K.. i'm gonna try to get this right.. but I'm newly interested in wtf goes on with my internet connection and I'm having trouble finding answers to questions I don't even know how to ask.
I have a 20mb/s connection via comcast. ~2mb/s up.
using utorrent, I have never seen my GLOBAL download rate (multiple torrents running at once) exceed 1.5mb/s (say, 2mb/s to be generous).. even when toggling the speed guide and port forwarding.
20mb/s is extremely fast.. but I kinda feel like I would be just as happy using a 5mb/s connection.. as it would appear that I'll never be able to actually utilize much more than that..
what am I missing? Do I need to do more in-depth forwarding and tweaking of my router to get these things to fly?
