lakecityransom Posted September 10, 2010 Report Share Posted September 10, 2010 I've had the same settings on uTorrent for about 9 months. Verizon DSL sold to Frontier Communications and I figured they just destroyed my Internet, because I couldn't run uTorrent as it resulted in slow peer connections on uTorrent and 15 sec page load periods when Internet browsing.It seems its more complicated and I want to understand why a virtual machine is running IE6 full steam ahead with instant page loading, while I test Firefox and IE6 outside of it and they are still stuck trying to load the pages? I've done everything from resetting equipment, custom DNS servers, bridge modem to router (as recommended by Verzion DSL), reinstalling the nForce network driver for the mobo, and also coincidentally a windows file repair for integrity a week ago because of early stages of chkdsk failure... It just boils down to this: uTorrent running = Internet browsing dies, yet virtual box runs browsers just fine with it on. The only rationale I can begin to understand behind this is that the virtual machine software has its own virtual network driver in device manager and connection in network properties, but it still relies on the main Internet connection in network properties being active to work.If there is any curiosity, the virtual machine is Virtual Box.Here's a dual screen image to illustrate my point: http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/1280/loadtest.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
