Doğukan Çil Posted June 15, 2012 Report Share Posted June 15, 2012 I'm experiencing incredibly slower than usual download speeds when using Bittorrent.All of this seemed to start when i started messing with the bandwidth options.It's currently like this ;Global Maximum of Connections : 800Maximum Number of Connected Peers per torrent : 500Number of Upload Slots : 40I tried lowering those numbers as i know it works when using low bandwidth , no luck... didn't help.net.max_halfopen is 1000I also tried forcing encryption or simply enabling it without any success regarding download speeds.It's currently "Forced"Maximum number of active torrents : 57Maximum number of active downloads : 57UPNP and NAT-PMP port mapping are disabled , i forwarded a port from my router and i used a big number it's currently : 17,000 (TCP,UDP)I even tried to enable port mapping although i forwarded my own , again i failed to achieve higher download speeds.Transfer Cap is disabled.Bittorrent is in my firewall exceptions. (Although windows firewall is disabled , my desperate attempts...)Bittorrent is in my AVG firewall exceptions.I disabled then uninstalled AVG believing it to be the source of the problem. Nope , it's not.I even thought of disk caching , maybe the disk somehow gets overloaded and i forwarded my new downloads to my other hard disk which is connected via SATA2 port. (Others were usb)Still i couldn't make any difference.I gave a manual cache size of 800 mb/s to see if only Bittorrent thinks it's overloading.No , it doesn't and My Hard Disk is not throttling my download speeds.Should you require options from The Advanced Tab , give me the entry and i shall copy one here.I'm using 50 mbps fiber connection and usually cannot exceed 180 kilobytes per second when downloading.Also it takes a lot of time to connect to the peers , usually in small-swarmed torrents it only connects to only 4 out of 50 peers.I choose my torrents well generally seeds/peers ratio does not go below 1.200 so the torrent i mentioned had around 60-70 seeds.In larger swarms it connects to over 400 seeds and around 200-300 peers and downloading with a speed like 180 kb...I'm using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.Thanks in advance...
