    1. First open uTorrent go to Options >> Preferences >> Network

    2. Under 'Port used for incoming connections', enter any port number. Usually, it should be above 10000....I am using 24389.

    3. Look for 'Randomize port each start' uncheck this option

    4. Look for 'Enable UPnP port mapping' uncheck this also.

    5. Look for 'Add uTorrent to Windows Firewall exceptions'. Uncheck this too…

    6. Now go to >> Bandwidth

    7. Look for 'Global Maximum upload rate' set the value to 20.

    8. Look for 'Global Maximum Number of Connections' and set it to 150. (Don't set this too high may cause speed slowdown)

    9. Look 'Maximum Number of connected peers per torrent' and set this to 75.

    10. Look for 'Number of upload slots per torrent' and this set to 50.

    11. Check this: 'Use additional upload slots if upload speed <90%'

    12. Now Go to >> Queuing

    13. Look for 'Maximum number of active torrents' and set this to 3.

    14. Also, set 'Maximum number of active downloads' to 3. This means at once there may be at least 3 files are downloading. (Don't increase more than this)

    15. Now go to >> BitTorrnet

    16. Check following options:

    'Enable DHT Network'

    'Enable DHT for new torrents'

    'Enable Local Peer Discovery'

    'Enable Peer Exchange'

    17. Uncheck 'Ask Tracker for scrap information'



    How to reset uTorrent settings

    1. You do not have to uninstall and reinstall uTorrent software.

    2. First completely terminate uTorrent, then go to 'RUN' (in Windows), type: %appdata%/utorrent

    3. Then when you're in the uTorrent folder, delete these two items:

    "settings.dat.old" and "resume.dat.old"

    4. And then relaunch uTorrent again.



    I noticed a difference but not what i expected

    When i say a difference don't imagine
    I think it's ok and as it is. Why the developers of utorrent did't set it this way i don't think they are fool.

    I know and as i said above i did not see what i expected. The developers of Utorrent are not crazy. They would set it this way to have the fastest client.

    I stopped using Utorrent awhile back. Try Transmission instead. Much better ;-)

    the setting shown above should never ever be used on a private tracker they lead to information being leaked to those you may not want to hear from
