i am having problems downloading with torrents at speed, the maximum i seem to be getting on any torrent is 7kb/s. regardless of the seeder/leecher ratio. I recently upgraded my pc and thus installed windows on a new hdd. Before i upgraded i was getting the full speed of 2mb (around 230kb/s) and i wasnt connectable. I cant become connectable because i am living in halls of residence and i think there is a firewall somewhere down the line. (I have a LAN socket in my wall for internetl). I am using Sygate Personal Firewall with the same set-up as i had before, and as far as im concerned i have exactly the same software set up as before. Im using Bittornado, which i have never had a problem with.
Could it be my LAN adapter drivers? It seems to be the only thing that i have changed. Im using a new MSI k9ngm motherboard which uses Nvidia network drivers (Nvidia C51G/C51PV chipset i think). I have also got a new program running through my firewall; NDIS user mode I/O driver?!
I have checked all options regarding restricting speed and spent hours configuring my computer to try and get this working...please dont tell me to go to portforward.com!!
Any help appreciated
