I am in the process of switching over from Verizon DSL to Charter cable. I had the line and modem activated the other day and I have noticed that the speed is a little faster now (3Meg service on both). Then I happened to look at my ibook that I have Transmission running on. DSL can download a file at 50Kb/s, connect the cable modem and the download speed goes to maybe 1Kb/s. Whats up with that? So I figure that they are blocking the ports for Bit Torrents, and then I setup port forwarding on my router and setup both Azureus and Transmission for, lets say port 65502. With my new cable modem attached, Azureus seems to run pretty fast (over 150Kb/s), but if I switch over to Transmission, the down and up speed is like 5Kb/s. What could be the culprit besides Ip shaping? Also, what solutions besides setting up port forwarding as well as changing my ports every once in a while? Any help would be greatfully appreciated. Also, I am not using torrents for illegal purposes whatsoever, just really big files for work, just wanted to say that up front.
