    hey

    change the ports within the client to 6000-6020

    cuz isp slow down the speeds on the default bittorrent ports!!!


    hope this helps

    Adjust your upload banwidth until you find a point where it does not throttle your download bandwidth All Bt clients will download/upload at about the same on your sys with the same settings..I reccomend ABC because I like it...

    you said the torrent file had 15 seeders.... what about leechers... if there were 500... well... i guess you won&#39;t get good speeds...

    if you wanna get really good speeds.. try other torrent sites apart from suprnova. try joining torrentbits.org... when i use their torrents, i get really really good speeds (300-400 KB/s) but theres a rule with this type of sites, you HAVE to upload or share as much as you take.... or you will be kicked out....

    the way i understand it is:

    seeders = uploaders
    leechers= downloaders
    peers= seeders+leechers
    (leechers d/l from seeders)

    in order to get good d/l speeds... there has to be a balanced amount of seeders and leechers... or more seeders than leechers...
    so in a torrent that says 10 seeders and 2 leechers, the u/l speed of the 10 seeders is gonna be divided by 2.... meaning you&#39;re gonna get awsomes speeds
    in a torrent that says 10 seeders and 1000 leechers, the speeds of the 10 of them is gonna be divided by 1000, so your d/l speed is gonna suck


    now... each site you get a torrent from is probably a different "community" and you want to find a community that shares a lot... in suprnova, for example... there is no control over people who don&#39;t share (they upload in minimun speeds and &#39;till they finish d/loading) -wich is wrong btw- and these people make the network slow
    ... but privates comunities (you have to sing up and give some personal data) do care how much you download and how much you upload... if you don&#39;t upload as much as you d/l you could get kicked out... so everybody tries to upload as much as they can.... wich makes the d/l speeds really fast i.e., torrentbits.



    as i said before... this is the way I understand it... so i might be wrong in some details...

    this is of course not exactly how it is and is where BT can sometimes sucks ass and can be v frustrating,

    peers share with peers - and as all BT users know, we share a lot with our upload speeds at max but our d/l dragging along,

    i rule i go with is keep connections low, for example if u set connections open as 60, whats the point if there is only 30 in a swarm, and if u really want that specific torrent fast - make sure its the only one your d/l&#39;ing so it has full upload speed which will attract interest from other peers and seeds
