Monsta's Bittorrent Quickie Tweak

After much tinkering (more like simply punching in some arbitrary value), one’s bittorent downloads are currently clocked at a maximum of 80 kB/s and dropping at most to 70 kB/s.

As you can see, this surpasses the rumoring download cap implemented by our oh so unreliable internet service provider which we shall not give the honor to be mentioned here considering its despicable bad track record of performance.

Anyhow, here’s what works for me:

1. The latest BitComet as the client

2. Under Preference => Advance => Connection =>
-Set maximum connection to 200 (tinker with this values as they give the biggest impact)

3. Under Preference => Advance => Connection =>
-Set global maximum upload slots to 10

4. Under Preference => Connection
-Set global max upload rate to 11 kB/s

5. When the menu that appears right after your .torrent file has been transferred
-On the second tab, check the “enable public DHT network

6. Give it an hour or so and depending on how healthy the tracker is, you could be reaching that 60 kB/s line.

N/b- that before such settings, the current download rate was at a maximum of 24 kB/s.

Yet, if your software/hardware Firewall is on; then such tweaks have no use whatsoever. Your only option then would be to disable it which if you are using a normal modem, to do so, under:

Preference => Advance => Connection =>
-just check on the "Remove Nat/firewall on windows xp" thingy

If you are using a router, then you have to do port forwarding but the steps are really specific according to your router’s model. Leave your router's model no. or name. Maybe I could post up the portforwading steps for it.

That's about it; hope it helps.
