it didnt work for me.. im using 2mbps (mega bits per second) plan and my normal download speed is 200kBps (kilo bytes per second). It is maximum i can get using this plan. How am i supposed to increase this to 400kB/s or 700kB/s or 1mB/s [ which exceeds my allocated bandwidth ]. I wonder how you guys get such increase in the speed despite it exceeds your allocated bandwidth.. pls, someone explain!!

No, this is Totally wrong . The trackers will not work properly.
If you want optimum speed - go to set up and then "RUN TEST" and then click save . Else just leave it with the default values

Please...

The Bandwidth Allocation settings in uTorrent simply allocate a higher or lower bandwidth priority to specific torrents *relatively to each other* in your torrent list.

It does *absolutely nothing* in regards to external programs, or to the combined speed of your torrents, or to the conditions of your Internet connection (obviously).

As for the advanced net.max_halfopen setting, unless your OS supports that number of simultaneous physical connections or is adequately modified to do so, the only thing it'll accomplish with a value of 80 is to create a bottleneck that'll affect the performance of your whole Internet connection adversely, including uTorrent. Think timeouts and web pages not loading, lower speeds, among others.

The same can pretty much be said about setting the global and per torrent maximum number of connections to such a high value of 500. And I won't even comment about the possibility of trying to put that through the average home router!

Frankly, most or all of the above guide is way off base and plain wrong. Sorry for my sincerity.

Anyone who doubts anything I wrote needs only to confirm it from the official uTorrent documentation, its official site and the people who code it, not to mention, anyone with real computer technical knowledge...

I already had decent download speeds (approx. 1mb/s) but this boosted it to around 1.7. It helps, but remember, low download speeds are often the result of a low amount of seeders, so make sure you look into that before blaming your BitTorrent settings
