      speed

      iv been on a speed test site and i got the following results

      Download Speed: 1619 kbps (202.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 572 kbps (71.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

      but i can download a test torrent and get speeds of upto 600kbs so why is it saying i can only download at that speed ??

      Those stats are okay not fantastic but shouldnt cause any issues, you are synced at 7.6 and it sounds to me like the speed test site you used was on a busy server and hence the slower speed, as your torrents where working fine.

      perhaps try a speed test at a diffrent site eg Giganews.com which is a fast server.
