5 Simple Steps To Make Your uTorrent Faster

Torrents can be annoyingly slow. For example, suppose you are trying to download a movie that you are planning to watch on the weekend, but how would you feel if the download speed is below ten kB/s or worse? This is a common problem that many torrent users find annoying. But there are some simple tricks that you can apply to make the torrent download speed boost up.

Little Bit About Torrent:

Torrent is an interesting file-sharing technology. It does not use the central server as a normal download from a specific website would require. Instead, torrent uses a decentralized server for P2P or person to person file sharing. You can share games, movies, or software using torrents, or you can download them.

Torrent websites don’t host any download files. Instead, they provide information about the location of the searched file. So you have to download the magnet link. And the magnet link will bring the download file for you. Some of the frequently used torrent websites are The Pirate Bay, RARBG, Kickass proxy, 0123putlockers.

But there have been some legality issues centring on the use of torrents. As some of the reports claim, a large portion of global torrent use includes the distribution of pirated movies. So many countries ( including The US, UK, Australia, and India) have banned and taken down numerous torrent websites.

Why Does Torrent Slow Down?

Since the legitimacy of torrent is not the concern here, there is no point delving deeper into that. Let us know why torrents slow down. Some factors are under your control that makes torrent download incredibly slow. But there are some factors that you do not have authority over. I am leaving some underlying reasons below-

  • Port forwarding issues on the router.
  • ‘Bandwidth management’ may be on.
  • The Firewall may block peer connections.
  • Encryption settings may reduce peers.
  • Poorly seeded torrent.

But if the ISP or the internet service provider is behind the slow download speed, then simple configuration tweaking won’t help you.


5 Tips For Faster Torrent:

Now let’s look at some actionable tips to boost your torrent download speed.

1.) More Seeders, Faster Download:

The seeder and leecher ratio is very crucial when it comes to the download speed of a torrent. If the number of seeders is higher than your download speed will typically increase. So, you must look for a torrent that has a higher number of seeders than the leechers. You can yourself increase the number of seeders; read further to know how you can do that.

Start downloading the torrent on a torrent client. You can, for instance, use uTorrent for faster download. Now, on uTorrent, go to the torrent that you are downloading right now. Next, right-click on that torrent file and choose Properties from the drop-down menu. Now you have to copy and paste the tracker into the Trackers’ tab.

You will see the number of seeders and leechers rise immediately, and consequently, your download speed will rise as well. Many found this trick helpful. I am sure you will too.

2.) Bandwidth:

If the slow download issue occurs when you are downloading multiple torrent files, you can allot more bandwidth to the one you want to finish faster.     To allot more Bandwidth, follow the below-mentioned steps.

  • Choose the file you want to download first and right-click on it.
  • On the side menu, look for Bandwidth Allocation and choose the High option.
  • You can do this for other files as well. You just have to change the bandwidth allocation from Low to High.

3.) Connect With Seeds Directly:

The seeder’s firewall settings may be interfering with the downloading speed. You may not receive any downloading data from the seeder in this case. You don’t have to worry about the seeder’s firewall setting in this. Instead, you can directly connect with the seeds using your torrent client. There will be no firewall interference in this case. Steps-

  • Select Option
  • Choose Preferences.
  • Select Connections.
  • Confirm if “Enable UPnP Port Mapping” is checked.

Enabling this option will help you decline the Firewall’s interference and connect with the seeds directly.

4.) Use Cabled Internet Connection:

Sometimes slow downloads may be caused by wi-fi. Depending solely on wi-fi internet can sometimes be the reason for such problem’s occurrence, wireless connections can sometimes be slower than stronger ethernet. You can use ethernet to get a boost in the torrent download speed.

5.) There Is More To The Bandwidth Settings:

You can optimize the Bandwidth setting further to give the download speed a boost. In the tab marked Bandwidth, set the upload rate to 14a and the maximum download rate to 1800. Set the global maximum number as 2329. Set the maximum torrent peer numbers to 257.

Final Words:

Stuffing too many torrents in the download queue is like stuffing too much food in your stomach. Be patient when you are downloading and add only a handful of files to the downloading queue. If the ISP causes a slow download, then using a good VPN will come to your rescue. Using VPNs is thoughtful whether you are using torrent, Mediafire, or checking on a restricted website. Please let me know if any of these solutions worked in your favour.
