Hi,Usually when I download huge files my average download speed at the end of the download is usually around 14-15 KBps. How are some of you getting over 20 KBps then? I have capped my upload at 25 KBps, even tried setting it to unlimited once but it doesn't help. I am using bit comet, should I be using any other client? Also do I need to do any port forwarding or something? I dont think I need to since the speed does go up to 24 KBps at times but the average at the end of the download is less. If anybody knows how I can increase my speed please let me know...Bye, thanks

I will be lucky to make 600 MB on torrents in a night, its usually in the 400 - 500 range. Also the torrents I download seem to have a decent amount of seeders / leechers. I guess anything over 10 connections should give a good speed. anyway i will try my hand at some other clients and see how they perform.

will try it out and see what speed I get, btw what do set the upload limit at? they say that the download speed is proportional to the upload speed, that means I have to set it as high as possible, this true?

cap the upload to around 70-75% of the max..i would cap it at 20-21kBps..you need some of the upload to sustain a high download....

hey chicmagnet, have a question for you. I am also trying my luck with torrentstorm. can you tell me how do you forward the ports for it on the router. Also do I change the default ports in torrentstorm from 6881 - 6889 to something else. please let me know about this.

did you need a static ip for portfowarding or did you manage using your existing dynamic one.portfowarding.com asks for a static ip.
