Slow upload and download
« on: April 20, 2018, 05:16:36 pm »
I have checked and my port is forwarded and connectable. I have Comcast blast internet and it is just fine. qBittorrent seem to be slowing me down. Terribly slow  upload and download speed. Any suggestions please?

I have ComCast as well.
qBT isn't the fastest BitTorrent client I've used on it, but that's mostly due to bugs in it that are slowly being fixed.

You could have interfering networking software (firewalls and poor quality/poor signal strength wifi) that can really cripple qBitTorrent.

qBT's settings can be set such that it slows everything down yet doesn't run fast itself -- such as extremely high max connection and half open connection limits.
qBT is currently really bad about overloading hard drives -- there's already a patch in the works for that, but it hasn't been released yet as a stable+official version of qBT.
