Thread: What's up with my torrents?

  1. #1
    Can someone explain to me what's up with my torrents? I use Azureus, generally, but sometimes I try TorrentStorm.

    Anyway, I was online yesterday, happily downloading on Azureus. I had a speed of 27 kb/s or something, which is about the best I can hope for, realistically on my 256 ADSL. Anyway, I shut my computer down a bit later on. The next day I booted it up again, loaded up Azureus, and now, for some reason, all of my torrents show a red smiley face, except for one, and on that one, despite the fact that there are the same number of peers and seeds online, I can only get a speed of 1.5 kb/s. I can upload allright - in fact, it's uploading away quite happily. Checking the details, I see that all of the peers apart from 2 are choking me, even though I'm uploading to loads of them.

    What's going on there, and how can I get back to my normal speeds? I mean, it's not as if I've changed any of the settings. In fact theyr're exactly the same as before. The strange thing is, I tried TorrentStorm, with some different torrents, and I get higher speeds on there - but only about 8 kb/s. What's going on? I've tried leaving it. In fact, I left it all night, and when I came back, although I was connected to about 10 seeds and 40 peers, they were still all choking me apart from 4 (and those four were hardly giving me great speeds - less than 1 kb from each).

    Has anyone else had this problem? And, if so, why, and how did they fix it? Thanks a lot.

    The other thing is... now lokitorrent had gone, can we still use their trackers? I mean, I have one torrent that I'm half way through downloading, and it's on a loki torrent tracker, and it seems to still work... sometimes. Is that okay?

    Torrents need some time to reconnect to the tracker.

    Torrents downloaded from sites that are now offline dont work any more.
