You should use the Java Client P2P much faster than those who don't use that type one. Where you going to get seeds of that many. I can hit 2.5 down if there are 450 seeders on avg file size of 300MB would take only 1-2m

Yes - no problems with that program.. You need UPnP router, have XP or Vista (default) have UPnP Service and Discovery Service enabled and started to bind to your PC, where it shows up in the system tray near the clock and also in My Network Connections (the router).. NIC should be set to the MAX 10/100 (100TX), WAN should be set to the MAX 10/100 (100TX) if you have the feature on the router apply it. Eventhough you're using UPnP on software and on XP and the Router. Still have ports forwarding enabled for the IP you are using for BT. In the AZ software I set the connections buffer from 4KB to 32KB.

Make sure under Network Connections you change the bind provider order to your Microsoft Client Services. To get to this click on Advanced then Advance Settings (default Windows Terminal is set to launch first then Microsoft Client then Web Client) You want it to be Microsoft Client, Web Client then Terminal)

SP2 make sure you have the TCP patch for Max Server / Max Connections
I have more info on my blog below will take you to my Network Tweaks.

uTorrent still does peer exchange even for some paused torrents. You can see the number of seeders and leechers update at regular intervals. Same while seeding: You're just downloading peer info, not data.

Regarding the lack of connection to seeders, peers may be rejecting you because your upload isn't sufficient. Try increasing your upload cap and reducing the number of files that you're downloading simultaneously.

As a last resort, right click on the torrent and choose 'Update Tracker' near the bottom. This will force uTorrent to try to connect to more peers. Whether they will send data to you is not guaranteed of course.

i generally can get connected to at least 2k seeds at a time (torrent dependent), but maybe it's because i use a linux router that can track 10240 connections at a time.

the bottleneck at some point in time is usually your router.

Aiya .. torrenting Is a very troublesome thing one .... I only torrent for anime (OOPS)

IMO torrents are never to be used for main things ... http still the way to go for me.

uTorrent is fast If you guys know how to configure properly. Must untick UPnP and port forward.

enabling upnp works fine.

if your router doesn't and you left it on without forwarding ports,

you ought to be ashamed really.
