Need help, been using bittorrent for several years, suddenly dl speed is gone

Recommended Posts


In need of help, have been using bittorrent for several years with no problems whatsoever, But all of a sudden i start a download and im getting download speeds of 8 to less than 1kbps. My internet connection is around 2mbps and bittorrent is configured properly. I have run test (ctrl-G) and it comes out positive, with 2mbps+ dl speed.

There also seems to be random spikes where the dl speed goes upto around 80kbps for a few mins then drops back to 8-1kbps (my upload speed is similarly affected by these random speed spikes, but NOT at the same time as dl speed)

Here is my result: 2776350322.png

Yet my client looks like this:bittorent.jpg

Thanks, and hopefully i can find the way to fix this.

thanks for the help, it appears that my isp may have been throttling the port I was using, having changed that and a few other setting as per the guide, I am now getting fairly decent speeds. Thanks again for the prompt reply and that guide helped me sort the problem!
