I have started using utorrent few days ago, and it is a good program, however I had one torrent that I wanted to download but it has no seeds at all and only 2 peers, my downloading speed was "25b/s", which was incredibly slow, comparing to my average download speed is 48kb/s, a huge difference.

are there any ways to download the torrent abit faster?

apart from that, utorrent is a good program for downloading torrents, believe me, I've compared it to Bitcomet, Bittorrent and Azureus, from dowload speed to the easiest to use.

I need help!!

If it is anything like any other p2p application (if I am understanding your problem), the peers set the upload speed, and has nothing to do with you at all. If it is really a program that you need, then you will just have to wait for it.

Good Choice :P

Simple Answer is No.


You get what your given.
What you gottta remember is in my book there are THREE types of peer
  • The Seeder until nobody wants it :) Who wants to Up his ratio
  • The Solo :inlove:
  • The Grabber aka Leech :cool:
1. Now the seeder is a good sort they'll seed ANYTHING just to get thier ratio up, only problem is if they seed 30 files on a 256 upload that means each file is getting a % (Not gonna try figure it :flowers: )

2. The Solo there the best they'll get one file and once they have it will seed JUST that file on a 256 up better speed for you donloading it off 25 of them :trumpet:

3. The Grabber :) :) :thumbsup:


Having said that some torrent apps Do adjust your download according to the speed your upload i downloaded a patch once and when i restricted my upload the download slowed.

Are you behind a firewall or router. I know that if you have a router you can try forwarding a few ports... Go to Options>Speed Guide

BTW where do you guys get your torrents from I have been having a hard time finding a good site.

It sounds like you are indeed behind a network router. You need to open up some ports to get more peers, which may get you faster download speeds. Almost everything you need to know is here:

Its a lot of reading, but by the time you are done, you will be an expert!!! :thumbsup:

Klinkaroo, you can just google "torrents" and get a whole bunch of sites...be warned, though...a lot of those torrent sites offer bootlegged content...you'll be up to your armpits in it. :flowers:

Kilngaroo WWW.TORRENTSPY.COM is a really good site that offers good and health and seeded and peered seeds. To the original post, unloaded, try using different programs IE LIMEWIRE,BEARSHARE to get your desired video/mp3 file/etc.

are there any patches that can disable the restrictions on downloading while uploading? Because when I use Utorrent, the download can slowdown according to my uploading speed sometimes.

Please be aware that a lot of these tools bring adware / spyware with them...
