    I got a response to this earlier but had another question. How do I set
    the DL/UL speed for Bittorrent. I did manage to set my D-Link router to
    open the necessary ports but my download speed is still about ranges
    from 35 to 50 Kib/s and upload about 10 to 15 Kib/s. That seems a little
    slower than what I have been hearing from others. I have a DSL
    connection which is about 512 MB I believe.
    How what could I adjust to increase this, earlier someone mentioned
    that he sets his DL vrs. UL speeds, how can I do that.

    Check to see if the MTU and RWIN are optimized for the DSL modem.
    MTU-1492 RWIN-32767
    Tweak test:

    Make any recomended changes with their "DrTCP", reboot and test again.

    Test your speed before, and after optimizing:

    From what I hear it is also dependent on what you a sharing also.
    It your not sharing anything then you get lower speeds. 512 Mega Bit
    DSL will get you around... 80KB/sec I believe. But good luck on
    reaching that. :) I have a 3 Mega bit cable connection and rarely
    see anything beyond 500KB/sec.Unless of course I'm transferring
    directly from PC to PC then it's 1000-1400.

  4. I take it you are using the official bittorent which doesn't allow you to
    set much.
    Download the shadow experimental one from
    Its a lot better and allows you to set your max upload speed
