    I'm using uTorrent currently, but its bugging me that all my download/upload speed isnt being used:( my connection it 256KB upload and 1500KB download (crapzorz), but i cant even get 50KB with 20 seeds and 60 peers connected to me

    whats a better alternative, and can let me continue downloading what i currently am

    (note: if this isnt allowed, pleas tell me)

    Maybe you're just downloading off really slow seeders

    Use 1.6.1
    A lot of sites will block the newer versions from their trackers
    Limit your upload maximum to 80% of your maximum upload

    uTorrent.

    Also, don't expect to ever hit your connection's "DL speed", or even get close.

    I only use torrents for obscure stuff coz they take an absolute age to download. Newsgroups ftw!

    I use Azureus, but not the updated thing that they turned it into, since i had the older version installed, it installed everything but that luckily, so it looks and feels just like the old one. It eats up ram to hell but it always gets the job done, and the updated version has a feature where you can use a certain ip block list, from either a site or a file =D

    Err, your speeds aren't 1500KB and 256KB, sorry to break it to you, but 1500Kb and 256Kb. The fastest speed you can ever hope for is 160KB/s.

    I use utorrent for most stuff and a handful of good torrent sites. Limewire and soulseek are pretty good if you're just looking for a single song

    Best "p2p" is an unlimited Giganews account with Newsleecher (w/ Super Search) and throw in a newzbin.com account for good measure and you'll be rocking the free world. [​IMG]

    Damn, p2p is so 90's. [​IMG]

    Urza its very possible to get to your DL speed, in uTorrent I reach it all the time, when my ports AREN't open because Verizon blocks them.
