SkinJob Posted September 11, 2008 Report Share Posted September 11, 2008 Hi, SYSTEM SPEC : this is my first post but bear with me. P4 3.0GhzAt first i was gonna be asking for help but i've found XP PRO sp2a solution that works for me and i thought i would Motorola SB5101E Modemshare it incase it helps anyone. NETGEAR WPN824v2 Router AVIRA PREMIUM Anti-virus My uTorrent downloads used to be fine (incl. firewall)(around 50 kB/s to 500 kB/s) until they suddenly it UNCAPPED 10Mb DSLslowed down to 1kB to 15kB/s and i couldn't figure outwhy. The red light had also appeared at the bottom of the uTorrent GUI. I spent god knows how long trawling the Forums and messing about with the configurations of my Router, uTorrent and FireWall looking for a solution. I have one other PC in my home network and this still ran fine. We shared the same Router and used the same type of firewall so the problem couldn't be those (i still messed with them though), i realised the only difference was that i hadn't upgraded Windows on the other pc to SP3 (because of low hard drive space incidently) so i tried uninstalling it from mine today and straight away the wee red circle changed to green and my download speeds went back to normal.This might be of use to someone if they have tried everything else. Think back, did your speed problems arise around the same time you installed sp3? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
