You can right click on a torrent, go to "bandwidth allocation," and set it to "high". Make sure you turn it back to normal after you're finished downloading (if you plan on seeding), so you don't have something that's seeding taking up your bandwidth.
yeah that was me. It took me awhile to type up, I'm pissed that it's gone :/.
But, here's what I put (basically, it's paraphrased):
So, first things first. Have uTorrent open.
Now that we have that obvious step out of the way, time for everything else.
Hit Ctrl+P, it should lead you to the preferences menu (or you can go options->preferences, but whatever), and go to the "BitTorrent" tab. Under this, near the bottom, you should see "Protocol Encryption." Set "Outgoing" to "Forced" and check the box next to "Allow incoming legacy connections."
Next, go to "Transfer Cap" (still under preferences), and make sure IT IS NOT enabled.
Next, under "Bandwidth," you can change settings like the maximum number of connections, and the maximum number of connected peers per torrent. If you're not connecting to the number of peers you would like to, then raise that number. I would also recommend you make sure the "use additional upload slots if upload speed <90%" is checked.
