      BitTorrent Download speeds

      I recently got sky, aprox 3 weeks ago. At first I had problems with dropping connections and slow web page loading but these were easily solved. I normaly use Utorrent for my torrent downloads and I used it with my old ISP fine but with sky I can bareley get a connection, the max speed I can get is 2kbps I dont know that the problem is. I switched to azureus and the speeds are amazing, I get around 200kbps constantly on downlods so far so. Now the problem is that azureus uses quite a lot of system resources and the machine im running it on is an old P3 it realy bogs down when Ive got 2-3 downloads running. I'd much rather use Utorrent so what could be the problem that is preventing Utorrent from getting decent dload speeds.


      thnx in advance

      I use uTorrent, No problems here, In the uTorrent PortStatus, Is it all GREEN?

      Also, Have you forwarded the ports in McAfee and Windows/Mac Firewall.
