"Madgamer" said:Firstly, the maximum speed of your download depends on 1) the speed your ISP gave you and 2) how many computers the bandwidth is divided to. Do remember that ISPs pretty much ALWAYS tell the connection speed in bits instead of bytes (so you have to divide the number by 8 to get the "actual" speed), so if you have a 2Mb/512kb connection, the REAL download and upload speeds are ~200kB/~50kB (some of the bandwidth is consumed by the data ABOUT the transfer, such as where the packet comes from and where does it go and so on). Also, the speed at which you download BitTorrent files depends on a couple more things: 1) How fast other people are uploading, 2) how fast those people are allowing a single person to download it from their computers and 3) your actual bandwidth.
Whenever I use a bit torrent file to download the file speed goes at a tremendously slow pace (2-3KB per second) and I'm forced to waste up a site's bandwidth so I could download A LOT faster.
I turned my firewall off and it still says it's blocked by another firewall. If it is blocked by another firewall, how can I check this? Also how would you open the ports you need to make the download go at light speed (2 MB per second, I'm not kidding)?
I'm using Bit Tornado by the way :/
Therefore, UNLESS you have a connection with a download speed of something like 20MBit/s, it's quite frankly IMPOSSIBLE to download at 2 megabytes per second.
