uTorrent and ethernet cable speed?

My torrent is still slow with ethernet. Idk what else to do.

Try to allow some upload like 50 kb or 100 kb minimum. Sometimes you need to upload to get good download rates.

Also try the application DELUGE

 

Its way better than bittorrent or utorrent as it is a open source app

Hi,

 

I have this USB wi-fi adapter: TL-WN822N 300mb/s and I've been using it for quite a while. With this my download speed is 30 to 70 mb/s and I often get 5mb/s+ download speed while using uTorrent so it's all good.

 

But today I bought a (cat. 6) utp ethernet cable. I ran an internet speed test and it's 3x higher. It gave me 150-160mb/s download speed. But on uTorrent it seems to be extremely slow, I only reached 450kb/s and I've been running torrents for hours now, still ~400kb/s and now I switched back to Wifi adapter and the torrent file which goes at 400kb/s on my ethernet cable is downloading at now 6mb/s -.-

 

What can the problem be?

 

Specs:

mobo: gigabyte z97 gaming 7

ram: 4x8gb corsair ddr3 1600mhz

cpu: i5-4460 3.2gz

 

USB Wifi adapter: TL-WN822N 300mbs and has its corresponding driver installed

Ethernet connection cable: cat6 cable and has corresponding driver installed (Killer Network Manager latest ver.)

its a torrent, speeds can vary greatly based on the swarm size and available bandwidth, nothing is necessarily wrong here

 

if you had any port forwarding setup for this, make sure that you change the MAC and IP addresses to correspond to your Ethernet NIC

Cat.6 may go up to 1,000 Mbps, go to speedtest.net to test your speed connection.

Finally slow torrent download speeds may be the result of a lack of seeds and a slow internet connection, but there are ways to tweak your utorrent settings and optimize your connections for maximum download speeds.

Aldo you will never be able to reach the utorrent speed that your provider tells you.

Torrent speeds are directly related to the everyone else's speeds. If the combined total upload speed of the seeders (if the leechers aren't uploading) is the results you're getting, nothing is going to change that.

But now it's not the case because as soon as I switch back to Wi-Fi the same file that was previously downloading at~400kb/s goes up to 5-6mb/s so there's some technical issue here.

check your port forwarding settings in the router, you might have some settings for the IP address that was assigned to your wifi adapter, that since you are connected by Ethernet,, you will have a different internal IP

as long as you have the same port forwarding settings, you should have the same experience

Okay guys problem solved. I clicked on "update download speed" on the Killer Network driver and my speeds are awesome now. 16mb/s which I have never achieved before with Wi-Fi!

good on you for fixing it, but from the screenshot you posted (now removed) you're using torrents for illegal purpose, which isn't allowed by the Community Standards, so this thread is now locked.
