Step 9: Maintaining high speed peers/seeds list

This is an additional tip I'm inserting which I often use but forgot to mention originally.

Many times, the reason for torrents suddenly slowing down is because a high speed peer or seed went offline and the other ones aren't uploading as fast. In this case, you can't do anything, since it isn't possible to force those people to start seeding lol

Another scenario is that those peers are still seeding, but you have lost connection with them (which could happen due to a number of reasons) In this case, it is useful to save the IP address of these high speed peers so that you can connect to them later on. To save the IP address of a specific high-speed peer:

1) Go into the "Peers" tab
2) Observe the list of peers, focus, in specific, on the "down speed" column, this shows you how fast you are downloading data from that specific peer/seed.
3) Right-click on the peers which are giving you faster speeds
4) Click on the "Copy selected hosts" option
5) Open up Notepad and paste using Edit --> Paste or press Ctrl + V

You'll notice that the number appearing will be something like this:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxxx

The bit after the colon shows the port which that specific peer is using to connect. You may copy the addresses of multiple hosts and save it somewhere on your computer

When your download speed has decreased and you want to try to connect to these peers:

1) Go into the "Peers" tab
2) Right-click on an empty portion of the space below
3) Click on the "Add peer" option.
4) Copy and paste the IP address and port no. of the high-speed peer (paste it as it is, don't make any modifications to it)
5) Click on OK
6) If this does cause an increase in your speed, then it means you have connected to that peer and have started downloading. If your speed doesn't change, it means that you failed to connect to that peer, mostly because it is offline and not seeding anymore.

<p>Neither of those videos posted below helped me much but I found one that really gave the FULL list of everything you can do to speed up uTorrent (far more comprehensive than this article) and it worked REALLY well for me - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jZwuYRLSUU</p>
<p>Watch this video. My speed went from 10Kbps to 100-300Kbps. <br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXu4knbc0rc</p>
<p>Good share. </p><p>http://www.ga4u.net</p>
<p>Curti o tutorial mas este aqui achei mais efetivo e atualizado !</p><p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44lwOnRbkRg</p>

<p>I'm on optimum online. Speed test indicates 29mbps upload speed, but I almost never see more than 9mbps upload being used by utorrent. I have followed these steps to see if anything changes, sadly nope. Any suggestions?</p>
<p>how can i add the addresses of hosts</p>
<p>Thank you very much for putting this guide together. I appreciate your efforts!</p>
<em><strong>use torrentz to find what ya need it has it by seeds as well !HeLP! im using bitcomet speed was 121kb/s or kbps i dunno the on under mb now 50 WTF help plz</strong></em>
<p>Simple. Don't use BitComet. Use something like uTorrent or BitTorren.</p>
sounds like you need some help with improving speed. There are a couple possibilities that could speed up your torrents, found on this guide <a href="http://a-how.com/archives/4">a-how.com/archives/4</a>
<p>Thanks bro.....it works like a magic..</p>
Just wanted to say thanks. For an old article 6 years on it still did the trick. I was getting crappy speeds using uTorrent and decided to look into it. I found Portforward.com and set up the system to use a static IP, then I set up port forwarding on the router for uTorrent and also set the firewall exceptions. Then I found this article and carried out the tweaks, with a couple of minor changes due to changes in OS and uTorrent. I went from an average of under 100 kB/s to over 1 MB/s and nearly fell off my chair! Uploads also increased from a dismal average of under 10 kB/s to 40-50 kB/s consistent. <br> <br>Details: <br>uTorrent 3.3.2 <br>Win 7 64bit <br>Cable broadband speedtest: 33.61Mbps down, 1.48Mbps up <br>Computer set to use static IP and router set to port forward to uTorrent + exceptions made in firewall for uTorrent traffic. <br> <br>Thanks again :)
Copying and adding peers manually can be a method to download private torrents without involving a tracker, either because the torrent was created for a single personal transfer, or the tracker of that torrent requires registration. Then one with access can obtain the list of peers, and have another computer add them to download from them. The peers will not need permission from the tracker to start seeding.
Your awesome! Increasing <strong>Maximum Connected Peers per Torrent</strong> and<strong> Global Maximum Number of Connections</strong> significantly improved my download speeds in Bittorrent from a shaky 20mbps to a solid 34mbps!
thanks a lot..it really works amazingly..BIG UPPS. <br>
There are many sites available to check the speed of the internet connection..But i usually test my speed using the <a href="http://www.ip-details.com/" rel="nofollow">IP-Details.com</a> .It shows the uploading and downloading speed of the connection.
anyone on vuze?
Not really......uTorrent is superior to Vuze in every way. Faster, much more customizable, more feature-packed and most of all, <strong>very</strong> low on resources, unlike Vuze which is a Java memory hog lol<br/>
uh, Unless your on a mac - then uTorrent is practically useless. So &quot;superior to Vuze in every way&quot;...?&nbsp; Not really.<br />
