    dont know what activated this weird issue but out of sudden one day i notice that my download speed has gone down to 1kbps and sticking arnoud the same speed. been a while, i tried some fix given on net but couldnt get it working.
    i have been using avast free antivirus for ages and dont think this could trigger the frustation.

    any soul try to help me put here?

    P.S. i am not downloading illegal stuff guys ;)

    your service provider might think you are so has capped or slowed down your connection. do a speed check.

    I'd doubt tht MrDJ. although i still be doing the speed check and shall let you know. But i seriously doubt that.
    could it be some update on my anti virus or some messed up setting in my torrent client?
    i uninstalled and installed and reinstalled and chose a new client over bit torrent as well but nothing worked. :(

    Try Open Office, if it's still slow, you have problems which could be a number of things. Is Bitorrent the same as Utorrent with a green check mark bottom right?

    I have problems with a batched anime download, it peaks at 18kB/s, but when I download a single episode, it can eat 25-45kB/s usually

    Have anyone resolved this problem?

    It could be a number of things:
    - Not enough seeders
    - Throttling
    - Issue with your ISP, modem and/or router

    If you want to use Utorrent, I can toss you my settings that tend to give most downloads a significant speed boost.

    For the record, I download TV shows that air on my already paid Satellite network that I have missed or want to re-watch a classic from the 80-90's and good streams aren't available.

    seeds, a lot. u wud get those files with MAXIMUM no of seeds :) evenb thousands. now dont let us get onto the ligality of those torrents ;)

    i'd be very much thankful for you to help me out with your settings. and sinces the issue is not with the seeds, i am confused what may have triggered this. apart from the torrents, my normal download i.e. youy tube vids, files etc. downloads at normal speed. :(

    @Hiker, yeah thats the utorrent you r talking about. i got tht as well, when my bit torrent started throwing tantrum. but same story. only colour of the UI changes, from purple to lime green :) and i'll try my hand on openoffice stuff today and shall update you guys.
    its like nothing on internet if torrent aint working :(

    Connection:
    Port - 45682

    Bandwidth:
    1. Maximum upload rate = 10
    2. Maximum download rate = 0
    3. Global maximum connections = 2329
    4. Maximum number of connected peers per torrent = 1890
    5. Number of upload slots per torrent = 14

    BitTorrent:
    Everything check marked except for limit local peer. Protocol disabled.

    Queuing:
    1. Maximum number of active torrents = 60
    2. Maximum number of active downloads = 63
    3. Everything else 0 except for limit the upload rate = 4

    Advanced:
    1. bt.allow_same_ip = True
    2. dhl.rate = 2
    3. gui.show_notorrents_node = False
    4. rss.update_interval = 20

    ---

    And there you are. After entering the new settings reboot Utorrent and you should notice a speed increase within 10 minutes. Works with most people. The info is from a "utorrent speed" video on YT I watched last year. I tried several different settings videos (about 6-7 top view counts) and this one worked out the best.

    General Message:
    If your intention is games/software, remember to support developers if you enjoy their products :) I'm a firm believer of trying a game before you buy it (unless you know you'll already like it - sequels for example) as long as your intentions are honest and you remove the product from your hard drive after trying it for a day or two before committing 60$ since most games do not offer demo's. If you like it, buy it.
