UTorrent Tweak – Increase Utorrent Download Speed

Utorrent being an ultimate torrent client gives the best to download anything and of any size. There are a lot of Utorrent tweaks and settings for Windows 10, Windows 8.1 Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista which can make download faster, increase Utorrent download speed and you can make most of your bandwidth.

Most of the people tend to ignore their Utorrent bandwidth tweaks and settings resulting in lower upload and slow download. So Lets speed tweaks Utorrent. (Updated with settings from uTorrent 3.0 )

UTorrent Tweak – Increase Utorrent Download Speed

  1. Optimum Bandwidth Settings
  2. Transfer Cap
  3. Install DNA to accelerate content download
  4. Setting Up Ports
  5. Make use of Streaming
  6. Encrypting Network Data
  7. Removing the Connection Limit for Windows 10 or Increase  numbers of outbound connection
  8. Utorrent Port Checker
  9. Remove slow seeds and peers
  10. Make Utorrent connect an exception to Firewall
  11. Add Public Trackers

1] Optimum Bandwidth Settings

The uTorrent setup Guide helps you get the right to upload and download speed. Press [Ctrl + G] or go to options> Setup Guide. It will run tests to check how fast is your upload and download speed and set options for locations, port settings, and locations. Though the default settings will work fine if you are aware of your network speed,  you can choose from the dropdown and also select a nearby location.

It will also check for the port number here to find if it is open. Make sure you have selected the checkbox which says Automatic Port Mapping. Once your test is complete, you will your real upload speed, upload limit, connections per torrent, etc right there.

uTorrent Setup Guide After test is complete

2] Transfer Cap

Transfer cap is a new feature in uTorrent which allows you to limit total bandwidth used by uTorrent and save extra money for the over usage of bandwidth. Read more here

Utorrent Transfer Caps

3] Install DNA to accelerate content download

In the latest release of uTorrent, There is a feature DNA that lets you faster download for DNA powered contents. You can create DNA powered content and also enable it in the client to get the max out of it. Read the tutorial here. If you are using uTorrent 3.0, you can find it under preferences.

4] Setting Up Ports

Since Utorrent is a p2p client, you need to have open ports that act as an entry point for people to get data from you. If you don’t have open ports you won’t get a sufficient download rate either. Some ISP’s and routers block these ports.

If you are using routers, set it up to forward the ports on using in Utorrent. You can check to find the correct port using the options>Setup Guide. Enter a port number and check it. It will open up a new web page that can tell if the port is open or not.

Do not choose a different port till u find the correct port number. Check the above image for this. If you are using router check this page Routers Port Index, If you want to find out what are the common ports used by other programs, here is the list Cports

5] Make use of Streaming

Starting from Utorrent 3.0, There is a new streaming option that lets you listen or see videos before downloading. This makes sure you are downloading files that work and are not password protected. Read more details on Streaming here.

Increase utorrent Download Speed

6] Encrypting Network Data

Similarly, some ISP’s try to limit the bandwidth to p2p applications. uTorrent has protocol encryption which makes detection and limiting by ISP’s harder. You can enable protocol encryption by going to Options > Preferences > Bittorrent. There is a section called Protocol Encryption, choose Enabled or Force. This can speed up your bandwidth.

uTorrent BitTorrent Settings

7] Removing the Connection Limit for Windows 10/8.1/7/XP

There is a couple of software you can use to increase the number of outbound TCP connections on your Windows 10 computer. As the number of ports will increase, it will Increase Utorrent Download Speed for sure.

  • TCP-Z is an application that offers increasing the number of internet connections of your operating system. As you increase the number of connections to your Windows machine, it will speed up download because of parallel processing. If you are using Windows 10/8.1/7 or XP, you can use this tool which updates Tcpip.sys for a number of allowed connections.

TCP Z Patch Connection Limit

Here we are going to modify and replace a system file, So do it at your own risk. But it sure does work. First backup your TCPIP.Sys or you can also create a Restore Point.

  • If you are still using Windows XP Sp2, the chances are your “maximum half-open connection limit is most likely to 10. There are patches available that can remove this problem. One such patcher is http://www.lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=downloads. Download the English version and execute the exe in it.

Increase utorrent Download Speed

  • Half-open limit fix (patch) for Windows from here which actually patches your tcpip.sys file in Windows. You can increase the number of open connection and in case you want to get the original file back, it can restore Tcpip.sys for you.
Increase number of connection to TCPIP.SYS
Increase the number of connections to TCPIP.SYS

This is what it says (Half-open limit fix (patch) for Windows)

P2P (peer-to-peer) programs (µTorrent, BitComet, eMule, P2P TV etc.) are generally the most affected programs.

As they use up all 10 of the half-open connections, other Internet activity, especially the loading of web pages, can be extremely slow.

The delay before the beginning of opening can make some tens seconds. This happens regardless of the speed of your Internet connection.

8] Utorrent Port Checker

In Order to check Port forwarding is configured correctly, I would suggest you go to Utorrent Port Checker, ignore the error it gives for the first time, and add the port number you have forwarded in the text box. Hit Enter and see what result you get. This will tell you accurately if your port is forwarded correctly.

This is an important factor as Port forwarding to increase Utorrent download speed.

9] Remove slow seeds and peers

In case you find the seeds or peers are slow, drop them off. The more the number better it is. If you get a connection which has less number of seeds, you are advised to remove them.

10] Make Utorrent connect an exception to Firewall

This is one of the crucial settings you should do. In case your firewall is blocking on a number of connections for Utorrent, add this program to the exception list so you get high download speed.

11] Add Public Trackers for slow seed trackers

This is another way of increasing the download speed by adding public trackers into your torrent’s tracker list. This is helpful when the number of seeders goes low in count and you will have to wait for a longer time to download the file.

This list of public trackers you will need to add in your tracker list for a particular torrent which is downloading very slow. Right-Click on the torrent which is very slow and goes to Properties. Then under the General tab, you’ll notice a list of existing trackers for the selected torrent. Just paste the above list right there.

You will also need to Enable DHT and Peer Exchange by selecting the appropriate checkboxes in the same screen.

Additional tips to use uTorrent

1] Settings Download Speed Schedules

uTorrent like any other download manager has a scheduler but it goes one step ahead. You can speed limits during a certain period of time. To use it go to Options > Preferences >Scheduler. Click on Enable Scheduler. Here you can set upload and download rate when the schedule is enabled. You can see scheduler table where you can click on any day and give your preferences to Limit, Turnoff or Full speed and set the bandwidth usage. Dark green is full speed, light green is limited speed, and white is turned off.

Schedule utorrent

2] Create New torrent and add them to trackers

You can create your own torrent file and upload to trackers. Select from menu, File > Create New Torrent > Add file or directory. Enter the address of the tracker that you want to upload, Give a name and save it. You can also select if you want to start seeding now or even you can make it private. Now you can pass it to torrent or friends.

Increase utorrent Download Speed

All these settings can definitely help you to make a maximum usage out of your bandwidth. I have tested them and it works great for me. I am sure it will work for you and increase Utorrent download speed.

3] How to use the user the web interface

uTorrent has a web interface called as Web UI. This allows you to control uTorrent remotely through a browser. You can do pretty much the same things you can do with the program on your computer. To enable WebUI, go to

Utorrent 3.0 > Options > Preferences > Remote:

All you need is set your username, password, and security question and use the same credential to log in to your web account at web.utorrent.com.

uTorrent Web UI

Utorrent 2.2.1 and below > Options > Preferences  > WebUI

Click on Enable Web interface. Enter the username and password. Now to access your Utorrent from web open url which should be like this http://Machine_name_or_IP:Port/gui. It will ask for a user name and password. Now you can manage your uTorrent download from anywhere you want and even download when you are not at home.

  1. If you’re using uTorrent v1.4 or higher make sure your upload limit is set to 6kb/s or higher, otherwise your download rate will automatically be limited to 30kb/s. 🙁

  2. Hi I am William. I have a 128kbps Broadband connection.
    Please can someone tell me about the correct settings i should use to get the maximum from my bandwidth. My current download speed is limited to a maximum of 12kbps….
    i am having version 1.8.1
    Please email me at [email protected]

  3. Hi,
    Currently i’m using utorrent version 1.8 and my download speed only goes as high as 10 kB/s and i’m living in Vietnam. my email is [email protected] and anybody knows how to increase the speed please email me by this mail.

  4. Hi I am saravanan. I have a 128kbps Broadband connection.
    Please can someone tell me about the correct settings i should use to get the maximum from my bandwidth. My current download speed is limited to a maximum of 12kbps….
    i am having version 1.8.1
    Please email me at [email protected]

  5. Sarvaran u will need to get 256 kbps Broadband connection only then the speed will gain some momentum. I have 256 kbps and the speed limit goes upto 35 kbps or sometimes more than that.

  6. hi all,
    I’ve moved to utorrent from vuze…
    With vuze i have had downloads as high as 1.5MB/s and my internet connection is 24MB broadband for which i sync at aprox 16Mbit/s with aprox 1Mbit/s upload…

    Speed isn’t so much an issue, what is is that i’m having problems with everything else that uses the internet…
    in firefox everything is fine untill i start running utorrent or vuze…
    then it stops connecting to webpages and/or displays them wrong…
    It is almost like i’m loosing packets or vuze/utorrent is hijacking the ports that firefox is using…

    However this is not limited to one PC, all the PC’s and servers on my network experience this problem and it’s not limited to microsoft windows it does it under linux too…
    So if one PC is running a torrent downloader all the others struggle to access the internet… internal connections are fine…

    My router is a netgear DG814, the port that utorrent is using is manually forwarded…

    on the PC that i using for torrents i have modifyed tcpip.sys to 50 half open connections from the default of 10 without any change…

    Anyone got any ideas?

  12. Hi, guys, I have the biggest problem of all.
    My top speed gets to 229 kbps. I checked the speed through http://www.speedtest.net
    I have a 256 kbps broadband connection. from three months my speed was 30kbps

    BUT KNOW IT IS 0.3 KBPS!!!!!! I tried all steps. what do I do? if u need my system details:

    Windows Version: Vista Home Basic
    Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.40 GHz 3.39 GHz
    Random Access Memory (RAM): 1.00 GB
    System type: 32-bit operating system
    Hard Disk Capacity: 48.8 GB

  14. wow! i only applied two of the changes mentioned in this article and my download speed shot up from 50 kbps to over 300. if i could only comprehend the other components of this tutorial the possibilities would be truly unfathomable. bravo!

  15. Hey i am using torrent 1.8.1 and i have ADSL connection , router(modem) is Huawei hg510 , port forwarded manually and i have internet connection of 1mb/192kbps BUT my uttorent download speed doesnt get higher than 10 kbps(even with good seeded torrents)! It’s really frustrating . . . Can someone please help. THANKS IN ADVANCE .

  16. I am using utorrent 1.8.1 and I’m on 384 kbps speed connection. I get download speed of around 40-44kbps when I download 1 torrent. Is that speed ok for my connection, or still I can tweak and increase speed further? Any ideas please?

  17. Calijace:

    You should be able to download a bit faster than that with a 384 connection. Have you already followed all the steps above? Have you checked your port for correct forwarding?

  18. Update of active public trackers from above list:


  19. Hi,

    I am having 256kbps broadband connection. I have installed utorrent. But downloading speed in between 1kb/s to 10 kb/s(mostly 5 and kb/s).

    How much speed should it reach with 256kbps connection.
    Plz help to increase the speed of utorrent.

    some one plz help me……………………….

    I am really frustuated with this slow speed.

  20. im not even getting 10kbs and im only downloading 1 file andhave a very fast internet connection. plz help

  21. To all the posters asking for specific settings: It’s probably a lack of seeds, and if it’s not, I don’t think the host has time to tweak each of you via email.

    I have an uberfast broadband connection, and sometimes I get 0.01 kB upload speeds.

  22. hello,

    I tried to use the public trackers. It was also give to enable dht and peer exchange, But these boxes are not active . Please help

  23. Hey serously my network is **** up, at the max it was at 36 kB/s, then i used the tracker list, and my downloading went down to max 3 kB/s..
    i erased the tracker list but it is still very ****
    and yeah i did enable DHT and peer exhange..
    but it still **** me up so bad ! :s

  24. Hi everyone

    google for torrent calculator

    first link

    there you may look for your settings

    ive got 384 kbit/s too

    40-44 are good

    maximum is 48 kbyte/s

    but u cant get them cause of running messengers and your connection basicly takes 3-4 kbyte/s

  25. And its not


    cause first will happen if you paste the list in uTorrent.



  26. My uTorrent download speeds went way up after I restricted the upload rate to about 9k while downloading. I don’t know if this was a Windoze thing, or just DSL, but download speeds went from something like 25k to 140k.

    Yeah, the number of seeds is critical. If there’s just one or two seeds, the rate will depend on how much bandwidth that seed can spare for you… could be fast, or it could take days or weeks. Be patient, and help out by seeding scarce files.

    If you’re frustrated because a torrent doesn’t work, browse to the tracker for that torrent. It may be private, and require you to register. This can be worth the trouble, since some sites take pride in maintaining impressive libraries of stuff (like TV shows from a particular country).

    Also, don’t overlook older P2P networks… they may not be as fast as torrents, but stuff hangs around longer so with patience you’ll get what you’re after.

    Starhub(my ISP) was blocking connection to utorrent but after this tutorial,my speed from 10kb/s became 147kb/s i am really grateful to you keep up the good works man thanks a lot.!

    If you want to increase your speed dome more by 20% press Ctrl and Alt and Del to get the task manager and go to process and search for utorrent.exe right click and click on set priority then click Realtime this will make windows give more resources to utorrent thus increasing it’s speed drastically.

  38. i can’t help u for d speed but i can give u an idea
    leave your computer open for overnight with downloads started….!!!

  39. As long as my download speed is 100kbyte/s. I will be grateful because of my slow connection 7.2mbps. I have a problem, whenever i download a file with a direct link or torrent, they never reach 1mbyte/s. WHY. I search for google that 7.2 mbit/s is 0.9 mbyte/s. But the highest I reach is only 400+ (direct link using IDM) and 100+ (torrent using utorrent). any suggestion?

  40. The two patches appear to do the same thing, one with a command-line interface and the other with a GUI. Am I right?

  41. What the hell is with all these dudes from India listing their email addresses, which all consist solely of their first and last names at a free email hosting site, and all comments that are worded almost the exact same way? Must be the same dude desperately spamming the site under different names, or maybe they’re all automatons… FYI to all you Indian dudes, this guide is all you get! If you know BOTH the download AND upload speeds of your connection, set just under the maximums for both upload and download in uTorrent, and follow the rest of this guide! If your speeds still suck after that, its because your ISP is throttling you torrent bandwidth or the tracker and most of the peers are not near you geographically.

  42. i have a broadbant connectionn and then too my internet speed is not increasing above 25- 30 kbps…………..i tried the above sugessions bt they didnt worked………….what should i do………. please tell as soon as possible………..

    3.hostname not found
    4.connection closed by peer
    5.failure: unregistered torrent pass
    can anyone please tell me the reason for this, and more importantly what can i do about it?

  60. @leoxle

    The speed you download also depends on the speed the file is being sent to you. If the server(s) can only upload @ 100kb/s, you’ll only get 100kb/s.

    That said, you’ll rarely get speeds higher than 300-500kb/s on most servers.

  64. if you want to speed up ur downloading speed simply go to the properties of downloading file and in tracker, that trackers that are working copy and paste them again and again

  65. guys if u have 1.4 or 1.4< versions of uTorrent then plz change ur upload speed to 1kb/s as then only ur file will be able to download at 30kb/s>. I don’t recommend this for LAN conenctions.

  66. hi guys…..i have 100Mbps connection but my downloadding speed remains confined between 10-30 kB/s…i have done all acoording to the tutorial but dont recieve the benifit…..plz some one figure it out…..

  67. i have tested my downloading speed through speedtest.net..it comes out to be
    downloading speed 2.25Mb/s
    Uploading speed 0.26 Mb/s

    tell what to do now to increase my torrent downloading speed…….?

  68. All of u should know that there is difference between kbps and KBps
    when u donwload u get speed in KBps so to find ur max speed u need to convert ur broadband spedd i.e in kbps to KBps. in easy words just didve ur kbps speed by 8 to find ur max down speed. for example

    if u have 256 kbps internet speed then ur download speed will be 256/8= 32KB/sec thats ur max speed.

    similarly for 512kbps connection ur speed will be 62KB/sec

  69. hi

    i am using bsnl broadband connection 256/kbps home UL plan
    but i get download speed upto 29/kbps
    can u snd me some tweks where i can get much higher download speed

    thank u

  70. hey dude i too want some of your tips .

    have a 256 kb/sec plan and i get max 30 kb /sec as the download in utorrent and non torrent download (by idm).but after i paid for the first
    month the last day i got a magic speed of 50-55 kb/sec.

    how does that happen and now why is it not happening again.
    i want to get that speed. please help me out.and send some tips for modyfying the settings in u=torrent so that i get a better speed than 30 kb/sec.

    yours -=spyketrash=-.

  71. hey can u tell me the way i use utorrent 1.8.5 but my speed is restricted to 30.00 kb/s i will be thankful to u..

  72. @ Spyke

    Spyke dude, the most basic thing you should know is that its not 256 kilo Bytes per sec it is Kilo Bits per sec in your case. 🙂
    (1 Byte = 8 bits) so just divide 256/8, thats your internet speed. I know it hurts but this is what they do to attract customers(bloody cheaters).

    get a better internet plan.

    @ apurva

    Its the same thing happening with you tooooo.

  73. hi…earlier i was using utorrent 1.8.4 and i had tweaked it and i used to get speed of around 180-190 kBps but i had to format my laptop and now i have installed utorrent 1.8.5 and have tried to tweak it but the top speed i get is 30-40 kBps…moreover after one movie finishes downloading the speed dies and the downloads do not even start if i restart utorrent…then i have to uninstall and reinstall utorrent to get back to 30-40 kBps..please help me…its driving me nuts….you can even email me at [email protected]

  78. hi i m using bsnl evdo for that how to get a maximum speed in u torrent? when i download using free download manager the speed exits upto 40kb/s but in u torrent its very slow…

  79. Don’t be selfish while using u torrent by restricting upload rates…

    coz the more u restrict the more u’ll see downfall in ur download rate

    im havin 256 kbps… my max down speed is 30kbps due to my choppy and
    frustrating isp provider{BSNL}….

    when i restricted the up rate to 5kbps i got only around an average of

    12kbps dl speed….

    then i fortunately got into this post and followed the steps and i changed my max up speed to 22kbps…..

    now im havin an average of 27kbps dl speed and 18 kbps up speed at the same time!!!!

  80. please help!
    i have a connection of 64 kbps
    when i download a file with Bittorrent downloader the max speed is 7.0 kB/s!
    please can someone help me????

  81. hi guys. i am having maximum 512kb connection.

    usually i down seeded files . some times my speed goes to +98kbs,but most of the time it is 20kbs.

    Please can some one tell me wats happening????

  82. hi
    my broadband speed is 265kb/s(mtnl).i get a speed of around 25kb/s when the seeders are very high.could u plz tell me how to modify the settings in u torrent so that i can get higher speed.
    plzz e mail at- [email protected]

  83. is there anyone who help me…… i m using adsl2 router……my upload and download speed is 128kbps……but it comes to be 25kbps when i download any file……but ut access on 128kbps or more….please help me in increasing the download speed in an file.

  84. sorry i had a problem with downloading speed since long time ago, i have no idea how to deal with it, even after reading article from various website. can you help me out ??? right now my download speed is only 7kb/s… please email me for steps and precaution thanks

  85. Hey Everyone…i had mentioned my problem earlier but was not able to find any solution for it anywhere…i tried all permutations and combinations of all such settings but none worked fir me…i can’t say anything about you all…i am using bsnl 2Mbps connection and the dl speed which i get is maximum of 200kBps and mostly it varies around 140-180 kBps without any tweaks…n i am using utorrent 1.8.5. so basically the thing is the faster your internet speed the higher will be the download speed you’ll get. mostly the download speed is 1/10th the internet speed…so that means if you download any file using explorer or chrome or any other browser…you will get a high dl speed but using torrents the speed will be 1/10th that of your internet speed…and there is one more important point…which is infact the most important…the difference between kBps and kbps…which i assume most of you know…so do’t be fooled by the service providers who always quote the speed in kbps…
    hope i was able to help out some of you folks

  87. Hi all.

    I’m very new at all this so I hope someone can help me out. I have just changed carriers to iinet in Australia, also I am using a Belkin w/router. I mainly use utorrent for my downloads and at 1st my speed was over 900 kb/s now its slowed to way under 50 kb/s. I asked iinet and also Belkin whats going on but all I get is that my speed is running at its maximum and there is no problem that they can see. I told them normally it would take 5 mins or so to download a movie ( 700MB ) now it takes me over 1 – 2 days. I have tried ozspeedtest and these are my results. Test was done on the 4th Jan 2010 2:30pm.

    Speed line is 5.42 Mbps ( 5420 kbps )
    Download speed is 678 KB/s ( 0.66MB/s ).

    Can someone please, please help me with either configs or just so I can get my maximum speed.

    Any help would be greatful.

    Thanking you.

  89. Hi Ashish,

    I have uT on a mac v 0.9.2. My internet speed is 3.35 Mb/s and my download rate in uT is between 30 and 50 kB/s. Could this be improved? The fire wall on the mac is not enabled and router settings dont seem to have any rules for blocking. I have forced encryption in uT preferences, 100 connections per torrent (would be lucky if I ever had that many!)

    Could you help me any further?

    Many thanks in advance!

  90. EDIT-

    I have now set upload limit to 3/4 my internet upload speed (set at 40kB/s), I have also set up a static IP and forwarded the port I use for uT. Also changed encryption from forced to enabled. I am getting download speeds of around 80kB/s max now…..ok just saw it peak at 160. 🙂

    Could my speed be improved further?

  91. – now achieving around max of 320 kB/s. Many thanks for this post, has been a great help!

    i have seen a previous post achieving around 700kB/s. Do you think my speeds could increase further?

    plzzz giv me some suggesion dude!!!

  96. I have been downloading a fairly large torrent, which has had 0 to 1 seed on and off. I thought I saw a correlation between download speed and the times that the single seed was not active. While I watched, several times the single seed would drop out, and my download speed would shoot from 150 kB/s to 300-400 kB/s. Then today, also while I watched, about 20 peers finished downloading within a few minutes of each other, and became peers. Immediately, my download speed dropped to around 30 kB/s and stayed there for several hours. Now, instead of being the average speed, 150 kB/s is the maximum speed I am reaching.

    Am I missing something blindingly obvious?

  97. Hi,

    goodluck !!

  108. Most of these people are Indians confused with kbit/s versus kbyte/s – 2 different units of measurement.

    Most of these guys are actually getting what their “broadband” speeds will provide – they all have 128kbps, 256kbps etc, and report speeds of about 10 or 20 or 30 kbyte/s, which is fairly accurate.

    I run an ISP in India, but unlike other ISPs which even now still only offer speeds of 1-2mbit/s, we offer up to 100mbit/s, and hope to launch 1gbit/s soon.

    We try to avoid this question by stating clearly in our marketing material things like mbit/s and mbyte/s, but we still get the question too damn often.

    @N S Ganesh Kumar: your speed is not 100mbit/s. BSNL offers no such product (except to corporates, and I doubt you’re paying 17 lakhs per month for your net connection).

    @Rahul: your college is rightfully limiting torrent speeds. They spend enough on net connections without you hogging their bandwidth. Even then, they probably do not have 100mbit/s to the real internet, this is likely the speed of the LAN.

    To everyone else in India, you are probably maxing out your connection already. If you are on 128kbps or 256kbps and getting 10-25 kbyte/s download, it will not go faster. Pay for faster broadband or deal with the slow speed.

  109. i had fun reading the comments.. XD

    @Matthew: you are very correct. the company internet bandwidth here is so fast. XD
    (i’m working on an international company)
    anyway, will try these “tweaks” when i get home and boot my laptop with residential speed. (provided by local ISPs)

  112. hey everybody, first of all, something u should know that download speed is 1/8 of ur connection speed. Example: Suppose u have 512 kbps connection ur maximum download speed will be 512/8=64 kbps and ur maximum torrent download speed will be 80% of ur max download speed in this case 51.2 kbps. if u do not know ur connection speed than go to Speedtest and measure connection speed.
