Like everyone else, I'm also having problem with the dl speed. I have read all the threads but it doesn't seem to answer my question. I'm running utorrent ver. 1.6.1 My setting are: Connection: Ramdom port is at default: 58265 Max upload rate: 8 Max. dl rate: 0 Bittorrent: Global max. connection: 450 Max. number of connection: 200 Upload slot per torrent: 3 Outgoing: Enable Advance: net max half open: 100 I have dsl yahoo and it's not running through a router. The port has been open. My speed test result is: DL: 763kbs UL: 225 kbps When I pay around with the max ul rate from 10 to 5 my dl speed slow down from 70 kb/s to 40 kb/s but when I change from 5 to 10 kb/s my dl speed jump to 130 kb/s then slowly decreases to 70 kb/s. How can I fix this?? My max dl is only 70 kb/s. with 40 seeds. I've also run the patch but that didn't help. Any suggestion???
