Top Tips to increase bittorent download Speed

The latest file sharing protocol bittorrent has modified everything when it comes to file sharing. It is a nice platform for downloading large files. Sharing of files include movies, iso images and MP3 songs. Bittorent is mainly famous for illegal file sharing .
The Bittorrent system can be slow at times due to heavy traffic. so let us tweak bittorrent sharing program a little bit.
There are a lot of different bittorrent clients that you can download. I think the best are BitCommet and uTorrent. Here is a few tips to speed up uTorrent Client. Similar can be implemented on any other torrent clients ,which you are using.


Step 1: Increase TCP connections
You need to increase the number of TCP connections that are allowed at max.Windows XP Service Pack 2 came with the number of allowed open connections to 10. This is to stop any piece of spyware(in our case bittorent client even) from totally taking over your internet connection. TCP connection allowed should be 50 for optimal performance. The best way to increase the maximum number of connections is to apply patch that is available at www.lvllord.de. A nice way to fix this is to download this patch .
The little tweak to the torrent client works great in certain times. If you’re using uTorrent go to Options menu then Preferences. In the Preferences go the Advanced Options. In the advanced options change the net.max_halfopen connections to 80. In the same section change the max half open tcp connections to 80. Once your done click on OK and you are all set. This tweak will let the maximum TCP connection available for the bittorrent client. Now start downloading you’ll realize a little difference in the download speed. Port forwarding technique is more effective than this.
A third point of interest is that some “windows updates” revert your tweaked tcp connections back to 10. So it’s wise to check this every now and then. You can check this by going to (in windows xp) Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > System… Look for event 4226 (sort by event).
If there are a lot of daily occurrences it’s likely that the max amount of half-open tcp connections was set back to 10. Or you’re infected with some nasty spy ware…

Step 2:Torrent Client Configuration
In order to apply these tips you must know your maximum up- and download speed. You can test your bandwidth over here (stop all download activity while testing).
Settings 1-4 can be found in the options, settings or preference tab of most torrent clients.
1. Maximum upload speed

Probably the most important setting there is. Your connection is (sort of) like a pipeline, if you use you maximum upload speed there’s not enough space left for the files you are downloading. So you have to cap your upload speed.
Use the following formula to determine your optimal upload speed…
80% of your maximum upload speed
so if your maximum upload speed is 40 kB/s, the optimal upload rate is 32kB/s But keep seeding!

what to do for this problem..."Internet Download Manager has not been registered for 30days, trial period is over and IDM is existing"....i'm not able to download anything....


You basically have 3 options.....remove the program and download normally, pay the $30 or go and download a cracked version for free take a look here http://thepiratebay.org/search/Internet%20Download%20Manager%20/0/99/300 theres heaps of cracked ones and the latest version or you probably just need the keycode. I dont know whether youve ever used torrent files before but they are just a very small file which tracks the people who share files for you to download with a program like Bittorrent i use www.bittorrent.com its a totally free program.

my pc cnt play downloaded videos


You can try downloading and installing VideoLAN Client as your video player. VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player andframework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD,VCD, and various streaming protocols. It plays pretty much everything without the need for tracking down codecs.

I hope this helps

Hello,
If you want to download such a software for free, follow the steps below: 1.Install a torrent protocol client on your PC.Check out www.bittorrent.com 2.Search for 'Microsoft Office 2003 torrent free download' on Google. 3.After running the query, this was my best hit from www.kickasstorrents.com.The link is http://www.kickasstorrents.com/microsoft-office-professional-2003-sp3-integrato-ita-t3469307.html and I selected it as it has the highest number of seeders, and the comments on the torrent file report that it's working. 4.You may want to familiarise yourself with the bittorrent protocol by going to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent and learn how the bittorrent P2P protocol works.
Do have a great time ahead.Yours sincerely,

how do i reprogram a 2wire 2071-A


Do you have your instructions? I can tell you but it would be easier for you if you can just look at the guide and take your time. You can do a reset and then reprogram. If that's all you want to know I can do that. Would you want me to get you athe manual or tell you specifically how to do something?
