If you have not done so already, open your ports for Transmission. I just recently noticed that my ports were closed and that was the reason why I have been getting really bad download speeds. Just add this to your firewall script and reboot (Admin > Scripts > Firewall). Port 25000 should be the default unless you changed it, I added UDP just in case. Code: iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 25000 -j ACCEPT iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 25000 -j ACCEPT If your using windows I also recommend using transmission-remote-dotnet or another Add-on from HERE.
