my bittorrent faster than newsgroups??

Postby asianjabba » Thu Mar 26, 2009 8:06 am

Hi everybody, i have a weird situation. when i use astraweb, i'm downloading at a max of about 300-350kbs which i assumed would be the max. so just for the hell of it, i decided to try bittorrent and get something from there and i'm downloading at about 900kbs. does anybody know why my bittorrent is that much faster than using newsgroups? is there some setting i'm missing or something wrong with my connections? any help or tips is VERY MUCH appreciated. thanks in advance!

okay, i just solved my own problem. i was using astraweb and realized that under the server settings, i only had 1 connection. i changed it to 8 and everything is all gravy...maxed out my bandwith. thanks for the help!

Isn't it amazing how instantly answers come 'after' you post the question? Kinda like how proof reading always fails...until the 'send' button is hit.

Happens to me all the time.
