    Default Why is that my torrent program stops downloading all of a sudden?

    I have an internet connection of 128 KBPS from local cable provider. I use u torrent program to download. Sometimes I observe that all of sudden it stops downloading anything. Sometimes it stops downloading but continues uploading but sometimes it stops both. My Cable person told me its an unlimited connection. Can the ISP be checking how much I'm downloading and then stop me from downloading further? He told me its unlimited so he should not be keeping a tab on it. What could be the reason?

    I have seen this happening again! I checked with my ISP that I dont have any limit on the download. All of a sudden I'm unable to either seed or leech. I have tried with lot of different torrent files and neither of them can either seed or leech. I can understand that for a certain files if we are unable to leech or seed coz of unavailability of seeders but this is happening with all the files. I'm able to download anything without torrent using IDM. What could be the problem? Any setting on my client which needs to be tweaked?

    Friends does uploading effect downloading! For example I'm uploading something using my client ? Will this effect my download? After a long time I'm able to Upload now but unable to download something! Do you think the upload has got to do anything with this?

    Upload has nothing to do with download.
    Because there is a fix alloted bandwidth for both by our ISP.

    I don't agree with you on this.
    Downloading speed will not be affected by uploading any file..because our ISP allocate fix bandwidth for both.

    ^^No, even if isp allocate fix bandwith for both uploading speed can affect d/l speed.
    During download u also upload small amount of data to the server frm wer u r downloading(uploading is necessary for downloading). So if someone tries to allocate all his b/w for uploading some stuffs ,his other download will be affected

    I will advice you to call your ISP customer care and get verified about this.

    ^no need to call isp dear
    chk here about setting upload speed in torrents. Even if isp provides separate lines for u/l and d/l, setting upload speed to max can choke ur D/L rate(u wont be able to browse if u r uploading at full throttle)
    we're going to use about 75%~85% of this value. If you have a really slow upload speed, 75% is a bit more forgiving, but if you're on a really fast connection, feel free to use a higher percentage, like 85%. I do not recommend going higher than 90%, because this will be too close to your maximum upload speed and will probably choke your bandwidth at some point. So:
    12.8 x .80 = 10.24
    Torrent only allows you to use whole rounded numbers, so on this ocassion we'll use 10. If you still experience some websites that are timing out, or you're having other types of problems (like difficulty sending e-mails for instance), feel free to lower this to 9. However, if you're primarily seeding and are barely using the PC for Web browsing, you can safely use 11. In this case, I'll just leave it at 10.

    Btw, if you feel your ISP is interfering, you can enable encryption in utorrent. The speed will take a light hit, but it should get past any ISP...

    Thats becoz u r file uploading job is not a high priority job.
    Try this, seed some some stuff in torrent at full upload speed and make it a high priority job.
    Now try to browse sites or download anothr torrent,it will be too slow or completely unable to D/L
