OK, so, I can donwload from DIME nice and speedy, no issues, but I can't upload worth a damn. Trying to keep my share ratio in line, I always leave the torrent up and running after I DL, but it just won't go; I've tested the uTorrent settings innumerable times, it always says it's good, but still....upload speeds at a snail's pace.  Anybody got any help/ideas for a fairly computer illiterate?  Grazie.

Try with a brand new torrent and see what happens.

It's possible that with older items, that there is less opportunity to upload. New ones should have lots of peers looking to download from the swarm.

Should have mentioned that it was a new torrent, from a show Saturday night - 9/20. Going to go back and take a look when I get home tonight.

Yeah, torrents don't auto-upload to those sites. Your seeds are tapped in to as actual folks leech them. Unpopular torrents, while bolstering your collection and making torrenting shows worth it personally, will hurt your ratio if that's all you leech.

On sites such as Dime I make a habit of downloading something very large and popular, like a 5 DVD Greatful Dead show or something, even though I'll never watch it. Covers the size of all those Rush boots that I may very well be the last leecher for, ever.

Newness doesn't always ensure activity. Most sites will have some way to gauge how active torrents are. Go for something big and active, then let it sit.

I do that to some extent too. May have overdone it over the years though... I've got a 3.49 Dime ratio lately.

I also seed stuff for a long time... It's the right thing to do.

It could also be port settings... Your router firewall isn't allowing people to connect to you, to download from you.

There are tutorials that explain it better than I can here... Just Google for utorrent port settings. Or utorrent firewall settings.

I agree with grep, might be a firewall. I can never fully grasp how to set that up but I also don't sweat my share ratio anymore. Not that I grab and run but upload speeds are a lot slower than d/l so I do what I can but if someone is going to rip on me for my 0.67 share ratio, I can always counter with the fact I've uploaded original torrents of my own, some nice and previously uncirculated things, some nice vinyl rips too - so there :P

Your router needs to be setup for port forwarding. This site shows how to setup pretty much every router out there. You select your router then the program you are using and it gives you a step-by-step guide.
