Question Newbie to ubuntu bittorrent (azureus) slow downloads


Hi,
have just installed linux and I am a complete noob to it!
I am now using azureus instead of utorrent in windows. I have a 4mb broadband connection (with post office) but blient will download at no-more than 10kp/s. and two weeks to get a .avi is abit excessive
any hint on how to to change this please any advice will be like a godsend
thanks for your time!

Well is there lots of seeders for this particular file. Also you can try other torrent programs like Deluge which is basically utorrent for linux

Hi,

I like to use utorrent for M$. A lot less overhead, especially for older hardware. Seeds will dictate your speed.
