    Today before I left school I resumed my BitTorrent download [Finding Nemo The PC Game] and in the time that it should have taken to download about 100mb it only downloaded a total of... 5. What the heck! What has made me even more raging is that I am by no means greedy and I am only too keen to help others out, so why do my downloads stop.. and say downloading 5kb/s when they aren't, but they still upload, and all other users are getting FAST downloads, and LARGE downloads, and Im getting pathetically slow ones, and shitty ones at that. I'm sorry but I am raging!

    It's possible that you were the person with the largest amount of the file online today. This could have caused you to pretty much only upload. Sometimes seeds go offline.

    Otherwise, maybe your firewall is blocking some connections?

    No time to work out? Try Folding instead.

    I doubt it. When Norton asked me about allowing file connections I allowed it. But then again.. you know Norton Thanks anyway...

    It's not the firewall it's from resuming, when u were downloading at first it probably was going fast but if u stop it then try to get back in u are like one of the last leechers if their are alot of leechers, that's what happended to me and Bad Boys 2 I started off at my max speed then the recycle bin messed up the explorer and Bad Boys 2 wasn't in the taskbar anymore so I restarted then I was getting a slow as speed.

    I do find my results with BT to be pretty inconsistant, ranging from great to nothing at all.

    Try using shareaza for downloading torrents.
    it works a lot better for me.

    (p.s:in the options u have to change from kb/s to KB/s)
