    What should my upload be so I can get healthy and fast downloads without bogging down my upload speed? I heard that if you set your upload speed to more than 85% of its total upload bandwidth, your internet will choke...

    My download speed is 8 mbps

    my upload speed is only 512 kbps

    upload speeds suck where I live.

    It depends on torrents, somes despite rich seeded/leeched suck although you give full bandwith. Btw. I think only dl speed from leechs is affected by UL limit.

    My upload is 10 Mb/s, so around 1 MB/s max.
    I can set it at 800 kB/s up, but then my download starts to drop sometimes.
    So I set it at 666 kB/s up, but 75% is sort of a standard.

    Check your speed in your client with a large and steady download, start at 50% and go up.
    See when the download starts to drop, and set it a bit lower :smile3:
