Re: E4200 help
I have always used Linksys routers. Dedicated servers are basically computers which people dont actually use (like you sit in front of yours and use it) and perform a specific function (like email servers) and they have a lot of system resources to perform that task and a fast connection. With torrents, you are downloading a file from many other people and while there are sites which encourage people to seed and you can get fast speed, at the end of the day you are downloading from someone else so at the end of the day despite the fact that I can download at 12mb/sec, if I was downloading from you I would only get 1mb/sec (or whatever your upstream is).
The servers at gamershell are computers which dont do anything apart from hold a database of files for people to download and they are hosted on gigabit links, which means they can upload 10 times than you can download so you know speed isnt going to be a issue. When you download a file it shows you the utilisation of each server so you know can pick one where most of the juice is free and get full speed. http downloads can still be a bit weird and you'll never get 12mb/sec from one file which is why you need to get several files going because they'll all plod along at 1-2mb/sec each until you saturate your connection.
What tier are you on. You havent mentioned it in this thread but I had it in my head that you was on 100mbit for some reason.
