Does anyone else have any problems downloading torrents on Virgin media?

I've been downloading for over a year now and everything was fine until recently whenever I attempt to download anything at any point in the day, it just cuts off the internet for several hours, does this happen to anyone else?

I spoke to someone about it and apparantly there's a conflict on Bitcomet when used with Virgin Media, does anyone have any recommendations on how to resolve this?

Many thanks for the advice and hopefully some others will find a solution through here.

Sounds like traffic management to me, have you had a look at Thinkbroadband's Virgin forum at all?

No probs here. I use either utorrent or Vuze/Azureus.

Also what speed are you on and what modem have you got?
