Question

When I'm using TorGuard and try to torrent stuff my download speed is never above 100kbps but when i am using any other application to download something not torrent related it downloads at 30mbps.

I have tried using UDP and TCP protocol, all Ciphers besides none and bf-cbc, I have tried opening a port for qBittorrent and nothing works

i haven't had this problem with qBittorrent  running Win 7 64 bit and Win 10 64 bit on various Intel powered systems all using the current version of TorGuard. You haven't stated so but a couple of questions since as you already suspect it has to be something from winsock on out. Does your torrent perform well however briefly if you directly connect? Face value from what you have posted here would point directly to your torrent client since TorGuard is working well for other applications. Have you tried running something like Malwarebytes just for the heck of it? It couldn't hurt and may point you in the right direction. An alternate torrent client might be worth a try as well. Just a thought.

i use qBittorrent as well and get full speed also running on win 10 1903 / 1809 builds plus a 4.4 droid tv box, but i have noticed a few times in the past bad speeds i once live chatted to someone and they said try swapping you port from 1080 > 1085 > 1090 can fix this problem also try to make sure you get the USA out the point you can manually set it , also I created a custom trackers list i have an insane one that I've built over time i do have a few i need to remove but i get a lot more connections to peers

All good info. I forgot that port swapping does make a difference. I also have noticed that A/V programs seem to have mixed feelings about TorGuard. Win Defender (Win 10) doesn't seem to care. I rely on WebRoot and well sometimes it balks it appears but eventually they get along. WebRoot is one of the quieter ones which appeals to me but who knows what the others do and that may vary from update to update. Again that's all good stuff Ebepc.

Now about that custom tracker list........ 😉

@TDog - You should really try to (proof)read and actually comprehending what you write. I am not some spelling or grammar nazi (I swear) nor am I trying to be a D-Bag (that comes naturally) but, trying to figure out WTF you are trying to say or convey gave me a headache. IDK if it is the punctuation, the structures or what exactly but MAN. Again, no offense intended at all, it just bothered me so much I created a forum account just to reply. CheeRs.

It's a pretty technical reply. The grammar, spelling and punctuation are fine. Sorry if my reply is over your head. No offense but to anyone with some technical skills my reply makes sense.

If you don't understand, just move on next time, OK? You kind of overreacted to an on-topic non-abuse reply. Do you do that often?

Please always make sure to use TCP on ports such as 443 / 80 and 1194 - TCP is best used with torrents on these ports, please also make sure to not have the proxy used in conjunction with the VPN.

I am also using qbittorrent and I get horrible download/upload speeds for the torrents and also my web browsing speed slows to a crawl as well (while using your VPN).

On this site I requested a port forward for port 55000. 

In torguard my settings are:

Tunnel Type: OpenConnect

Protocol TCP.

Server is New Jersey (I have tried others).

No proxy.

In Qbit my settings are:

Enabled Protocol: TCP

Port Used for Incoming Connections: 55000
I have DISABLED use UPnp/NAT PMP port forwarding from my router and DISABLED Use different port on each startup.

 

Any ideas how to improve torrent speeds and web speeds while using your VPN?

Are you able to seed? I would be happy with a big slowdown if torrents could actually upload.

Try opening a port to seed through a VPN, if you on a socks5 proxy forget about seeding.

Try resetting qBitorrent altogether, remove it, reinstall it and then resetup - with torrent clients sometimes this is all it needs to get things back running smoothly.
