      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.

Low Download Speed

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

My download speed has lowered twice since I updated BitTorrent to version 7.6.1. My download speed used to be up to 1 Mb/s, now it's always around 450 Kb/s. So, I think, my provider is not the problem. I have to do something with BitTorrent Preferences. Unfortunately, I don't quite understand what to do with the Preferences, so I have changed them as listed in SLOW TRANSFER SPEEDS post. Could you please tell me what should I change in order to get higher speed?

Same problem. But I seem to be limited in my seeds. I can have 4-5 tops, and usually there are 20 available. Is it the same with you?

The number of seeds is irrelevant to your overall download speed. Your settings, as well as your internet security software settings, are more significant factors.

OK. So, what can I do with the settings? I'm not a specialist in these matters...

I use ESET Smart Security 4 both as antivirus and firewall, all permissions for BiTorrent are open.

And I'm sure that the problem is the new version of BiTorrent (7.6.1), for I have not changed anything else.

Could you please help me to get my previous speed (up to 1 Mb\s)?

Which data should I give?
