torrent downloading times?


TRIBE Member
I don't do much torrent downloading, but when I do it always takes 3 or more days just to download a TV episode.

Is this normal?? There must be some way to make it faster - please enlighten me!!

Make sure your port forwarding and everything is in order.

I think that is the problem unfortunately. Something about the airport not keeping everything open for security reasons.

I use Tomato torrents with Mac OSX. I average 70-250k/sec over wireless. I go by 3 general rules.

1. Make sure torrent has seeders, most recent tv shows always do.
2. Make sure you open the correct ports, it was like 6881-9 (may be dated)
3. Make Rogers isn't your ISP - packet shaping theives.
