Exclamation Help on download speed

ok, im using Azureus, and im getting all green smilies on my torrent files. i have my firewall disabled. I have no firewall-router or such, and still im getting only 1-3kbs on my downloads. One is connected to like 50 seeds and 150 peers, and getting 4kbs... that cant be normal :P

Also my upploadspeed is sett to 60% of its capasity, so that should not be the problem.

I have also tried out some other bittorrent programs such as: ABC, BitTornado, and BT+, and i am having the same problem with these programs.

Ive read a bunch of FAQ's on speed optimizing and such, but nothing I do seem to work. It would be awsome if any of you guys have any handy tips 'n' tricks, that might work )

what kind of internet connection do you have?

go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest
and tell us your results, it could be that that is your maximum data transfer rate.

Cap your upload at ~42KB/s and you should be fine. Also increase the Default max upload slots per torrent in Configuration:Transfer to about 15. Restart Azureus.

You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.

You didn't specify, so I'd like to make sure of one point. Did you limit the upload bandwidth to 80-90kpbs?

Let's recap: You have green Health but get only 5 KB/s download speed?

Try this:

Cap your upload at 12-13KB/s (you got the same pipe as me: 768/128).
Increase the Default max upload slots per torrent to ~10

This does not make any sense for me. Either you have an unlimited number of simultaneous downloads or 1. Both at the same time don't work
