    Hi Folks need some advice

    Have a white macbook about 3 years old/intel etc etc..I have found that when I'm at home plugged into a hardwire internet connection I get respectable torrent download speeds (100-200kb's/sec)..

    I work in the oil and gas industry in Alberta and stay at camps often..When I connect the same laptop there my torrent download speed is terrible (10-15kb's/sec) even though downloads are permitted and many of the pc laptop users don't have a problem with the speeds. Primarily use vuze but have tried a few other torrent downloaders..Is there something within my computer settings or downloader settings that slowing me down and if so could you provide any advice on how to over come this

    Cheers
    Al

    Limit your upload speed as that affects download speed.

    For example, if you have a connection with 1MB/s download and 128KB/s upload, having an upload at 125KB/s will damper the download speed.
