darkie5000 Posted April 14, 2016 Report Share Posted April 14, 2016 Ok, first time poster, but i am NOT a n00b. This IS NOT a "why cant a finish my download past 66.6% without any seeds and while all other peers are at 66.6%"? Here's the deal: I add a new torrent to bittorrent client. Healthy torrent (multiple seeds seen), so it immediately starts DLing, goes from about 100kb/s to about 2000kb/s in about the course of 20-30s/. Then we die! All of the sudden the rate drops off a cliff (if I understand how "decaying averages" work, i'm pretty sure it went to zero DL rate almost instantly). Now I have several torrents at 24.9% and 15.9% for example, with at least 6 100% seeds visible, and they wont even start again at .1kb/s. "Again" being important there because I WAS DLing from them before it got cut off. I have restarted BT multiple times (which would sometimes help in the past to start them again), and I have waited several hours for the torrents to restart which at their previous rate of DL they would have taken another 5 mins to finish max. This has happened several times in the last month or two, not all the time. From beginning to death takes about 30-60s. I always get some of the torrent, and there are always multiple seeds and peers visible. And I also have several torrents that I am successfully seeding, but same problem whether i have them going or not. one last note, i am not someone to bother signing up for a forum to ask a question i could have googled. Maybe i'm the only one with this problem? I do sorta feel like the problem is on my end and not the internet's but i have considered my ISP might be trying to mess with me. Thank you for any help the community can provide. GO BITTORRENT!!!!!!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
