    and in b4 'dont use them'

    you could set the download priority to low on utorrent should free your net up a bit
    just to add right click on each of your downloads and set download priority to low also make sure you havent selected the grant all bandwith for this download option which i think will be done by right clicking the download.

    Virgin are the worst BB throttlers in the country. Their speeds are pointless as they throttle anything that makes them worthwhile.

    the only other fix i can think of is to change isp go with be there great.

    change port? enable encryption?

    p.s. are the web pages not loading 100% of the time or are they just really slow to load and timeout sometimes? Torrents sap your bandwidth so slow web browsing when a particularly fast one is downloading will always occur

    all the time, but some forums are mentioning turning off the firewall setting on the 'super hub' ?

    seriously just do what i said before maybe just set it to medium priority should help you out

    Tools>Internet Options>Connections(tab)>LAN Settings.

    Make sure no proxy is set, and its Automatically detecting settings.
