Download speed tests won't match

8 posts in this topic

Hey there,

I will try to make this as short and as appropriate as I can, so:

I've been searchin' all over the internet for the troubleshootin' of my download speed. Well guess what, my download speed is alright (see: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2049869224.png) but the test that BitTorrent makes doesn't really show my actual downloadin' and uploadin' speeds. I have a download speed of 10 MB/s and an upload speed of 0.75 MB/s, but BitTorrent keeps sayin' that my download speed is 3.3 Mb/s and upload is 0.75 Mb/s. Can anybody from the official board of BitTorrent help me solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

My problem aswell. I have a 1MB uncapped line with afrihost (South Africa). I have done 4 different speed tests (http://www.speedtest.co.za/internet-speed-test.html, http://www.speedtest.net/, http://www.speedtest.net/mini.php and a Broadband speed test that you can download here: http://download.cnet.com/Broadband-Speed-Test/3001-2085_4-10532940.html?spi=91b86a90cce838e9a5645451e30183ce).

All of them say I have an average of 200kb/s upload rate, and 450-690kb/s average download rate, yet I am lucky if I get 50kb/s download rate using bittorrent. Why? I seed all my torrents, and the share ratio of the torrents are above 1.100, so why is it so slow?

PLEASE HELP ANYONE!

Thanx,

VaMoose

I'm getting a imilar issue, but with mine I have 20MBps down and 2MBps up, and BitTorrent cripples my internet connection each time it is opened. I have tried un/reinstalling BitTorrent, I also tried changing the port, and I even tried uTorrent. None of this works. Any help in getting this resolved would be greatly appreciated!

That still doesn't provide the complete set of information the guide requested.

Upload Limit: 0.0kB/s (default)

Connections (per-torrent): 70

Max torrents: 60

Upload slots: 34

Connections (global): 800

Max active downloads: 63

Current port: 45682

upload speed is set to unlimited, bandwidth set to Greece, Athens, when I change it it does nothing. I change it and go back into the setup guide and it says Greece, Athens again.

Thanx,

Vamoose

Your settings are NOT in line with the guides I linked.

You have a max active downloads set HIGHER than the max number of active torrents.

You also have a calculated max number of connection attempts of 4200 with a global connection limit of only 800.

Please re-follow the troubleshooting guide again.
