Thread: WAY too slow torrents--->HELP pls

  1. #1
    Hello guys, i really need some help here...

    I am on DSL (1Mb) and every time i try to download a torrent the speed is way too slow.

    When i say slow i mean 0-3 or 5 KB/s. But every time i download a regular download from any site the speed is 90KB/s at least!

    I use bitlord or bitornado. I always end up uploading at least 8 times more of than i downloaded, since i upload with a speed of 18-20 when i limit it to 20!

    Do you have any suggestions? i would really apreciate it.

    PS: i've never tried to download from a private site

    try limiting your upload speed to 12-15KB
    forward your listening ports if behind a router

    I have the same problem. I get real slow download speeds for BT like 2-5 kb/s and i am also not behind a router or a firewall. My max upload speed is 12 kb/s but i limited it to 8 kb/s. I tried different BT clients and different torrents but all give me the same results.

    torrentit is the best!
    But very strict with ratios and it is not open for signups anymore...
    Wish I had an invitation for it too...

    Maybe your problem is that you are trying to get something that is old that has no seeders.
