why are my DL speeds so slow

I just dont get it. I recently got Verizon DSL. Its a 768kb connection. Every since last night my download speeds have been very slow. I have the correct ports opened. I can surf the net fast, can even play my xbox online fine. But when i am running Azureus or any other torrent client the speeds seem very slow. When I download files through my browser its fine.. just with torrents

Re: why are my DL speeds so slow

well, you're not downloading anything from TTD - thats your problem.
how slow is slow - Ive jumped on torrents with 50 seeders (at other locations) and had the same issue.
its a 'who your client knows' issue - do a speedtest

Re: why are my DL speeds so slow

well for instance I just had Azureus open. I was downloading something from etree and was connected to 28 seeders and my DL speed woul fluctuate from 50 to 2KB.. its really frustrating. It would speed up then go back to a crawl then speed up to like 30.. then back down to like 2...and so on and so on

cant help you there - hate to say it
this is when you break out the Fluke equipment and test the copper lines in the residence.

Re: why are my DL speeds so slow

now I think its just something up with etree. I stopped that torrent and started to download something from lossless legs and its working fine

and i do suspect this house needs new phone lines. These are old



now if i can only figure out why my wireless connection drops out sometimes

I did that.. my speed tests were fine. But like I said.. I think something was up with etree the other day.. cuz its fine now.

And they finally upped my speed today. Now I am getting 2.6MB/s down and about 90-100KB/s up

Re: why are my DL speeds so slow

sometimes it's the ppl you are connected to. Just because you are connected to 28 ppl doesn't mean they aren't also downloading 4 shows apiece. This cuts into their bandwidth and you feel the pain of it.
