I was currently downloading a torrent file at about 50kb/s before I had to restart my computer for something. I turned it back on and I went to Preferences (using uTorrent) and I changed my max upload speed to 2.0k/bs because It said I have uploaded 2 freaking gigs of one file. The k/bs is now staying at 12k/bs.
My question is, does your max upload speed alter the overall download speed? Or does the speed just come from other users? It is saying the download will take 2 days now but when it was going 50 it was going to finish within today.
Sorry I have been using Bittorrent for about 3 days now and just getting used to this.
