I am using bit torrent 7.2. I just got a new computer which has Windows 7 installed on it.

On my old computer (which had Windows XP), I had no problems with speed. Many times I was over 120KBs.
But, since I got the new computer with Windows 7, I have problems even getting into the 50's.
(By the way, my old computer was very slow and had less than 1 Gb of Ram.
I now have a computer with 6GB of Ram and I have wifi (I have a Linskys by cisco router [WRT54G2 V1.5]

Being on the net is super fast, but my bit torrent (and even my emule) are slow.
I followed instructions on computer and made a new rule in the Firewall, but it had no effect.

Can anyone help? Please?
Thank you

Hi. Try this YouTube tutorial. The guy sounds dull, but using his numbers it worked for me.

Removed youtube setup guide. Settings are NOT good for performance.

Youtube setup guides make recommendations to settings changes that are horrendous for actual performance (such as per-torrent connection limits being higher than global). Please refrain from recommending them.

Ok, so you personally don't want people to watch Youtube videos that make recommendations. Fair enuff. But do u have any suggestions as to how to get more speed? Perhaps maybe a link to some other post we didn't get to yet??

The common steps for troubleshooting I recommend come from the uTorrent forums at http://forum.utorren...ic.php?id=15992
