configuration help....


Recommended Posts

1. bitcommet 1.29

2. comcast cable

3. comcast modem, direct connection

4. no other devices connected ( only 1 computer at a time, same brand model etc)

5. windows xp sp3, fire wall off, no anti viruse

6 all torrent downloads

7. speed test is good almost t1 lan speeds

using all stock settings, ie fresh install of bitcommet and windows(updated to sp3)

i have had this problem for a long time and can not seem to find an answer.

when i download i see the # of seeders and # of peers. yet i am only able to connect to a small # of the peers. and this is only with bitcomet.

example there are 7 seeders and 216 peers. i can connect to 7 seeders and only 8 peers. yet with the same torrent using utorrent*(i dont like) on a different computer of the exact same specs and same location, i am able to connect to 100+ peers and get much higher down load speeds. can any one help? thanks in advance

On popular torrents, you'll usually get faster speeds with bitcomet because of it's ability to download from sources other then the bittorrent swarm, so this is unusual. I suspect the "different computer" is what is making the difference here. Something on this computers setup or internet connection could be making it difficult to get sucessful connections.
