      Angry Problems With Torrents

      Hey ive had sky for about hmm... a month or 2 and ive been noticing that my torrent speed on (Azureus) isn't going any higher than 30 KB per second and average is under 10 KB per second, tried all the tutoriols for forwarding ports but still no luck, ive even unistalled Azureus tried another software for Torrents and still the same happens, ive even tried to change the ports... same thing happens, realy starting to annoy me, i have connect (meant to be upgrading auto) but i can only get 8MB because my line doesnt support it here are my stats

      System Up Time 24:42:45
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 2101841 2406453 0 5254 16335 24:42:24
      LAN 10M/100M 4677 0 0 8 0 24:42:43
      WLAN 11M/54M 2380942 2128003 0 16687 5606 24:42:33


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.0 db 20.0 db
      Noise Margin 14.8 db 21.0 db

      This is getting me so angry because it takes more than a day to download files that are 300 MB + on torrents.. realy realy annoying, is there any one who can help me. also i noticed on the site (Netgears) they have a Firmware download availible higher than the one that i got with my router, should i upgrade or not, i read some where if you upgrade its against skys T&C what you guys think... get back to me please thanks alot for your help!

      Oh and also heres the nearest Exchange from my house http://www.samknows.com/broadband/ex...hp?ecode=LVNET should i ring sky and tell them to take me to max? thanks

      Sorry but you're on Connect which appears to have some form of traffic shaping for torrents and P2P.

      The only thing you can do is use a torrent client which supports encrypted traffic and select enforced - also use a high number non standard port.

      You may find this increases your speeds.

      PS. your profile says you are on Base. Please change it to avoid confusion.

      I use Azureus too and read on here

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/showt...?t=5673&page=2

      that if you turn on the encryption to RC4 and check the 2 boxes below it works. I`m now getting speeds of upto 150kbps.(not great I know, but better than nothing. I was seeing speeds of 250 on my old 2 meg wanadoo connection)
