      I too have been using utorrent and found that the download speeds are worse than pathetic. I'm on the Sky Connect as they havent unbundled the excange round here yet, and get worse download speeds than when I orginally had 1Mb Broadband.
      Currently I have one thing downloading there are 5 seeds which amazingly I'm connected to them all with a download speed of 11.2kB/s and an upload of 19.5KB/s
      I have done all the Port Forwarding and still cant get anything like what I thought should be happening.

      How can I get better speeds? Its doing my head in now!

      It seems likely that there is traffic shaping taking place on Connect. The only way round this is to try encrypting the traffic. You need to use a client which supports this.

      Thanks Saturday, Can you recomend another client that would be able to overcome this very annoying issue?

      Also I have an issue with setting up a wireless network, I have followed the Wizards and still I can't get my 2 computers to talk to each other, with being new to this site could you point me in the right direction...

      Thanks

      Re computers talking, I found that by going to Control Panel, Users add users and added the names of my other two laptops they could then file and printer share as they all had administrative rights to each machine. You will need to add them to a network...mine is called 'home', and also I could map drives to each

      @Jez,

      utorrent has this feature. Go in to options - preferences - bittorent - protocol encryption set this to enabled and allowincoming legacy connections.


      Then see if it has any effects!

      If you haven't changed the default ports from 6881 - 6889, then you will likely be having throttling problems.

      Have a look at the Tutorials quicklink and try Azureus.

      As Amaboknaai says changing to a higher port over 10000 should help too!

      Do you think they're using port throttling rather than traffic shaping then?

      That's about as effectual as locking the door but leaving the windows wide open
