To find out youre internet speed;
www.speedtest.net
(make sure you dont have any applications that use youre internet. this is to get the correct speed)

You can set a limit for what the torrent can download for.

Right click it and find out how
(i dont know what client you use)

    I just realized you asked for the modem speed, and not the internet..
    usually if you type this in youre adress bar it will stand somewhere

    10.0.0.1 or youre ip

    Hi,



    Did you try "Port Farwarding" ? By doing port farwarding the torrent, it would be fast,



    Thanks.
    ______________________________________________________
    portforwarding doesnt make it faster, it allows more people to connect
    but if youre downloading max speed and portforward, it wouldnt help.
    only if youre having a small amount of seeders and portforward it would help

To check the speed of your modem go here :
http://www.speedtest.net/

But has a lot of ISP are capping the speed on torrents data you won't be able to go faster since it is not controled from your modem but true paquet filtering at the ISP.

If the modem speed is okay, then you should get the same speed while downloading on the torrents too.

You can do a little tweak on the torrent client and increase its speed.

Hope this helps you How to increase Torrent Speed Online Decoded

I am using tp link td-w8901g router.my internet speed is of 384 kbps for which i have to be able to download at maximum 48 kbps. when i use internet normally, i am having slow browsing. the download speed...


If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.

If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.

Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

If you have any additional questions contact me by clicking on the "Add a comment" link located under your problem description on FixYa. Also, if you believe that this information was helpful to you, please rate my solution using FixYa's "Solution Helpful" rating scale.

Slow downloads , using high speed , transfer rate should be 90+kps , only getting12


what are you using as a router? is it just recently getting slower? If it is recent:
-check to make sure no one else is on your network
-call your internet company (some do have caps that they will put on you if it is used too much..the sly dogs)
-check your task manager to make sure there are no crazy apps in the background sucking your juice
-if you are torrenting then pause them while browsing... torrents will slow you down majorly

Downloading problem


Downloading torrents is usually very slow. . but you can do these steps to increase its speed to certain extend. . 
While downloading a torrent just see how much seeds it has & select the which have the maximum. You can also sort it in decreasing order of seeds by clicking the seeds. The speed of downloading torrent changes with time most of them gets speed up in noon or even at midnight. If you still need help mention the game(bcoz it might be a very famous game)

About torrent download


Torrent files tend to download slowly at first because they have to communicate with the tracker and find people that have that torrent open and have parts that you do not have yet. If you wait a few minutes the torrents will generally speed up. The speed of the torrent download also is dependent on the number of seeders (people sharing the file(s) that the torrent refers to). If there are not very many seeders then the torrent will never be fast but if there are a lot of seeders then the torrent will generally be very fast. Also many trackers are setup to throttle the downloads until you have shared a certain amount of your download.

You also should be aware that several ISPs throttle torrent downloads. If this is what is causing you downloads to be slow you are not going to be able to prevent it.
