Download Bandwidth Crushed as of release of 3.1.11
« on: October 24, 2014, 02:10:35 am »
Starting yesterday my download bandwidth is choked at a total of around 7-9 kB. I looked and discovered this coincided with the release of 3.1.11. I then downloaded 3.1.11, no better.

Windows 8.1, same problem in two different locations 30 miles apart so it's not about the local network.

Nothing changed at my computer that I know of, program was actually running continuously for many days.

Have switched to utorrent for now but God I HATE it.

Note: It looks as if I'm not uploading anything at all, which might explain the choke on the download speeds. Still, no idea why...

I'm not having any speed issue here. Could just be your ISP throttling.

Can you post your log? (view->execution log)

1) The problem occurs both at home (my ISP) and at a Starbucks 30miles away (Google), plus it started the same day in both locations, so I doubt it's ISP throttling.

2) The execution log doesnt show anything interesting unfortunately. I  started a torrent at random and let it run for a while, all the log says is:
24/10/2014 04:33:22 - 'C:\Users\Eric\Downloads\The.Expendables.3.2014.BRRip.XviD.AC3-EVO.torrent' added to download list.

Let me be the judge of that. Please post your whole log from the begining. -delete any sensitive info and any entries talking about adding torrents in the session-

You might try manually removing the windows firewall entry for qbittorrent with qbit closed then open qbittorrent and verify that the rule was added to the firewall automatically. Windows can be a bit stupid when it comes to software updates and will block outbound connections because the exe is "different" that it expects.

Or if you are behind a NAT router, .. turn Windows firewall off completely because it is only slowing things down.
