heh messing around with your upload limit


Recommended Posts

Yes, you're right cass. But limit it to 80% of your total upload spees, then you'll get a wonderfull download speed (if enough seeders of course) and a wonderfull upload speed..

Just say this:

If your upload connection is: 512kbit/s. ..

So say: 512/8x0.8 = 51.2 .. Now, this is only THEORETIC. So limit it a bit more than that. Try and limit it to 48KB/s. . If you still get a bad downspeed, limit it to 43KB/S... Personally I have a 512kbit connection, and I have limited it to 43KB/S. So it's great. Downloading with my full capacity, while uploading at a great speed. ;)

u should be able to get speeds of 30 or 40, when i had 512 i could...

especially if ur upload speed is 8kb.

try restraining your upload speed to about 4 or 5 or maybe three

I think the download and upload must be related

everytime i knock it down some the download goes down with it too

looks like I'm just stuck with a long wait

i used to trying and use emule, but you can get much better speed with torrents.

Yes, of course. Download and Upload are related.

The reason behind this is that an ADSL network is a "packet" network. Every packet contains some small bits of the file. Everytime you recieve a packet (download), your computer needs to upload a packet to the peer that sent you the other packet. In that packet your computer says: "Allright, I have recieved the packet correctly, please send the next packet". And so on, and so on.. This is happening millions of times, until your file has been downloaded successfully. *These packets are called "ACK packets".

Now, if you haven't limited your upload speed, your upload speed will drown, and the packets that is saying that you recieved the packet the peer sent will be delayed, and sometimes lost.

Also if you have limited your upload connection too much, the packets can't be sent from your connection to the peers, and then your downloadspeed goes down..

This is how ADSL works. :)
