I found a handy utility called Netlimiter that allows you to set download/upload limits on individual applications. Im using it to throttle the WoW torrent because it was taking upp my upload bandwidth and did'nt provide a setting to set it myself.

Ive set my upload to 2kps so I now have plenty of bandwidth to surf and play games. I opened my download all the way. I find it very rude of a company like Blizzard to hog my upload and not provide a means to throttle it.

And the reason why I've uploaded more than I've downloaded so far. Tongue

Thanks so much Daehawk . . . I can't believe what a difference that little program made for my download.  I jumped from and average of 10-15kbs download speeds to 55-80kbs.  What a difference!

Thanks for the info Daehawk.

I like the idea of bandwidth sharing, but I have a severaly limited upstream bandwidth on my ADSL, so I rarely use it because it slows down everything else.  The app you mentioned should help when I use things like bittorrent, which for some reason they removed the bandwidth limit sliders from the version I have.

Their early BT client had a user selectble speed setting.  They ripped that out pretty quick though, and the problems started piling up.  The fact that the Blizzard BT client does not limit itself to your upstream bandwidth has been the single most specific complaint about it on their tech boards.  Yet...they show no signs of fixing it.

It was part of the reason why I haven't tried the game yet.  I am limited to 200mbs/up per day by the university.  Any time I go over, I get my download speed cut in half.  There should have been a limit on the up from the very start.

Use this version of BT - allows you to set your own upload rates

Back in the good days (in alpha) you didn't use a Bittorent to download content/patches, it was straight off their server and all was great.

They better be sure that their first patch better be small on release date

This is my favourite BT-Client as far as you don't need a GUI for multiple shares (then it would be Azureus). Let's you tune your up-/download and much more (UPnP, download specific file first, etc.). Netlimiter has one big advantage when playing online: it keeps your Ping stable, Shooterplayers love that =) I was not able to get a stable ping, even if I had set eMule (without Netlimiter) to 3 kB/s upload...

But it costs money =(
