GenghisChris Posted November 14, 2006 Share Posted November 14, 2006 Hi all I just want to run through my setup for BitComet (v0.76) to make sure I haven't missed anything important (I'm a total torrent noob) first of all I downloaded Bitcomet checked my connection speed 2000kbps downstream and 240 upstream so i set my max download rate to 246 kB/s and max upload to 24 B/s (I figure this is correct) I set the port im using for BitComet to open via my router set my IPs to static alowed access through my firewall Disabled UPnP max downloads to 3 and I think thats it My download speeds still haven't increased much since I made the changes. I can get upto about 40kB/s sometimes a little higher. I feel like I should be able to get more, any suggestions? EDIT #2 Ok I've tried losing a couple of torrents so I'm downloading 3 now and have pretty much the same speeds, I'm about to try the office thingy test to see if i can max my speed, I'll post the reslts here. EDIT: I'd like to point out that my upload speed stops about at 26kB/s (higher than i set my max) and stays there. and I'm using a wireless contection, should I use my wire? I'm currently downloading 5 torrents and my speed ranges from 5 kB/s to 40 kB/s I think I should cut down on the amount of torents im downloading other than that I can't think that I'm doing much wrong, any help is much apreciated Thanks for taking the time to go through this info. :) EDIT: I tried open office as a single download and it hit my max of 250 kB/s so I guess my settings are as good as they can be. I still dont understand how some things can have health of 2500% and still only hover around 1kB/s guess I never will... oh well one other thing, how come if i'm downloading torrents and i only hit 20kB/s why does my conection act slower than a 56k modem if i surf at the same time? also it seems torrentplanet and tracker2.bt-net fail to connect so i'm not getting mximum seeds/peers any help on this also? thanks again Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
