uTorrent Complete Configuration guide for high speed downloads

The torrent configurations are always a hard part for me. Also when i use client with less configurations it takes me ages to complete the download and upload. Finally after reading a lot of forums and other guides i found the rite setting and now i get the complete speed that my ISP allots me.

First the best client i found for downloading torrents is uTorrent. I tried most of the famous names including BitComet, BitLord, Azureus etc.

Starting of… After the installation

The ISP speed should accurately estimated, which can be found using the website
-Go to Options > Speed Guide
-Select the listing closest to your upload speed result (rounding down as necessary)
-Note that the speed tests may not be 100% accurate due to factors outside of your control, so if the closest option is only a little bit higher than what your upload speed results received on the tests (perhaps by 10%), it’s generally safe to select that.
-You will notice that the “Affected Settings” further down the page have adjusted to match your selected speed. Higher settings will not give you better speed, and may in fact make speeds worse. So don’t be greedy.
-Click the “Use Selected Settings” button at the bottom of the Speed guide window.

Go to Options > Preferences > Connection and put your result in the “Global maximum upload speed rate” box.

Now comes the main settings that determine the speed. At the bottom of the utorrent (status bar) you may see there is ““. You should fix that,
-Goto Options > Preferences > Connections. Click “random port” once, and note the port number provided. This will be the port number you will be forwarding in your router. (You may also assign a port number of your choice, but dont select common ports).

After the port is selected in port settings, now we need to set the settings in the router which most people think is a very hard part. I have to agree that this is gonna turn to be a easy one once you visit PortForward.com. Where you just have to select your modem make and model and the “uTorrent” from the program list to get the directions to forward the port in your router for incoming connections.

Once the quick are right, you can see a small green tick mark tick

4. Using UPnP
Using this isnt always recommended but is a good option for speed hungry people
Go to Options > Preferences > Connections, check “Enable UPnP port mapping.
