    hi guys im stumped
    as recently using lime wire its seems to be slowing connection to complete stop for browsing .ie chrome /explorer
    but still retain good speeds to download

    so i installed utorrent which seemed to fix issue for first two or so days then slowed browsing again
    so then tried vuze which was ok for few days now same issue
    i did this speed test this morning Test run on 24/10/2009 @ 09:07 AM

    Mirror: Netspace
    Data: 9 MB
    Test Time: 7.74 secs

    Your line speed is 9.76 Mbps (9763 kbps).
    Your download speed is 1.19 MB/s (1220 KB/s).so this looks ok i think adsl2 in tasmania ,,never had this issue before only in last few weeks

    any clues cheers for any help
    im using ...7300 billion modem... vista updated

    what are you uploading at when running your torrents? If you are maxing your bandwidth in and/or out, at any one time, it is going to slow down use for other services. Best way around this is either:

    a) Use QoS if the router supports it
    b) Limit torrent traffic so there is spare bandwidth for you to use.

    I'll echo the questions about bandwidth saturation and ask about half-open connections.

    Windows has severe limitations on this by design; and lots of low end routers don't cope terribly well with lots of simultaneous connections.

    Or your uploads are uncapped (in the program(s)) and it is chewing away at the download capabilities.

    Your probably chocking your download speed with your uploads. Throttle back the upload rate a bit.

    Don't forget to set a higher limit of Half-Open connections - 100-200 will suffice - using this easy tool (works for all versions of Windows).

    Then in uTorrent under Options>Preferences>Advanced set "net.max_halfopen" to 75% of your half-open limit (75 for 100 or 150 for 200). Also make sure "protocol encryption" is set to enabled.
