Strange Upload Issue

Hello people,

I am the most interesting problem ever.

So my max upload speed is roughly 1mbps, 100~kbps.

And when I'm seeding files via uTorrent, I can max out.

So here's the intriguing part...

When I try uploading to anything else (FTP / Filehosting sites), my upload plummets and maxes out at around 40~kbps.

Not too sure how this happens as it's only recently (past month or so) that this occurred.

Unno if anyone happens to know any possible faults that may be affecting this.

If it would have been other way round- your ISP would be bottlenecking.?

as what you say- router port forwarding issue perhaps?

Hmms, how would it be router port forwarding?

Since as I mentioned if I use let's say either Megaupload / Mediafire to upload my files.

I'd have to open a port for my browser? =X

For FTP I can sorta understand that as a possibility, but I never had to forward port for my FTP.

Maybe the ISP is slowing down the upload rate on known http and ftp ports? Can be, never know.

Other thing that could do this is cFosSpeed. Yes the software is good but has caused these type of problems in past with me. Try disabling traffic shaping.

You should also look into the firewall settings.

Dunno... if anything uploads are always slower, than downloads might want to try Medifire- it displays speed.

Regarding Port forwarding- if you'd open router settings check Connection for any limit on them being limited.

EDIT:

sorry, read again, that you dont have problem maxing upload speed

:dunno:

Right, when torrenting, I can seed at max speed.

But if I try uploading to filesharing sites, then it seems to severely cut my speeds.

Like for example:

Mediafire will be around 40kbps

Megaupload will be around 50kbps

Funny thing is...

I can run them BOTH and then it'll equal out my max speeds.

But if it's just using one of them, then it caps out at those rates.

Which I find weird cause this didn't happen in the past.

Also no firewall is installed/enabled, so it can't be that.

Never set limits via router settings.

Very strange.

Could it be, that you are looking for as what is not problem then?

could be (not unknown), that it is the speed allowed by servers for upload itself?

just a thought...

Have you check your max connection numbers in the program and combed through to look for any problems with uT itself.. and do your results differ when doing a speed test without uT?

@Atasas: Shouldn't be the site, unless they set a global cap. But I tested with a Premium Account on MegaUpload and it's at same limit, which as a Premium member, there should be no limits on the Down/Up speed.

@heath28m: Even with uTorrent off (Which it is now), no difference in upload speed.

Usually while uploading files to file hosting site like megaupload decrease our speed bcoz sometimes the site also use flash which decrease our speed i use file uploader to upload files which increase my speed 2 to 3 times.try it if it works for you

Thanks for the suggestion, but I gave it a shot and no luck, still same rate as from uploading directly to the site.

Will try a few of those test later on since now busy with work related stuff.

But I tried the Glasnot and no issues there.

Not sure if that helps.

Sorry for the triple posting, you can merge my posts if you want.

But another update.

My friend suggested I call up my ISP to see if they happened to have blocked Port 21, I don't know what that is, but i asked my ISP. And they said they don't block anything.

And speedtest.net is what they use to measure speeds, and I tried that and it gives me the speeds I have.

So he thinks it may be the filesharing sites at fault which I find weird too.

Sicne I'm able to max out if I just run two uploads using sep. tabs.

Hmm, strange crap indeed =/

And it sucks in my position, since I fansub, so I do a LOT of uploading to direct sites, sometimes 6GB+'s at one time.

All the posts are followup posts (and after some amount of duration) so I don't think there's any need to merge. :)

How many sites did you try? Lets say, even Dropbox is giving low speeds?

Never tried that site, shall give it a go later on tonight, since I'm still slowly upping a few things.

EDIT:

Oh wait, that's a program.

Tested Mediafire/Senddspace/Megaupload

Will try a few others tonight.

2nd EDIT:

Additional Sites tested:

Uploading.com

zShare.net

GigaSize.com

Same results, funnier thing, some are slightly slower.

Dropbox is a software from Dropbox site. Dropbox (site) is like an online backup site (2GB total free) similar to Windows Skydrive. And you don't need the software to upload there, well, not compulsory. You can also try skydrive. These two are not so genuine filesharing sites (not used too much for warez, etc.).
