Press Ctrl+G in utorrent and run the test. make sure that a port is forwarded correctly. (TCP & UDP)
If you are using windows 7:
-Disable disk cacheing (just disable all of it, its under advanced in pref's.)
-Run the program as administrator & comp mode for vista.
Also, for my content fiends:
Basically what UTP does is detect network congestion (between peers A+B) by comparing pings. It then throttles itself down to just below the level where network congestion is caused. This is NOT how it gets around the throttle. This IS a reason why bell may let this go (for a while). This means that torrents will no longer choke out other network traffic when uncapped *hard caps available for up/down in settings*.
This also means utorrent isn't even trying to achieve max line speed. **** that.
In order to maximize your DSL link,
run two instances of utorrent (2nd instance has to be non-UTP bittorrent client. This means the 2nd instance can't be utorrent 2.0 (but can be 1.91A and older.) Some older versions still accept UTP transfers, but do not initiate them. Any further UTP traffic on the network will affect the first instances speed, therefore it I currently recommend turning UTP connections off entirely on the 2nd instance.) I haven't tried running both instances on the same machine, although this is likely possible. (remember to portforward for both instances, each needs its own port)
Remember, the 2nd instance (non-UTP) wont throttle itself at all. You will want to put a hard cap on both download and upload speed otherwise torrents will be eating up all your bandwidth. Also, since even incoming UTP connections aren't allowed for the 2nd instance, the traffic will be 100% throttled (but UTP wont detect this traffic, so at 30kb/s you can download an additional 1.1 gb in the 14 hours you are throttled a day).
Remember, if you have ADSL, your up speed will inversely affect your download speed
. Make sure no instance of utorrent is uploading at more than 20kb/s. (mine are at 6kb/up per instance)
I seem to be getting 250kb/s through UTP (throttled) and 375 unthrottled, and 30kb/s non-utp (throttled) and 500 kb/s (unthrottled).
That's 45 gigs a day theoretical download limit. I will probably scale everything back 20% to free up some bandwidth for everyone else in my house who needs internet. Still enough for 2-3 1080P rips a day, just need some more
I'm happy, and i still hate bell
Doogee, dont get fibe, its pointless. The cap is like 80 gb. I should be able to hit that in 2 days with my simple 8/1 sympatico ADSL profile.
