Slow upload speed

I'm sure there's multiple threads about this around, but eh, whatever. I seem to get a low upload speed when I try to seed torrents. My ports are open / forwarded / whatever, and torrents from other sites seem to utilize my upload speed (I have a 3.7Mbit up/down SHDSL connection.)
I've been using this site for years, but with a terrible internet connection. I got my new connection recently, and I've since wanted to contribute whenever possible. (Letting the computer seed over night, etc.)

However, what I've noticed is that my torrent client (uTorrent) randomly speeds up the upload up to max speed for a few minutes, then back down to hovering around 0.1kb/s to 5kb/s. Everything should be set up correctly.
Though, I do have a "special" kind of set up. Since my household has a few laptops, I have a wireless router, which is then connected to a dedicated SHDSL modem in bridge mode.
Simply put: SHDSL modem > ADSL modem > my PC. (Why? The SHDSL modem my ISP offered me didn't have wireless on it, which is something I need. A wireless SHDSL modem would probably be too expensive. (?) )

I'm not an network expert, so help would be appreciated. big_smile

Re: Slow upload speed

Have you tried seeding a more popular torrent with many peers?
