decon Posted September 25, 2008 Report Share Posted September 25, 2008 Ok, so a very complex issue that I've been browsing as much as possible to fix. I recently started my COMCAST cable connection 16mb line. I tested at 16.5mb dl and 2.5mb upload, WHILE torrenting on both nodes.I have a Linksys Wrt54G-TM Beta @Home Router. Port forwarding has been provided for both torrenting nodes in my apartment. I have forwarded through both firewalls and the router.My personal computer is working fine, with great upload speeds (50-90kB/s) and moderate downloads (10-200kB/s weighted towards 10-40kB). I can browse when both nodes are running, but slowly. My green check is working and I personally use uT, AVG Internet Security & Norton System. My roommate is using BitTorrent and I've forwarded his line and adjusted his upload/downloads to mine, however whenever his node is running, our entire network is bogged down to hell. He can't browse the web at all, google is it and it takes a while to open. But I can, and some others can access port 80 services, however slowly (my computer runs almost fine, but I can tell the network has a load on it.) He runs AVG and windows firewall. His download speeds are generally faster, however I attribute this to individual trackers and the torrents he is downloading, and as we all know, each tracker/torrent is hit or miss on speeds (IF this is not so, please direct me how to ensure maximum seed connections, I generally see 200 seeds, but only connect 2 to 20, while still offering significant uploading speeds). And he also has more seeds connected usually. My computer is vastly superior in hardware though.None the less, our browsing capability is terrible while torrenting, and when he shuts his node down, speeds resume to lightening fast for the rest of the network (wireless). I am generally hardlined into my router, but I checked and wireless was just as fast when I pulled my cat5 out. My computer does not get as slow as everyone elses for some reason. His ping is 2.6s, but doesn't load any pages. I doubt my ping is that high, but i can check when i get home.I have 600 max global, his is at 250 now, and 100 upload. 150% upload ratio setting. We have DIFFERENT ports assigned for our clients (i'm around 65000, he is around 24000). I don't know what else information I can give off the top of my head, but let me know if you need to know anything else. Thank you so much!
