Hi, maybe you should try µtorrent. http://www.utorrent.com
Its very lightweight and simple. Doesnt hog your PC like bitcomet, azureus etc.
Just remember when using torrents, you should set your upload limit to its highest, as this in turn will determine download speeds.
For example, I have 10mb ntl broadband, so I set my upload speed to 65kbs. Also only allocate say 4 upload slots per torrent, too many slots will also have an adverse effect on your speed. Setting your speed to low also wont help, as the combined speed for the torrent (all users speed added together) will also drop, and users will be allocated less in return.
With 10mb Broadband. I have possible speeds of 1.14mb/sec. This does not mean that I always will hit this speed. Commonly, it trakes a while for my speed to rise. It normally starts of at around 40kbs, and then it will rise to anywhere up to 700kbs. Again be patient.
Torrents take time to pick up on speeds sometimes. It depends on the amount of seeders & peers. A torrent with plenty of seeds, say 100 and 20 peers will go far quicker to one with 2 seeds and 50 peers. Patience is the the key.
Remember you shouldn't have too many torrents running at one time. 3 or 4 max or even less, will help you download faster.
Dont use a common port like 6881. This port has been targeted by ISP as it used to be a common port for p2p networks. I use 49155.
Sometimes your firewall may be blocking the bittorrent client or port. So check the program control on your firewall and make sure that your bittorrent client is not blocked. Foe example I use Zonealarm, so I go into program control in ZA and i make sure ZA hasn't got a "red x".
This may or may not help. It helped me and I've been using bittorrent for as long as its been around. Hopefully it may help some of you.
REMEMBER BE PATIENT.
