When I hit Post Reply, the hospital WIFI shut me out. Anyways I'm home but going to sleep soon.

This may sound stupid but try running Disk Clean-up, then open Command Prompt (run as administrator) and type: defrag c: -w

Better way to defrag =P

Also try looking through programs and disabling "Check for updates automaticaly".

Other then that I have no other advice, sorry. Only thing I could recommend further is getting a new PCI Ethernet card from Bestbuy, Walmart or Newegg.

Good luck either way. =)

The upload speed is the most crucial setting.

It should be about 80% of what is available to you - so yours should be set at 28. There is some room to move on this so I would start at 30 and play around from there. Remember as you test to give each setting as much as 30mins or more to observe what is going down.

your global max connections is imo way out. you are simply creating extra work for utorrent. I have mine set at 200 and allow it to download 4 simultaneously. Max connected peers i have at 50 but thats probably too high but I doubt it matters much.

Upload slots per torrent - I have 4.

I get very good speeds up and down - my up is usually near the max (which is great my ratio stays good), my down of course varies but a well seeded torrent I can regularly get 90% of what is theoretically possible.

I presume you have forwarded a port and set a static internal IP address. If not portforward.com will help you with that.

Also if you have the bucks uTorrent Turbo Booster definitely works to increase download speed. I was shocked that it did but it has a dramatic affect on about 50% of torrents especially ones that have difficulty finding seeds. I don't know how it does that, but it is really remarkable to see a Torrent double or triple its speed.
However you must have things working properly to start with.

Good point

I've been using 1000/250 for 3 years now & it's never caused an issue. It's in fact helped my speed especialy when not many seeds are available.

Windows 7 32-bit; no 64 coz its a P4 478
 
 

The reason he(OP) gets poor speeds is coz he lives in India (THAT ISP in speedtest is a big Indian company)(I've been there also once because some relatives are there... I once looked through indian broadband packages... THEY WERE ALL PRICEY!!! and having packages less than 1.0 Mbit also u pay a LOT..... Broadband isn't affordable so people get the lower packages (like OP)... to OP: if you don't mind can i PM you a special torrent file [should max out your speed+a very fast torrent client (modded bitcomet)] via PM?
