Edit Reason: typo
Ok do you understand the difference between kBps and kbps????
kB = kiloByte
kb = kilobit
8 kilobits = 1 kiloByte
Typically ISP's and speed tests will report speeds in kbit/sec (or Mbit/sec or Gbit/sec if you are really lucky LOL) where as most software on your computer will report speeds in kByte/sec.
So a lot of people get that confused.
Is it possible that you set your upload limit thinking you were setting kbit/sec but you actually set it in kByte/sec? That is a difference of a factor of 8 (or 8 * X if you prefer).
That is a very common mistake.
Or in your case you might have set the limit to be about 1 Mbit/sec. 1 Mbit = 128 kByte
since you are seeing about 100 KByte/sec that is a strong possibility.
If you really want to limit your upload speed to 1 kbit/sec . . . I would strongly advise against that because your download speed is going to suffer. A number around 10 kbit/sec would be much better. (10 kbit/sec = 1.25 kByte/sec)
So are you asking how to change your max allowed upload speed???
If so what version of Vuze are you using and do you use Classic UI or the Vuze UI?
I only use the Classic UI LOL so I could only tell you the shortcut if you are using classic as well ;-). If you are using Vuze UI I would have to explain the longer method.
I think from that screen shot that you are using the Classic UI but it never hurts to ask!
