I’ve noticed a problem with my NC10 since I got it (even after a few reinstalations), that whenever I use a bittorrent client the network speed becomes quite slow. The funny thing is that I have a dell laptop, which is a few times faster than the NC10, and with that laptop I get speeds 3 or 4 times faster than on the NC10 ( the NC10 is never using the processor at 100%… or even close to that)
I have the same bittorrent configuration in both laptops (with the router doing some NAT, so both accept connections from outside).
I was wondering if someone had the same problem and how to solve it.
Usually in the dell laptop I get 200Kb/s, but I can’t get that speed in the NC10… at most I can get 100Kb/s, and usually I get 50Kb/s (of course I’m talking about torrents with a few thousand seeders).

I’m going to assume you use torrents to download copyright free material only.
No suggestions except triple checking your NAT settings on your router. Have you given the NC10 a static IP address so that the NAT settings will always work properly even when you reboot your NC10?
I don’t think you will be able to run your Dell and NC10 at the same time (I’m assuming you’re not trying to do this). If you are you need to make sure they’re listening on different ports and that the NAT settings in your router reflect this accordingly.December 22, 2008 at 5:45 am #176892scientistMember
“A few thousand seeders”, “copyright free material”, hmm.
OK, sorry, I won’t pre-judge.
I wonder if differences in the CPU, RAM, OS, HDD spin rate and Firewall between your two boxes might collectively cause performance differences. XP has a max simultaneous port connection limit of 10 as I recall, without a registry hack. Are you using encryption on your torrents? Have you tried having both boxes download the exact same torrent at the same time to make a fair comparison?
