runLoganrun Posted July 23, 2009 Report Share Posted July 23, 2009 when i am running utorrent, no matter what speed, internet slows down a lot, and for my roommate even more so. i'm directly connected to router, but roommate also has hard line to it. router is linksys wrt54gl.when i am running utorrent, WoW becomes unplayable for my roommate, even if i throttle down the d/l speed considerably. if i turn utorrent on, for just a few minutes, he has no gameplay, or limited, for like 1/2 hour.Is there a way to tweak anything to make this better? i was wondering if the router could allocate bandwidth more specifically, or what settings in utorrent would have an effect. I thought that just lowering the d/l speed, and u/l speed would help, as it has in the past with just me, and internet use, but it doesn't seem to matter. we have an 8/2 connection (cable internet has lame u/l speeds), and i lowered the d/l speed to something really low, like 200kbps, and set the u/l speed to 125, but it behaves just the same as if it were running full tilt, like right now i'm at 1.01mBps d/l speed. it seems like their should be enough bandwidth to go around, if i lowered that.thanks for any help,rlr Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
