open torrents kill connection (not an uploading question)


Recommended Posts


I've been using uTorrent for years now, and I've never had this problem before. About two months ago, I built a new computer. I'm using Vista Ultimate SP1. My ISP is TimeWarner, and I connect via a Linksys WMP54G wireless card. Even after I built my computer and had it connected, I torrented just fine. But now, if I have a torrent open in uTorrent (or any other torrent client), my internet speed dies. I can barely browse (google.com will take ten minutes or so to load), my anti-virus can't connect to its update servers, etc. When I close the client, it takes about five to ten minutes to get back to normal connection speeds.

I don't know what the deal is. I took my box to a friend's house, and the same thing happened. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your time.
