Post subject:  slow downloads?

right firstly i have tried to register, but did not recieve the activation email

right i have a green light
40 peers with an average of 43.7% (totalt speed 980kbs)
8 seed's also seeking 8.999 coopies

with a share rate of 1.262

but i'm only abchieving a download rate of 5kbs on average
with an upload of 20-25kbs

as i'm on a 1 meg dsl connection i'm thinking this is a little slow. i have tried slowing down the upload rate to 10kbs but that does not affect my d/l speed.

also you say that your d/w rate is proportional to your u/pload rate. well what is the number you need on your share rating to have full access?

also is my number of seeds ok to get a good d/l speed usually or am i just being ulucky in the torrents i have tried?
