HI all I have been having problems with torrents as of late I have talked to others in Prince Rupert who are having the same problem. Let me explain I have full adsl 3 IP’s my average download speed is 16 kbs this is with a file that has over 400 seeds and 23000 peers. but im only logging on to a few seeds and peers. It does not matter what client I use I have tried them all I have also opened my half-open tcp limit to full limit 50 from 10.
My computer that did the downloads was on ip 209.blaa.blaa.98 it was fast but started top slow so I changed to ip 209.blaa.blaa.100 and it was fast for a few months. Im going right from the computer to the switch then to the modem. today I try 209.blaa.blaa, 99 and what do you know Im super fast again i connected to 15 seeds and 30 peers and was downing at 140 kbs.
so I take that computer and plug it right in to the modem, 99 fast 100, and 98 are shit same file same computer nothing changed except the ip. I go back to 99 and i again connected to the same amount of seeds and peers with the same download speeds.
I went to citytel this morning and talked Greg he was a great help… he could not explain why those ip using the same torrents on the same computer could not connect. he sugested those IP could be banned… I usualy dont go to sites that have ratio’s.
I have test my speeds with all 3 ip’s and I get 1.5 megs to 2 megs download speed depending were I test to…
its strange one ip can connect the other two cant using the same computer.
