Re: Download Speed

The aggregate AMOUNT of data you upload isn't the problem, it's the rate of your upload speed. If it's too high (more than 80% of your total upload capability) you'll choke the downstream ability of your client. Uploading a LOT of data is good, just not too fast.

If you don't know your ISP's upload cap, you can run a speed test. Google "DSL Speed Test" to find a free service to check your connection limits. Stop your client temporarily and run the test. Then you'll know where to set your client upload speed limit.
