The red icon may appear because you've overloaded your connection slightly with too many connections or half open connections.

You may also be throttled at certain times-of-day. In the middle of the night and early morning you may be able to get higher speeds than at other times. Afternoons to evening/night from about 4 PM to midnight is likely the slowest. Your ISP may simply be too overloaded with everyone's traffic to reach your normal max speeds during peak hours.

yes ur right about the throttled times.i never download within those times.but sometimes the icon is red or green whenever i do a restart

i havent changed any settings and i know my ports are opened.i just find it strange that its been fine for so long.

edit:im currentley downloading at max speed with the red icon on

is this right?????
