    Slower Than Swarm Average Download Speed

    I know this is a common question, but I have read and tried many things. Heres my situation:
    System: Windows XP home edition, SP1, 2 year old, Dell Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz, 512 RAM
    Im using Azureus 2.4.0.2 (changed from Bitcomet)

    Incoming port changed to 60xxx
    No router or network - just a single home computer directly into a SBC supplied Siemens, Speedstream 4100. (supplied June.2006)

    ISP = ATT/SBC 1.5 Mps max
    DSL report is: 1282 kb/s download / 313 kb/s upload
    No NAT problems
    Ran TCP optimizer (speedguide.net) and changed settings - no help

    Slow downloads for all torrents.
    Good health torrents 7-9 seeds, 30-40 peers, 15 copies available
    # of Torrents____download speeds
    9 torrents ~ 35 60 kb/s
    6 torrents ~ 7 15 kb/s
    1 torrent ~ 1-2 kb/s

    A 1.35 GB video file takes over 4 -6 days to download

    If I reduce the number of torrents my total download speed drops.

    Individual torrent download speeds are less then the average swarm download speeds.

    Limited upload to 80% of result of speed test (download = 313 *.8 = 240 kb/s set limit)

    I use Zone Alarm free version, and have set the Internet security set to medium
    I also run Peer Guardion2 latest version.

    I ran www.canyouseeme.org, and it was able to see my port (only with zone alarm & peer guardian shutdown)

    Does this seem normal? Is port forwarding the answer, or did I miss something else?

    Again - I average d/l swarm speeds of > 120 KB/s and Im only at 40KB/s with a 1200 KB/s speed test??

    Thanks in advance.

    Then most likely you do have a router...every single SBC supplied 4100 unit I've worked with comes from SBC set in router mode..it does the PPPoE and NAT. It should have a yellow sticker on the bottom, telling you its LAN IP address of 192.168.0.1 with the password to log in and manage it.

    Correct 192.168.0.1 but no port forwarding option

    I aggree I went to 192.168.0.1 but there isn't a port forwarding option shown.
    Is it under another heading?
    Thanks again.

    Don't you think it has something to do with your internet connection? You should try checking if your pc gets the correct amount of mpbs/kbps from your provider.

    @bebe, that's right. I have been having problems with my connection this past few days and what happened what I had to call the customer service of my internet provider just to correct it.
