daiver Posted June 20, 2008 Report Share Posted June 20, 2008 Is it possible for some torrents to cause Internet connection problems? I downloaded 2 torrents yesterday from a known tracker and when I open them, my Internet connection starts lagging. Websites take forever to load or timeout, etc.Whenever I stop them, everything goes back to normal.I have 12K upload speed and have it capped to 5K, which also limits my download speed to around 30K, far from my speed limit. I try to reset the router, the modem, etc. Nothing seems to work but stop those torrents and even after I stop them, it takes a while for the connection to become normal again.I tried using Azureus to download them with the same result, so this is not a uTorrent problem but I ask here because I get the feeling you guys know what you're talking about.Any help is greatly appreciated.Thanks!
