Introduction: How to Speed Up Utorrent 1.8.1

About: I am a guy who lives in California. During my spare time, I like to see if somebody posts a decent instructable that I would like to try. I also love to play xbox 360.

This instructable is for people who want utorrent 1.8.1 to go faster. This will make utorrent go a few times faster.

--== Think ==--

Lets think, what can you do with all of that time saved?

Step 1: Getting to the Preferences

1. Go to the toolbar at the top and click options.
2. The select Preferences

*shortcut* CTL + P

Step 2: SPEEEEEEDD UP TIME!

Step 3: DON'T MESS WITH THESE!

Yeah, really, don't mess with this stuff.

Step 4: Results

The results should be good. Utorrent should be going quite a bit faster.

Thanks for looking and hopfully using this instructable.

    I think this is Better:

    Torrent Client - Preferences - Bandwidth - Number of connections - Set aprox. 500 for each
    Torrent Client - Preferences - BiTorrent - Protocol Encryption - Forced
    Bandwidth Allocation - High (Set download/upload limit - Unlimited)
    Stop Other Active Torrents - Start downloading and wait for connections.

    Thanks! Went from 48kb/s to 10mb/s

    The scheduler stuff is actually pretty helpful with seeding.
    If you got file that you want to seed you can set it up so that U-torrent will open when you turn on your computer. then using this scheduler you can make it seed a different file each day. That way the seed faster then if they're all going at once. ;)

    OH MY GOD THANKS
    NOW I FOUND OUT IT WENT FROM 48 KB/S TO 1500 KB/S
    TY SO MUCH

    Thank you very much, even with my bad internet connection my rate went from
    48 kb/s to 270+ !!

    Thank you so much :) I have a bunch of hard-to-find foreign films downloading that have been taking forever and your expertise helped me enjoy my movie night

    Hi using u torrent 1.8.5 on vista hp 32 bit so what new speedier settings might i try out - thanks . .

    Actually no you shouldn't. If you look closely, it says 0 = unlimited.
    If you set it to 1, you are limiting it to one kb/s (at most).
    If you set it to 0, you may achieve a lot more than 1.

    my one went down by about 20% is it just me or od i have a lousy internet connection?

     I Did exactly what you said ...... Look at he results, There great right......OH wait the green line is supposed to go the other way,  I think?
