Thread: I want to improve my ratio before I get banned!

    Ok, I'm using Bittornado and I'm seeding two xvids atm. My upload rate is only 1 kb/s. One of the xvids has 21 seeds and 2 peers but my upload rate remains the same. My ratio is a measly 0.7 which is rubbish IMO and I can see myself getting banned asap!

    What can I change to give everyone the fastest upload possible?

    I have a SpeedTouch 5851 v6 router that might be causing the problems but I'm a n00b with things regarding firewalls and ports etc.. I can't exactly call my ISP and ask for help with this lol!

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

    Well I think the problem might be that no one wants to download from you as there are plenty seeds and only 2 peers.

    But why can't I give out 500 kb/s so others can recieve their stuff faster? Thats my usual download speed (crappy I know)

    close your firewall , make sure you are Connectable.
    and i think azureus and utorrent is better than bittornado (but not sure).

    dl some hot torrent early.
    ---------------------------------
    first , you should know your max up/dl. for example mine: max up=56kB/s max dl=250kB/s

    i dun think your 500kb is from 1 ppl.

    Is your connection that fast? Usually they are scewed to something like 5mbps/512kbps (which might be what you have if your max down rate is 500 kB/s). Only when you get to higher speeds (ie, 30mbps/30mbps or the awesome 100mbps/100mbps) will you be able to upload that fast.

    I'm not sure what I've got.. I went to Control Panel/ Network Connections/ Local Area Connection Status / General, and it shows that the speed is 100 Mbps.. I've turned off the firewall in Windows and on the router but their isn't any improvement. The upload speed is currently 5 kb/s and theres now 4 peers instead of 2 but that might be coincidence... idk.

    What upload speeds do you guys give out?

    mine is alway max(56KB) , very slow.

    i think you could ask your isp for max speed.

    btw : are you showed connectable in your private site?

    121- take this speedtest:
    http://www.dslreports.com/stest?loc=4

    Paste the results here, they come in a little box. This will determine your connection speeds and how fast you can theoretically upload/download.

    This is what I got,


    dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-10-01 15:25:28 EST:
    329 / 457
    Your download speed : 329 kbps or 41.1 KB/sec.
    Your upload speed is much faster than down.. have you tweaked?

    Your upload speed : 457 kbps or 57.1 KB/sec.


    I can only get internet through a telephone line because I can't get cable internet at my current address. The phone line is downstairs and I have a 15 foot telephone extension cord running up to my PC upstairs... It's confusing because I can get 500 kb/s downloads (which is sad) but my upload to 'leechers?' is around 7kb/s atm..
