View Full Version : Incredibly low Download Speeds for my mbps

I somehow have an at least 6 year old router that has a 100 mbps connection, which would seem to give me godly download speeds in excess of at least 1mb/s. Instead, my download speed literally cannot exceed 188 kb/s and I have no download caps enabled that I know of. Is my router lying to me and I have a shittier connection than I thought, or is there some hidden windows cap that has been ****ing me over?

Maybe get a new router? Old ones tend to cause problems (Actually I have no clue, I'm just guessing)

You think your connections shit. Mines like 80kbps on average.

I'm packing a measly 1.1. Considering I only have 1% the download speed of Scarecrow, however, I can feel proud to be able to upload at 0.34 - a solid 70% :)

Go into your routers settings and make sure you have the torrent port open.


Go to http://portforward.com/ and look for your router, it'll explain how to open your port.

So I'm sitting here thinking, "well my download speed sucks compared to Myself and Scarecrow, but hey, there's probably something special about Australian connections, I mean they're doing all this stuff to it at the moment aren't they? I can hardly expect to compete. I'm probably doing alright by local standards," but then guess who turns up to blow my self-justification out of the water. Fuck you, Cronos, and your non-incredible connection. Fuck you.

Edit: nowait! They're both via Melbourne and you go through Perth :)

cool Australians.
now try and download from a server in another country, especially since i doubt you'd find a lot of Australian hosts for most places you download shit.

looks nice, but everything is capped at 1.4mbps.
from torrents to http to steam. never goes above 1.4. it's lame.
directly connected to my modem, too.

though i've also only been able to upload at around 100kbs

cut back to something like 12 kb/s if we pass that

I can get around 3mbps on steam, but other that that not much goes above 1mbps for me :l
