How do I increase my speed even though my WiFi is fast?

I'm downloading SIM 4 and it says ETA 1h 27 minutes. I don't know what that means...

Follow the steps in the Main VisiHow article attached to this page. You can see it in bold at the top. Click it to see how to use faster torrent trackers as well as how to adjust your speed. Sometimes, if you are downloading at peak hours for your neighborhood, the speeds can be outrageously slow. Depending on who you have as an internet provider, they will also play a game of slowing down speeds for excessive downloads. You will also want to invest in an Ethernet cable if you download frequently to hard wire connect to your router.

Was going fast then suddenly slowed right down?

It was going over 900 per sec now going 5 per sec?. I have tried: The articles on this page. I think it was caused by: I don't know,it just went very slow

In addition to the tips in the main article, you will want to make sure that nothing is seeding within your list and that you are only downloading one thing at a time. uTorrent's bandwidth can sometimes slow down but it picks up fast. If your speeds stay this way for several hours then you have bad trackers or are downloading something popular with not enough seeders to maintain the demand so you will be basically waiting in line for the next connection option available for seeding.

My server has 4G but speed is 2G only?

My server has 4G but speed is 2G only

If you are referring to the mobile speed, then you will need to see if your SIM card used supports 4G. Some carriers switch to 4G and demand that everyone who wants to use 4G be upgraded to new SIM cards at their offices. If your SIM card supports 4G, then you will need to check the coverage area of your carrier. Some carriers publish their maps online. If you are in the 4G-covered area, then the signal might be isolated by walls or other objects. Move the 4G modem closer to the window to get better signal. The reason that it skips 3G is that ofttimes, carriers just skip developing the 3G technology and go directly from 2G to 4G.

I get a speed of 25 up to 95 kbps, I want to increase it?

Speed increase for uTorrent and I want speed in mbps so please help

Follow the steps above in the answer provided about changing the uTorrent settings throughout the menu. It will take about 10 minutes to set it up and then another 30 or so to process the changes but your speeds should be in mbps. If they are not then it is your router or internet provider.

You should have your upload rate set to 670 and your download rate to 0 but for the maximum effect, the process provided in the above answer needs to be thorough throughout the setting changes. There is more to faster downloads than just your bandwidth.

My speed is usually 200-500 kbps my friends is 3MB?

I just want my speed to go to 1MB. I have tried: I changed the preference thing. I think it was caused by: I don't know

It could be your internet provider or your router. Unless you are both in the same house, there are many variables for those changes. For instance, my internet provider uses fiber optic which is far faster than other connections available. We also use two routers for WiFi because our house is three levels so this provides the best coverage. While my router on the first floor is wicked fast, even with the additional WiFi upstairs, the third floor is slower. Change your WiFi location or use Ethernet when downloading for the best speed. Run a Speed Test program on your computer and compare it to what your internet provider claims are the rates of transfer. It may be your router location that makes all the difference. Especially if you changed your Settings to maximize your speeds.

In status says queued and under down speed it is blank?

It doesn't download. how can I fix this. I have tried: Look up YouTube. I think it was caused by: Trying to make it faster in properties

First, go through the process listed out in the above answer to change your settings properly. Then try to download but wait an hour before trying. If nothing has changed, search online to see if your internet provider blocks programs like uTorrent. Second, only download from trusted sources, if you are on a website that allows comments then read them before you try to download. You should also have at least 10 seeders available before you try to download anything.

Why has my uTorrent speed dropped from the last 2 days?

Why has my uTorrent speed dropped from the last 2 days? please help. my upload speed is higher than the download speed

Set the uTorrent Options to the suggestions in the above answer. Unfortunately, things change overnight with uTorrent and tweaks have to be made. When this occurs again look on YouTube for the most current video. The good ones always have a month and year with their heading. It is usually changing some port or unchecking something that previously worked to speed up the process.
