using utorrent

hello
I recently joined plusnet, and my line training phase has just finished. i would just like to know if there are problems with using utorrent.
as a previous sky broadband customer, i could upload consistantly through the day, as in switch on utorrent anytime and i would see and
have multiple seeds/peers my average upload was 105 -115 kB/s. and that was consistent throughout the day/night.
as i said i recently joined as an unlimited subscriber, and have had my upload speed uncapped thanks to chris purvey.
but my speed is all over the place it hits a ceiling then falls down then its backup, if i do get any consistency like right now its 20-40kB/s
i can not get more than one peer to connect to me, some of the things i have tried changing in the router are
router settings: firewall on and off : create game/application for utorrent using specific ports (also set port within utorrent) : set a static i.p.
whatever i change doesn't make a difference.
regards

Re: using utorrent

Hi there,
Your upload was uncapped near the end of last month, not sure why you're not seeing around 1.2Mb/s as that's the speed you're in sync at on your upload - does seem very odd. What sync speed is your router reporting, and if you upload anything else (aside from torrents) does that go at the same sort of 400kb/s speeds?

Re: using utorrent

if you're using utorrent 3 I'd downgrade, seeing lots of reports of people with issues on newer versions.

Re: using utorrent

hello, thankyou for the reply`s
im sorry about the late response, life commitments and all..
i just wanted to know if p2p is being throttled in the daytime, as i thought my package was unlimited.
the reason i ask is during the day it bounces around at 30-45 kB/s, and ive noticed as i stayed up late that im getting 115-150 kB/s,
if im not being limited, then my problem still persists
when i say life commitments, thats not to say i haven`t had a play with the pc and router to try and get a stable connection,i have for since i first made this thread
id just thought id have a go at trying to figure it out myself, so this is what ive tryed:
setup a static ip from pc based on ipconfig /all    info.
manually forwarded ports in windows firewall. made exception in avg.
in router: (Technicolor TG582n)
disabled firewall
created game application exception with firewall ports (same ports used with utorrent)
as i`d created a static i.p on my pc, the router had automatically ticked the static i.p box
so with this setup i have seen speeds of 115-150 kB,s but never in the day and if i hadn`t of been of work i would still have thought i had problems with utorrent

Re: using utorrent

@chris300 have you just changed to the unlimited account from another Plusnet account which had limitations? If so, have you rebooted your router and/or disconnected the phone line for 30s, this will restart the PPP connection and apply the right settings for your new unlimited account.

Re: using utorrent

No problems there, looks pretty stable, although it's only an 8 hour snapshot of things.
That's RPM to you!!
