I've been getting frustrated with the slow download speeds I've been getting recently so I started researched how to speed up bitcomet, port fowarding was one of the suggestions. It helped speed up my downloads but it still wasn't as fast as I was hoping, still seemed likeit wasn't downloading from multiple clients. In one of the tutorials it mentioned the seeders should be listed as Local and Remote in the "Initiation" section of the "peers" section for each specific file. Unfortunately the seeders are only listed as Local.
Now on to my problem, I tried to install Azureus (sp?) , thinking it might download quicker then Bitcomet, however upon bootup the screen prompted me that the portfowarding was unable to find the specified port (not the terminology, but you get what I mean) . It seems like during the installation process the port forawding was changed/cancelled/disabled? I think something was disabled when azerus was installing.
So I uninstalled Azureus and whet back to Bitcomet however... I am now getting terrible download speeds, if any at all. I checked the settings in the router and they are unchanged....
What I have tried to fix this:
-gone through the port fowarding process again using the same port, hoping it would reset it.... The process includes checking the router, ensuring I have a static IP, and checking the settings in Bitcomet
-I have Re-Installed Bitcomet
-I have tried changing the port number and going through the process again, thinking I somehow screwed up the first port number I used :doh:
Now I've got typical crappy download speeds and I've tried to check my port fowarding through a site like this---> http://btfaq.com/natcheck.pl Not sure if it is a legit way of checking but I keep geting a failure when I check.
I need some help! Can someone help me understand what I've done and help me fix it?
Thanks A bunch everybody..
