speed problem

hi

a day ago i downloaded bit tornado and i thought it would have a faster download. so after i downloaded the program then set it to automatic for the setting. the speed ended up being 1~5kn/s for download and about 1kb/s for the upload. also i am using cable.
can anyone help me so my download speed would be faster.

What color is the bulb? Do you have any routers/firewalls?

What is the speed of your internet connection? If you don't know it, test it here.

Yellow most likely means you are behind some kind of firewall.... If you click on the bulb it tells you what the status lights mean. Dont you see next to your modem another peice of equipment that splits the connection to other computers?

Now that we know what your problem is we can start to help you. I'd suggest that you open up ports 6881-6889 on your firewall and on your router if you have one. When you can get a green light, you'll know that your ports are all open.

A router is a piece of hardware that your internet connection and your computer are both connected to. It forms a barrier between them. You can see it with your eyes, it probably has lights on the front of it. A firewall is a software barrier that starts up with your computer. You can probably see it indicated by an icon in your system tray. I'm afraid that I don't know much about disabling firewalls or routers other than my own, but there are several helpful threads you might be able to find in this sub-forum. Maybe some helpful soul will even chime in here now that they know the problem. You can also check out Fixing Firewalls at degreez.net because they give a lot of help for different firewalls and routers in that forum.

Also, Windows has a firewall built in that might be blocking you. This is hard to notice unless you know exactly what to look for. To check to see if it is enabled and/or get rid of it go to Network Connections on you Control Panel. Select your internet connection and right-click it. Click on Properties. On the window that comes up, click the properties button. Then a new window will appear so click on the Advanced tab. There is a checkbox which indicates if the firewall is enabled or not. To get rid of it simply make sure that it is unchecked. Since these instructions might be confusing I created a picture to illustrate the process of removing the WindowsXP Firewall. Click on the thumbnail for the full sized version:

It entirely depends on the torrent. A brand new Naruto torrent can make 100kB/s easily. On the other hand I am downloading Mahojin Gururu episode 8 right now and it is crawling at 5-10 kB/s.

It probably is more indicative of the torrent that you are downloading than a problem with your connection, but it is possible that you are choking your conneciton due to an upload bandwidth limit. If this is the case, then put a cap on your upload bandwidth at 90% of your maximum upload bandwidth and it would raise your download. If you don't have any idea how to do this, or what you should set your upload limit to, then download BitTornado and set it to automatic. That is the little drop-down window in the lower left which I am circling in this illustration.



Of course you may not need to do this at all, it depends on your connection. I'd try downloading a few torrents with a ton of ul/dl and see how that goes before you worry about it.

It is your Hardware firewall giving problems then.
If it is a router firewall you should be able to open up ports on it to allow commication.

time elapsed/ estimated. That means the torrent has been running for 12minutes, 43 seconds and the program is guessing (badly) that it will be done downloading in another 2 hours, 21 minutes and 48 seconds. Note that the estimated time is rarely accurate since the download speed for BitTorrent (any client version) changes so much.
