    I have broadband highspeed , and right now i am trying to download a file on BT which is connected to 20 peers and a total speed of 600KB/s . My Download speed is 1 KB/s and max is 10KB/s . This always happens when i download with BT, so i'm wondering if there is anyway to fix this problem , please?

    Also i've set my upload to 216 KB/s and my download is still very slow...

    do you have 216 KB/s of upload to give?
    that's just a little more than 1.5mbs upload....


    If not, turn the upload to a more approprate setting.

    Broken is absolutely right, the more bandwidth you allow for uploads, the slower your download.

    As you will be seeding this file when it is completed you can allocate more then (you will be seeding, won't you?).

    As a general rule you can upload to 1/8 of your available bandwith and 1/2 of this gives me my best results (current download speed is 60 to 90 kbps).

    I have 1176/256 adsl and set my upload speed to 16 kbps.

    After completion I raise the level to 32 kbps and seed to 200%. This can take a couple of days.

    its possible you have your BT ports blocked, usually happens if you have a router

    are you getting a yellow light when you are downloading?

    Hi,

    I will have to agree with Hackmed on this one, this sounds like your problem. I had the exact thing happen at my work.

    Its not your upload speeds, actually Ive found the higher the upload the higher download rate I get.

    well the images seem to be broken, but this guide may be able to help if you have a linksys router.

    you can look in your routers manual on how to forward ports, you have to forward ports 6881-6999 (defult BT ports) to the computer&#39;s IP you are using BT on.



    edit: i noticed in your other thread Lyrok that you were talking about changing the ports in BT, this is not needed (unless you want to download off torrentbits) you just need to change the router port forward settings,

    for example i use BT on my computer with an ip address of 192.168.1.101, all i did was go to the router settings>port forwarding enterd the port range (6881-6999) and then ticked the tcp box (not udp) then put the ip address in of 192.168.1.101 (the computer im forwarding too)

    do you have a firewall program running?
    is it fully disabled?

    did this fix your problem?
