Me too Hugsie - nice problem to have though isn't it

It's great, to be honest I have found with utorrent that if you are on a good torrent plenty of seeds with fat pipes you will max out your download with very little tweaking.
I have no problems uploading either.

Thanks to your messages I went through the tutorials/info etc. again and fixed my problem - it was the port number. The port number was set to the default of 6881 and was connectable - I set it to 56881, changed my router to let it through and my downloads are now storming down

Still Having Problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, this is my first post, so I apologise in advanced for any forum etiquette I might not know about.
I am have the same problem as the original poster of this thread. I have used the uTorrent tutorial and I have followed it step for step, but I the problem is still there.
The download will start get to about 8KB/s for about 1 minute and then it just stops and does not move from 0KB/s.
I have done all of the port forwarding stuff and enabled uTorrent in my ZoneAlarm firewall.
My connection has been active for 5 days and I getting a constant 8MB connection so far.
Any advice would be gratefully accepted at this point as having a 16MB connection and not being able to use Bit Torrent clients (or rapidshare) is pointless.

Open up utorent then select options then speed guide. On the speed guide page click "test if port is forwarded properly".
Do you get:
OK! Port xxxxx is open and accepting connections.
You will be able to receive incoming BitTorrent connections.

Thanks for your quick response Saturday.
uTorrent has confirmed that my port (51445) is forwarded properly.
any other ideas?

Hmm. As a test, turn off ZoneAlarm temporarily and try another torrent.
Do you have any other connection controlling applications running e.g. Windows defender, livecare, xp firewall, Peerguardian?
Lastly, make sure when you test that you choose two or three torrents with large number of peers and seeds and let them run for 10 minutes or so.

I have just switched to Azureus 2.5 and installed something called safepeer and it seems to be working for now.
Will let you know if this changes.

Ok - Azureus is a good client. Safepeer is similar to PeerGuardian but works as a plugin.
Still curios why utorrent was giving problems. I've found it to be excellent. Must be something in your setup?
When you've finished playing have a look elsewhere on the forum to look for hints how you might get better than 8meg out of your 16meg connection (clue: it's all about noise and attenuation). Also, make sure you've optimised your TCP/IP settings.
