Does anyone know the settings I should use to make things download faster please.????

yes, its called use utorrent.

low overhead and sets itself up.

µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources - typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren't there at all. Additionally, the program itself is contained within a single executable less than 220 KB in size.

μTorrent is praised for its small size and the minimal computer resources it uses which sets it apart from other clients.

open utorrent

on menu goto options > preferences

on left menu

goto connection

port used for incoming I have random

the next fout i have ticked

I do not use a proxy

if you still cant use then I suggest your firewall is stopping it

what firewall do you use?

if you just want to go back to how you were before then use system restore.

Use System Restore to Undo Changes if Problems Occur

this will put all your settings etc back as they were.

U Torrent never sets itself up properly. Yes it usually downloads stuff ok, but you do'nt get the best download speeds.

Maggie, I'm afraid you wont get the best from it unless you also configure your router/modem. Forwarding ports will give you by far the best results but without being condescending I doubt you'd have the confidence to set it up.

Hi Maggie

I can sort the router out remotely but I'm just on my way out now and not back until tomorrow night. :dance: I might be able to do it then if you are still stuck.

Well you must do something wrong with it then because it will max out your download to 100% if you let it.

She should not need to configure anything on her modem unless she has altered any of the standard settings.

Firewall could be a different matter but until she says which firewall she is using then I cant really suggest anything.

What? .. Lots of users find that the default settings for some torrent clients are not correctly configured for use behind a wireless router or hub.

Maggie, let Martyn set up port forwarding on your router and see for yourself. It can't harm.
