Hey, sorry if there are other threads like this, but i thought that solutions may differ depending on the software and hardware installed, so i created a new thread.
anyways,im experiencing really slow speeds when downloading torrents. i use bitcomet to download torrents and i get an average speed of about 12kbps and a max speed of 40kbps, and i only ever get 40 once in a blue moon.
im pretty sick and tired of these speeds because im sure i can get faster but something is holding me back.
i have a tiscalli 1mb broadband connection, which i connect to using my speedtouch 580 router and an ethernet cable.
i have windows xp profession (no sp’s) installed with the firewall enabled and zonealarm.
does anyone know why i am getting such slow speeds? is it hardware or software issues, or have i just got the wrong settings and options enabled?
and does anyone know how i can get faster download speeds? what do i have to do to get 100kbps? thats my average speed from websites, so surely i should be able to get that from bitcommet.
i hope you all can help me out, i would be extremely greatful.
thank you very much
