How many torrents can I download at a time with Transmission? I don't understand why some blogs talk about 1-3 at a time. I have 10 at a time because it depends how many peers are connected. The amount of all downloads is always less than 300 kb/s, if I'm ufortunate 40-160 kb/s. When I've only got 3 active torrents I don't see any difference in kb/s from when I've got 10 active torrents.

And second: the Wire or Lan options, about choose and aleatory port when transmission starts or the block list, are importants? how to configure both and how this configuration makes better connection with Transmission?

Could you please clarify your second paragraph. I don't understand it. –  N.N. Aug 23 '11 at 14:10
Download speed is strongly related to the people sharing. My anime downloaded with transmission I do in batches of 50 and often see 2.5+ Mbits speed on a single torrent. Try with a couple of Ubuntu torrents! That should have good speeds. And +1 one on expanding on the 2nd paragraph please –  Rinzwind Aug 23 '11 at 16:36
Yes: i wonder if changing configuration in Transmission i can have higher downloads rates and why i got some options like block list or "choose aleatory port when transmission starts" that i don't understand how can improve the downloads. I'm sorry for my english, i'm from Spain. :D –  Julio Aug 23 '11 at 19:55
