    Carlos,

    There are a lot of factors that's responsible for this. Vuze is a BitTorrent client. Rather than downloading a file from a single source, the BitTorrent protocol allows users to join a "swarm" of hosts to download and upload from each other simultaneously.

    A lot depends on how many users are currently sharing / downloading the same file, and if you are using a paid / free bittorrent software, and other users as well as your internet connections performance.

    If you know the exact issue, may be we can help you zero in on the problem !

    @Carlos - You are 'Giving out' more than you are 'Getting'. In simple words, you have faster connection and more resource at this point (you are a better 'seed'), and your 'leeching' is not to full potential.

    So that's the best you can get at this point.

    Looks like you are downloading something which is not too much in fashion :)

    First of all, change the port 6881, choose a new port anything between 49160–65534!
    If you are using a router, you than have to forward the port you using!
    Just take a look here:

    Portforwarding:

    Good luck!

    Why don't you try with a different torrent client?

    The default setting and config of each is different. That may make some diff.

    The maximum speed you can get is 64KB/s.
    Just take look here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_rate_units

    A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks!
    It is needed when you have one internet connection and more than one computer and you want to connect all computers to the internet!

    yes more seeds = more download speed

    but as keoraf said ...u cant get over 64 KBps ...even if there are million of seeds

    ISP's always claim their speed in Kbps which is 8th times of KBps
    (b=bits, B=bytes, 8 bits = 1 byte)

    => 512 Kbps = 64 KBps :p:
