Hi,
Yes, I did all that. I'm getting variable seeders from 36 to 45 out of a possible 290.
Vuze always gives me a higher percentage of possible seeders.
Frankly, I just dont understand it.
I also can't understand why any web based software would want to change the way everyone is used to seeing speeds! Why try and invent the wheel?
I'm sure that 99% of people using bittorrent sites are used to seeing speeds in Kb/s or Mb/s. It just seems crazy to me why a company would want to screw around with a system that people know and understand.
Ah well, I'm never going to change the world or corporate's ideas of what is right or wrong haha

Great stuff.
Thanks for your reply.
I appreciate what you have said but 9 hours to download a 2Gb file? Still seems mightily slow to me however qbit shows the speed lol.
I'll check the incoming connections as suggested and see if that makes any difference.
As I mentioned, Vuze was always quicker by a substantial margin!

Hi all,
Newbie on the forum.
I'm using qbittorrent 4.1.5 on a mac and the speed is shockingly slow! Not only that, it seems to be taking up 90% of my bandwidth too.
The fastest speed I have witnessed so far has been 427Kb/s whilst my broadband speed is 3.8Mb/s
If qbit is operating it takes more than 20 seconds to open a tab on Safari for google.
Surely this can't be right?
Vuze regularly downloaded at up to 3Mb/s but I was advised that qbit was better. I need to ask the recommender, in what way is it better? It seems to me that it just really poor!
Anyone got any ideas?
I've followed all the recommendations for upload/download limits etc but none of it made any difference.
Thanks all
