      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)

Bandwidth Allocation and setting download limit

5 posts in this topic

Hey, I'm kinda new to torrents and all and I've been reading up on them a little. I'm a bit confused about Bandwidth Allocation, it's set to normal and the download and upload limit is set to unlimited. From what I hear this will hurt your connection if want to..say play an online game or surf the net while you seed/torrent. I did a speed test and I have 10.51Mbps Down and 1.05Mbps Up I have 4 torrents downloading and 2 seeding and I guess they're all set to unlimited. Given my upload and download speed I'm not sure where I should set my limits for each download can someone help me or explain a little better about what I should do please. Thank you very much.

Edit: Sorry to double post but I didn't see the edit button. On speed test I found the option to change the measurements to KB so sorry about the Mbps. So my Download is 1306.9 Kb/s and Upload is 116.7 Kb/s

too be honest my bf said that you set the upload limit to 1 or none and the download limit to unlimit. because that prevents people from seeding off of you and gives your computer less traffic during the downloads. i gues you can say it like that. now if you have a setting of bandwidth allocation of high normal or low. i am not sure about that.

Then I would suggest your boyfriend isn't a very nice person. Ever heard of the golden rule?
