I'm sure this post is all over the site but can't find the answer to my specific problem/concern.
I use a DSL connection. I can download multiple files and the speed can get up to 130 Kb/s after I configured the router and firewall.
And I know download speed depends on how many seeds/peers there are.
But some of my downloads can vary in speed greatly from minute to minute without the number of seeds/peers changing.
For example: I'm downloading a file - connected seeds 11, connected peers 54. Connecting peers 0. Download rate: 3Kb/sec from 10 peers. Health 2529% These seed/peer numbers don't change, but sometimes my download speed can get up to 22 Kb/sec. for this file. But it doesn't last long. Doesn't 3Kb/s seem slow with the large number of seeds and peers?
In comparison: I'm downloading another file: connected seeds: 2, connected peers 4. Download rate: 25 Kb/s from 4 peers. Health 303%
There's no consistancy, so I'm thinking something's wrong.
I have my router and filewall configured properly, I think (one port opened).
Am I concerned about nothing?
