Why is roommate's utorrent crippling our connection?


Recommended Posts

Three of the people in our house use utorrent and download on a regular basis. Whenever Scott or myself are downloading using bittorrent, our connection is fine and no one else in the house is affected. However, when our Andrew opens utorrent and is downloading even a little bit, it absolutely cripples our network. When someone is playing Halo 3 over Xbox live, their connection drops to red and stays that way. He can be dowloading at 100kb/sec but it will bring our 10 megabit connection to a standstill. Why would it only happen when Andrew uses utorrent? He has limited his connections and his download speeds are about a 1/10th of our actual bandwidth. PLEASE HELP because he insists on downloading all the time.
