MUST READ :- BEST TORRENT CLIENTS DOWNLOADERS
Setup Bandwidth And connections
You must setup your bandwidth and connection setting before starting a torrent download. Your BitTorrent client’s settings options will let you enter figures for this. Global maximum number of connections gives the maximum number of connections so that a BitTorrent client can make for any P2P exchange. You can setting this up to high, but it does not mean the higher speeds. By setting it on high would take up useless bandwidth. For our 256kbps connection we have a setting of 130.
Setup Force Start Option
Many users use this option so that their torrents does not get queued. Please do not ‘Force Start’ your Torrents. We always think that, what this option does. But it doesn’t make the download start smoother. It damages the file. Force Start is a way to start torrents to bypass the queue settings and seeding priority. By this your download speed will actually suffer.
Limit Your upload Rate
The upload speed varies while downloading some torrent files. It effects on the download speed and reduces it speed. By default it is set on the “0” or “unlimited”. You must change its value. Just keep it high initially and then gradually bring it down towards the middle of the download.
Limit Your Upload Rate Seriously you can be generous by seeding. You should not disable it. Set the value to “1”, because it is the minimum value here. Minimum the upload rate, increases the download speed.

Get Through The Firewall
Windows Firewall is used to manage the incoming and outgoing connections from your system through internet. Windows Firewalls can block all incoming BitTorrent connections coming from outside. You can allow a firewall connection and manually configure it. Allow the BitTorrent client by checking it.
As you can see in the image, just follow the route. Enable Firewall Exception. This will increase download speed by bypassing the blockage.
Go For Healthy Seeds And Peers
A Peer depends on any computer participating in the download and upload of a torrent file, and a Seed or seeder is anyone who has one complete copy of the file being shared across the torrent network. But a Leech is the person who does not have the complete file yet but has joined the network to download it. The leecher can become a seeder when he downloads the entire file and then shares it to across the network.
The thumb rule says speed also depend on seeds count. The higher the seed count, healthier the torrent file. You must find the torrent files with a great Seed and Leech count. Their speed is higher than others. It makes a quick pick up to the download.
Choosing The Right BitTorrent Client
You can find a lot of torrents clients on the internet. But use the better clients out there like Bittorrent, uTorrent, Bitcomet or Vuze. Choose the right BitTorrent Client. Because all the clients doesn’t updated and latest technologies to handle P2P. Please make sure these clients are compatible with your system.
Set Your Download Limit
You can set the download files list at a time, means that how many files you can start and queue at a time. There are all types of torrent file available, healthy and medium. If you set the maximum number of active downloads to more than “2”, it will download continuously without any down speed. Set your download limit to “0”, because “0” presents the unlimited rate.
Remove unnecessary Files
The torrent files contains many files with it other than the main file you want to download. Just Remove Unnecessary Files in case of downloads to save your data and time to download. This contains some sample files and text file. If you doesn’t need those just uncheck them before downloading.
