    My ports are forwarded.

    Using SoulSeek

    I've tried a few different ports on each machine, and they all transfer below 1k/sec

    Network goes like this

    wireless -> AP -> Siemens SpeedStream 4200 -> internets (1.5mbit)

    Was working before I recently switched ISPs, but they say it's not them.

    My ports are forwarded. Soulseek even comfirms it.


    Any ideas?

    No, I'm in Australia now. I was on Cogeco back home and was it ever sweet.

    I'm on an ISP called aaNet here. They do prioritise traffic, but never to anywhere near 1k/sec. My torrents may drop to about 60k/sec during peak times, but that's the worst I've seen it. Right now my torrents are rockin. (Obviously tried soulseek when torrents are not maxed, or even on)
