My System Specs


What you get for speeds has to do with a lot of factors....

If you join a swarm and there are 20 seeders and 100 leechers but all those leechers are at 80%+ you are going to get really damn good speed downloading until you catch up with everyone.

I know in Vuze there is a header you can add called "swarm average speed". Enable that header and you may find that the average swarm speed is 50K... which means you'll probably never get above 100K.

Now if your friend and you both start a torrent at the same time and he's waxing you then that's a different story. Maybe you need the tcp patch....
