How can I download Torrents faster using µTorrent on a Mac?

justin December 14, 2010

I’m using µTorrent on a Mac and see that the maximum the torrent files are downloading at is only up to 101 kbps when my internet connection is 26 mbps.

Is there some way I can maximize this? Or is this happening because I use a Linksys modem? Will the Torrents download faster if I connect to a Lan or is this the same as WiFi?

    One more thing you can do is use QoS on your network. This will reduce the fighting that your devices and programs do for bandwidth.

    You may get faster downloads.
