How to Increase uTorrent Download Speed?
Basic uTorrent setting is a must and everyone should configure these settings before start downloading any files, movies, videos, or all other stuff. Check out some below settings that you must modify.
1: Update to the latest version of uTorrent
This is one of the most recommended things that everyone must stay aware of. Update with the latest version of uTorrent whenever available. Now the next important thing is to change some settings manually. For this see steps.
2: Change Preferences option
When you open uTorrent you will see the Preferences tab at the top. Click on this. Here you will see different options on the left pane, make some settings manually.
Click on the General tab on the left side, uncheck Check association on startup. Keep all other things same as default.
Here you have to modify connection settings. By default, some other value is given for Port used for incoming connections, but change this value to 45682. This is best port value to increase downloading speed.
On the bandwidth area by default, the values for Maximum download rate is set to unlimited (showing 0 value), if you see any other value change it to 0 value. Below there is a Global maximum number of connections change this value to 500. Leave other option as it is.
Under this option, check out for Protocol Encryption. Select Outgoing option as Forced. Also, tick Allow incoming legacy connections if it is unchecked.
Here change the value of the Maximum number of active torrents as 8. Change the value of the Maximum number of Active download to 1, so that having single download at one time makes downloading speed much faster. This is usually not recommended to have more than 1 download at one time when you are facing problem in downloading speed.
- Advanced Option
In advanced option, go to Disk Cache option. Tick Override automatic cache size and specify the size manually. Make sure the value is set high (let us say 1800 MB), this enables you to make the process faster by keeping the space much more to override cache size.
Further, you have to uncheck some boxes and check some boxes, see the below screenshot to make sure you have done correct settings. Uncheck Write out untouched blocks every 2 minutes, Write out finished pieces immediately, and Remove old block from Cache. and tick on the last one Increase automatic cache size when cache trashing.
Now the last step is changing Advanced option.
NOTE: Do not make the unnecessary change if you don’t know.
Tap on the top of the Advanced option, mark bt.allow_same_ip as *true.
Once done with all above steps, click Apply and the OK button to save the settings you have done.
