have just a plain Cat5??

    also you may be firewalled. under the control panel select windows firewall then exceptions and make sure your torrent client is checked as an exception.

    also if your using µtorrent and it's a processor problem you can allow µ to use more processor power under the advance settings. net.low_cpu, change to false and give it a try.

    i got lost in your short hand there..........you been hitting the bottle tonight???

    i was able to make out your asking your ISP for help, but they aren't going to be much if any help most of the time. you said a speed test gave you what they say they provide and that is all they are going to do. as for the 2 PCs on the same router keep in mind that they are both sharing the up/down speed so take that into count if your not getting max, the second may be upping or downing at the same time. also if you max upload speed you'll choke out your download speed on most servers, keep your upload throttled to around 80% of max.

    kc
