Thread: Are BT downloads throttled?

  1. #1

    Default Are BT downloads throttled?

    Just wondering if any of the ISPs throttle BT downloads.

    I haven't been getting good BT download speeds these 1 or 2 weeks. Is it just me or have others been experiencing the same?

    Starhub MOL user?
    I still manage to get decent speeds for torrents with at least 200 seeders + leechers

    BT = Bit Torrent, a type of file-sharing
    MOL = MaxOnLine, Starhub cable service

    I guess you're not alone. My friends on Singnet has mentioned the same problems. Not fast but still manageable speeds

    Alamak!! I may have found out the prob!

    I just changed a new wireless card, so my wireless router thought it was a new computer & put it behind the DMZ & gave it an internal IP (192.xxx.xxx.xxx) & use NAT instead of a public IP. Most, if not all P2P software will give you lower priority if you use NAT or behind a firewall.

    After reconfiguring router, d/l speed seems to pick up. Pai-seh.

    Yup.... I did the quick & dirty way -- put computer out in the DMZ & up my firewall & other filters.
