So basically I am yet another victim of the now-infamous "Connecting to Peers" bug, but it doesn't seem as fatal for me. I can download certain torrents, and from certain sites, virtually all torrents will work. In a nutshell, I don't think my firewall on my PC is to blame (especially since I turned it off for a while to see). Here is the kicker... these same non-functioning torrents start right up once I go into someone else's wifi. In other words, I think the issue lies with certain torrents on my router specifically. Of course, I have no idea where to go from here. Thanks a million, yall (and for the record I did do a search, which is how I know this problem is such a pandemic... other posts just didnt seem relevant enough)
Few weeks ago everything was okay, neighbors(land owners) were sharing their internet trough cable for free and only using WI-FI. My torrent speed was constant 1.2~1.4 MB/s . But they didn't really get good WI-FI signal in their furthest house rooms so they bought http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-WR1043ND and connected it with cable to our old DRG A125G router which is using dsl connection. My PC is still connected to DRG A125G with cable. Ever since my download speed from websites and regular links stayed the same ~1.4 MB/s, but my torrent speed decreased to 50~100 kB/s and strangely my bad upload speed ~80 kB/s didn't change. I tried uTorrent and BitTorrent both were similar... Tried connecting my PC cable to new router ethernet ports and it worked (speed was ~1.4 MB/s) for a while, but it started to slow down again today... Strangely Slackware was downloading ~1.4 MB/s while other torrents from Kickass and PTB were slow. Any ideas what could be done to improve torrent download speed?
