Update 2019: since a lot of people these days seem to be having difficulties with uTorrent, you may also consider trying different torrent clients such as Tixati, qBittorrent, Transmission, Deluge, etc. The settings in these clients should not differ all too much from the settings shown below; but in the future we may come up with new guides, for different (other) torrent clients!


A.k.a. we don't recommend using uTorrent anymore, in the year 2019!

Hello everyone,

As promised, here's a little guide on how to configure your Bittorrent client in order to achieve high(er) download speeds in your Bittorrent client. For this guide I've used µTorrent, which I highly recommend using. The instructions will be pretty much the same for all other clients. Some options might have another name though.

The first thing to do is not extremely important, but it's generally recommended to uncheck the Send detailed info when checking for updates (always anonymous) option.

As for the Connection tab, check everything as shown below:
How to speed up/fix µTorrent downloads. [GUIDE] 210
DO NOT check Randomize port each start and be sure to actually FORWARD the port that you've entered in the Port used for incoming connections box. This guide doesn't describe how to do that, since it's different for all routers. Try this website though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm
Or feel free to contact us if you need personal help, we'd love to help!

Let's move on to the Bandwidth tab. Change the settings as shown below:
How to speed up/fix µTorrent downloads. [GUIDE] 45263410
It's very tempting to set a Maximum upload rate, but keep in mind that this will actually slow down your download speed 9 out of 10 times! You 'aint seeding, you 'aint succeeding, as we like to say.
Also uncheck the Apply rate limit to transport overhead and Apply rate limit to uTP connections options.

In the BitTorrent tab, turn off the Enable bandwidth management [uTP] and Limit local peer bandwidth options. Also be sure to set outgoing Protocol Encryption to Forced and check Allow incoming legacy connections, as shown below.

Last but not least, in the Queueing tab, you might want to change the following settings:

It has nothing to do with your actual download speed, but remember: sharing is caring!


I hope this guide has helped you! If not, feel free to open a new topic in the correct Forum, so we can provide personal help.
Also keep in mind that Port forwarding is very important too, so do that FIRST!

Have fun!

You can speed up by Call your ISP and ask them upgrade your line.

Yes, but we prefer free alternatives, of course.
Besides, this will get the fullest out of your current connection, for which you pay.

A seedbox is a dedicated high- speed private server for downloading and uploading files. 

See here.

I believe it is like a proxy for torrents.

Download speed is up between 700-1000 kb/s and upload speed is up 400-800 kb/s o_o Never in my time of torrenting have I seen it that high. Thank you! Port Forwarding was a hassle because I never spent any time learning how to do it 'till now. (If I actually did it correctly, That is) Anyways, Thank you again Smile

Edit: Just check it again and it was up at 2 mb/s. I seriously can't thank you enough.

Hello,

Change all the settings like they are shown in the pictures ! So look at the parts of the pictures that are marked red; then open your uTorrent and find the option that is shown in the picture.

Then just change it to the number that is shown, in the screenshots above.

The maximum upload rate is 0 (as shown in the picture).

And what is the manufacturer of your router ? And can you also give us the model number ?

Hello there,

Perhaps you can find more information here: http://community.vodafone.com.au/t5/Mobile-Broadband/Port-forwarding-not-working-for-me-pocketwifi/td-p/134612
Port forwarding is mostly for upload speed, but it's good to do anyway.

If that link didn't help (please do actually read it), please open a new topic here: http://games4theworld.forumotion.com/f24-software , so we can try to assist you. Thank you!

Hmmm... I'm not sure, don't the options look pretty much the same?
