    Depends on the torrent you are downloading the tracker you are downloading it from, the seed/leech ratio and your service provider maybe having some problems.

    Some ISPs pick on BitTorrent transfers, for their own reasons, so maybe changing your port number regularly and using encryption might help.

    Also, maybe your ISP has reduced your upload bandwidth because you've been using too much bandwidth (my provider is *very* picky about this).

    You do mean 40 KBps (kilobytes) rather then 40 Kbps (kilobits) per second, though, don't you? 40 Kbps would definitely have me checking my contract and my phone line!

    And, of course, you can only upload what people want to download from you!

    Yea i meant 40 kBps sorry about that. I enabled encryption and that incresed my upload speeds by about 3kBps (not really the change im looking for lol).

    @ thesixthsensor: did you check your actual speeds (up & down)???

    That is the first step. You can NOT start tuning client/O.S. if you don't know your actual speeds. The speeds suggested/advertised by your ISP are nothing but eyecatchers in most cases.

    do a speed test and set your upload and download limits at 80% of your speed. this is the correct setup for most clients.
