    Hi

    I am downloading a torrent right now and I am facing up to 36kkbps of speed and i'm connected to a port. What shall I do to speed it up?

    Try putting your computer on a DMZ.

    Or google for a 'seedbox'

    There's no need to be in a DMZ if he has the ports forwarded correctly.

    If the port is forwarded correctly, both TCP and UDP then there is nothing more to do. If your ISP uses packet-shaping, where BitTorrent packets are given a lower priority, you could try using encryption in your BitTorrent client. It doesn't give any anonymity, however, so is only useful if they use packet-shaping.

    It's under your settings of your router.

    If it still doesn't work, go rent a seedbox. It's much more efficient.

    Well I want to download this z86 untouched build and I downlaoded from Rapidshare and it was corrupted. So I decided to download it a different way, and I chosen Torrents! I have downloaded using torrents before, sometimes I get fast speeds, sometimes I get slow speeds, but I would like to have them fast.

    BOOM!

    you know that on bittorrent ur download speed is directly influenced by the upload speed and peering of the connect peers in the swarm ?

    sometime u connect with peers that have high upload speeds and good peering (routing) with ur isp -> high speeds, sometimes you dont

    if your speed is ok on http (rapidshare for ex.) and ur connectable (port forwarding) then ur setup is fine. maybe ur isp is capping ur p2p traffic. if no go and read again above.

    ah .. try using utorrent not other client

    The reason why I say those words at the end of each post is that I really like the Demented Cartoon Movie, and you wouuld like it too. It's funny and Brian Kendal writes:

    What happens when I connect to more seeds, does that mean it will pump up the speed?

    Yes. Seeds are the best peers since they online provide data; they don't download anything from you at all. The more seeds the better and generally the faster the torrent will download.

    I have no problems an i rarely do.Its a combination of things to get best speed when downloading torrents:

    *Choose torrent with biggest number of seeds(if there are many similar ones).
    *Add some known public trackers to speed up download even further.
    *Use good and lightweight torrent client like uTorrent.
    *Make sure ports are open.
    *Make sure to allocate maximum bandwitdh to torrent.
    *Set torrent as high priority.
    *Download only files you need to save time(good torrent clients allow to skip files within a torrent).
    *Close all third party crap consuming bandwitdh(chat,internet TV,streaming,youtube etc).
    *Use countermeasures to avoid ISP traffic shaping.

    For example i downloaded the Win7 RTM zukona untouched iso with average speed of over 0.6MB/s(thats megabytes not megabits ppl :) )
