before the upgrade from Verizon online DSL to Verizon Fios, my bittorrent download rate was 180 kb/s. but after the upgrade, the download rate for bittornado is still around 180-190 kb/s. i couldnt get the download to go any faster. and yes, the color is green so no port forwarding is needed. can someone help. thanx in advance.

Torrent technology is based on seeds. You can only download as fast as the person's upload connection. If the torrent is not well seeded, you can't expect much speed wise. If you have service pack 2 installed, your downloads will suffer (even with the connection patch).

With SP2 installed and patched up, I would get an extremely low connection total, and my speeds were terrible. After removing it, my speeds went back up.

These are snaps of my settings that I get great speeds with (562 kB/s before

I would be lucky if I got 30 kB/s. I did see closer to 70 kB/s sometimes, but that still sucked compared to what I used to get.

SP2 is ok. Then I thought, I have a hardware firewall along with Kaspersky Personal Pro, plus the normal adware/spyware remover, why not uninstall SP2 since I'm already well protected? Once I did that, my speeds returned to normal.  :D

If you have it installed, you might want to beef up your security, and then remove it. It's not 100% mandatory right now. Plus, it seems to be aimed at the novice users that can't really protect themselves on the net. A person that is more technically advanced with their system probably doesn't run it anyhow.

Without SP2:

hey guys, i finally found the solution to my problem. when i went to preferences, i noticed that i set my max download rate to 170 kb/s. thats why it wouldnt go any further. haha im so clumsy. but thank you all for trying to help me out. i appreciated it. hey organ, i think the service pack 2 isnt the reason why your download is so slow. it might me something else cuz i also have SP2 and my download is going above 400 kb/s now.
