i just set up a network in my house. i use a cable modem with a netgear wireless B router. i am currently hooked to the router and am not wireless but i still recieve rates of only 3 kb/sec max on bittorrent. on limewire i can get about 15. i know when i was on my universities connection they used a packeteer which just flat out killed any filesharing problems. could this be the case with my cable provider or is there something i can do to fix this problem through my router.

1. this is probably a no-go post beucase of the bit torrent...that is my guess

2. make sure you forward the ports correctly in the router and the program

I'm not sure if bit torrent is a bad word or not. I don't think it is at least. It's what you use it for that is questionable.

Don't know about the problem though. I'd probably screw him up worse that he is now...just wanted to talk I guess.

1 - This question belongs in Internet Truckstop. I moved your thread over for you.

2 - I'm gonna go ahead and assume you're using BT to get Linux ISO images. That being said, use BitTornado. It has more options and lets you see what kind of speed you're getting seeded at.

(1) Bittorrent is fine ... it is simply a file-sharing p2p application, with many legitimate uses. Gentoo, for example, has torrents for distributing their ISOs, and there is a wealth of anime available which is not licensed in North America ... therefore, legally downloadable.

(2) You need to forward the appropriate ports from your router to your PC. There is an excellent FAQ that you should read for more info.

thanks again. i fixed the port forwarding problem. i tried a torrent of doom 3(dont ban me, it was for testing purposes, i bought the game) and it got about 50 kb/sec. tried a file from animesuki.com and it didnt get much over 4. im starting to think my cable provider is throttling it somehow. i went to dslreport.com and did the speed test, i got 2438 so the speed shouldnt be a problem. either im really dumb and somehow screwed up the port forwarding or soemthing else is the problem. still tryin to figure it out...

You are getting different speeds because you are downloading from different people. Anime is generally slower than a very popular and illegal game, so it stands to reason you'd see much higher bandwidth.

BTW ... testing is not a good enough excuse. You are still sharing copyrighted material, and you will get in some serious ca-ca here if you do that.

Edit your post. There is no reason to mention WHAT you are downloading, and you are putting this forum at risk.
