5. Increase the number of Max Half Open TCP connections:

The Max Half Open TCP connections specify that how many connections a torrent client should attempt to establish simultaneously at any given time. Operating Systems like Windows XP-SP2and newer, limits this to a default of 10.As torrents need a large number of simultaneous connections you can increase your torrent downloading speed by changing this figure.
A patch has been available for a while from LvlLord which modifies the TCPIP.sys file in Windows to allow a higher number of TCP connections.

After running the patch, you have to change your torrent client settings also. In uTorrent  go to
Options ->Preferences ->Advanced – >net.max_halfopen.
Set any number from 50 to 100.Dont use more than that. Also keep checking TCPIP.sys for cross verifying the number of Max Half Open TCP connections.
