Ktorrent is downlosding very slow

Asked by sgr-a on 2007-08-24

I reduced the upload to 1 KB/s and increased memory to high. Ktorrent is downloading at an average 31 KB/s. I downed other thing at the same time an they downloaded at over 200 KB/s.

What could be going wrong?

Thanks

reducing the upload speed of a bittorrent client with effect your download speed negativly. idealy you should set your upload speed to be a few kb less than your maximum upload speed. so for a connection that lets you go at 200kb/s like yours i would set it to around 30-35kb/s upload speed

--gord
