Slow download, extremely high upload on school's wireless network


Recommended Posts

My university will not allow us to upload anything via wired connection (they shut off our port immediately if we upload, whether through torrents, iTunes, etc.). However, if we use the wireless connection, we can get around this problem because they can't shut off the wireless ports. The problem I'm having is that I regularly get download speeds anywhere from 5kb/s - just under 100 kb/s (rarely). My upload speeds regularly are between 500 kb/s - 1mb/s. If I decrease my upload speed at all, it decreases my download speed severely. I have outgoing encryption enabled.

I know our network is T2 and has the capacity to download at very fast speeds, I just don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
