Torrents and traffic prioritization

Recommended Posts

I have been using buffer-bloat set to automatic when high priority traffic is detected and its been working great. 

My only problem is that when i download a torrent it detects it as high priority limiting the amount of download bandwidth it can grab. In most cases when i start a torrent i want it to take all my bandwidth so this has become a problem for me. I made sure that the custom ports i set up for high priority didn't match the port setting of the torrent client but the problem still persists. turning off anti buffer-bloat every time i start a torrent is something id like to avoid. Is there any way to stop the torrent client from being read as high priority?

Alternatively, set your port to something outside the typical ranges used by games.

Do you have your Pc set as a game console in QoS as a workaround for the manual traffic rule error on xxx.32? Try disabling that as it covers a lot of ports. If it fixes it try setting utor to Port 15xxx as that's a range I don't see used by games often.

Great suggestion! Thank you.

Changing port number on TCP helped. Sometimes the router detects high priority only for a second but this does trigger the anti bufferbloat briefly as well and i think the blizzard battle.net app is the culprit . Anyways, problem solved thanks guys ! 

Good news. Thanks for letting us know.
