Thread: UTorrent DLing super slow... help please!!!

  1. #1
    I just switched over to fiber optic connection. I've had a lot of problems getting it running which included re-formatting my disk to get rid of some virus that was slowing down my connection.

    I just installed UTorrent again and was looking forward to DLing some files at speeds higher than what I was getting before. Unfortunately, files are drizzling in at 2 or 3kB. I just ran another speed check and my connection DLoad speed is 65Mbps.

    Anyone have an idea what the problem is? I never had a problems with speed (even when my PC had a virus) with my prior ADSL connection. Thanks

    Well, you have to recognize how BT works. Is the file you're downloading popular? How many seeders are there? If it's only one guy you're getting it from, then its going to be slow...

    Also, if you have a router look into Port Forwarding.

    yeah it's a popular file. I think I have a dynamic IP, so I'm looking at portforwarding now, which seems fairly difficult. Will a dynamic IP keep me from DLing with decent speed?

    Honestly, I'm not sure if I have a router or not... I have three different electrical boxes for this connection now, one of which is a CTU (which my VoIP telephone box, and PC are connected to.) The first box is connected to the fiber optic line and everything else is connected to that.

    No, a dynamic IP wouldn't do that (I think). Doesn't sound like you have a router, I mean you should have an instruction manual which would tell you how to access its firmware settings.

    If the file is popular (meaning it has alot of seeders), check your client settings. What's the color for the torrent file? Is it Red/Yellow/Green/blue?...Other than that, I'm spent. At least for tonight...Tired.

    I'd been using Utorrent with no problems with my ADSL connection, and recently switched to Fiber Optic so I could get even higher speeds. I've had to reformat my HD just so that I could have DL speeds of about 70Mbps.

    I Dled and installed UTorrent and tried DLing some torrents. They have come in slowly at a max speed of 2 kB.

    I live in Japan and got my new service through NTT, the local phone company. The phone company connected me with an ISP called Plala. I was given the modems (or whatever they are) by my phone company. There are 3 of them: one box connects to the optic fiber which all the other boxes are connected to. A CTU box is connected to that. The CTU connects directly to my PC and also to another box (VoIP) which connects to my phone.

    After connecting all this, I also had to install some software from the phone company NTT. This included a security system (made by Trend Micro I believe except with NTT's name on it.) As this has anti-virus and a firewall I believe, the Windows XP firewall has been disabled.

    When I connect to Utorrent I usually first get a yellow triangle and then a red "!" and a message saying that a firewall or router is blocking peers connecting to me. At this point I have disabled the security system. At one point I got a green circle, but the DL speed didn't increase. The symbol eventually turned to a red "!" again. I used the Utorrent port checker and it said that the port I was using wasn't open.

    I don't know if I have a router or the brand because it's all generic NTT stuff. I tried calling NTT but they won't help me open a port for P2P usage. When I tried doing port forwarding via IPconfig it didn't give me a subnet mask, Default gateway, or Name server, but I think I may have found it in my connection info in my LAN info.

    When I did do the ipconfig one of the headings was Automatic Tunneling Pseudo-Interface, and another was Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface. Can someone help me out with this please!!!

    I feel like I never should have switched internet service.
