Bittorrent is slowwwww- Settings?
OK.. something isn't right. I've had this problem before with Linux ISOs. They take me hours and hours to download via Torrent, but if I can find an http link, I download them in no time.
Last night I was downloading 2, 35mb files, and it took almost 10hrs. It appeared I had several seeds, etc, but everything I download via torrent is extremely slow, no matter what client I have. I'm positive its not my Cable connection. I've ran a couple speed tests, and always come back around 4mb, also, when I download via HTTP, my downloads are fine. Just as an example, as a test I just downloaded OpenOffice.org, 120mb via Http, and it took a little over 1.5min. I've went through all my settings, and everything appears set properly(default settings).
So the only thing I can assume, is my Firewall is causing this. I have a Netgear FVS114 wired firewall, that supplies a couple other connections to other devices in the house(they weren't running when I was having the problem). All appears normal..
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
