      Forum Upgrades   01/29/2016

      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved. UPDATE: 2nd Feb - Looking for the BitTorrent Sync forums? They've moved to http://forum.getsync.com (you can use your existing BitTorrent forum credentials to login)

What to do to speed up downloads

9 posts in this topic

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.

Cheers!

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??
