Windows 7 limiting downloads

Hi guys, I used to have a Windows Xp operating system, my maximum download speed there is 150kbps, but when I installed Windows 7 Ultimate thing changed, my download speed (torrent) is only averaging 30-40kbp/s, and the weird thing here is, it is CONSTANT at that speed, seeders/leechers is not a problem because the torrent file (an mmorpg) has no leechers and the last time I downloaded it (xp) I was at full blast (150kbp/s) I tweaked already my windows 7 but to no avail, can someone help me? Thanks.

PS. I use D-Link dir 300 router.

how did you measure your download speed? thru utorrent only? try measuring it thru online speedtest. then we can eliminate the possibility of utorrent being the problem.

Are you shure your ISP isn't throttling you?

I'm on DSL in Canada and every day at 5:00 my download speeds go for a total crap (25kBps) until 2:00am (suddenly 500kBps).... The ISP admits to it and there's been news coverage of the issue of over a year now.

The quick way to find out is to set your own download limit just under your plan limit (eg. 5mbps plan set uTorrent to 475KBps) and you will see it on the speed graph.

Compare that to UFTP's suggestion and you'll have a pretty clear picture...

Contact your ISP and ask them if they are throttling your connection...goto Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and check your download speed...
