singapore torrenteers
after the earthquake,i was expecting services to recover gradually.It did,except for torrent on the singnet's 1500kps plan and have been using bittornado for about
6 mths with no trouble except the last few weeks iv been getting download speeds of less than 10 kb/s.iv tried different clients,bitpump,bitlord and the original bittorrent which worked for me in the past,various guides to optimize my download speeds,messing with my norton internet security firewall settings,switching back to windows firewall and disabling norton but nothing works.

Maybe you're just downloading bad seeded or over-leeched torrents.

Your ISP may be throttling BitTorrent traffic. In which case you might want to investigate encryption. (For which you need the right client; I know that Azureus does it (if prompted).)

that's right,y'all....maybe they rationed my bandwidth after the earthquake and forgot to turn the supply back on.anyways ill try that

I'm having the same issue and I'm using Starhub. It's getting frustrating anyone help? am using Bitcomet and I don't fancy Azureus it hangs my comp( no idea why but its real bad.)

kivine 2007-02-09 00:38

azureus uses more resources because its java based

I'm using starhub too, yet I get speeds of upto 1450+kB/s?

Why? Because I don't use firewall, direct connection (no router), randomize my ports (in case Starhub tries to block).

try utorrent and turn on forced encryption,im getting better download speeds than before my torrents finish with ratios of 0.8 or lower and it can handle multiple torrents at once or u can queue them up.i did this and im downloading 4 gigabytes for every 2 to 2.5 gigabytes i upload
remember to upload at 80% of your max upload speed

In theory enabled encryption and "allow incoming legacy connections" would give you the max amount of connections. I noticed the major problem seemed to be connecting to peers in the first place, you can usually only connect to a few peers and even then they wont give you good speeds at all(due to the ISP traffic shaping or whatever). The encryption does not seem to nullify the ISP throttling totally, but i think it helps. If i can get more than 15 KB/s download rate on a torrent, its a goddamn miracle.

if "enabled" encryption doesnt help trying turning it to "forced"
