don't forget to use ]PeerBlock when downloading!

You sure you aren't just maxing out your connection? Thus not leaving any overhead for internet browsing etc?

Is it a wireless conection?

give us as much info as possible please

I am not an expert on this as I do not use these peer to peer torrent download type sites.

It could be your ISP throttling your connection due to the amount of bandwidth that the downloads consume, under the peak-time fair-usage clause.

It could be your computer chip is not fast enough to handle 2 high speed downloads at the same time, so causes a timeout in the connection while it struggles to multitask the 2 streams, along with all the other programs that run, possibly including any upstream traffic that peer to peer sites impose, they use your computer to steam to other users, it is in their terms.

Spotify is one other site that does this, and I think Grooveshark as well.

It sounds like a police trace cutting into your line, tracking what you're downloading.

yup basically it blocks all the unwanted "servers" that wants to connect to your computer and computers that are monitoring your p2p activities..

Too many connections will crash some modems, try a firmware update (for the router/modem) or limit the connections you are making at one time. There is piece of software which allows you to change it, I cannot remember what it is called now... I will have a look and if I find it I will edit this post.

Cheeky! I did G O O G L E it but thought peeps on here would explain it better

All I can find is this: utorrent.com/for…449

I think the software I was remembering was for Windows XP, looks as though you can do the same settings now in your torrent client.

limit the max connections in uttorent to 80 or so (so the router can cope)

did you update utorrent lately? that might have upset it
