Im at my friends apartment complex so i wanted to download something just to see how fast it would go. Turns out the internet was slow and ever since that day I ve had to Reset my router back to factory settings just to get on my xboxlive. The maintenance guy said that a torrent will 'screw up everybody's connection" even days afterwards. So im wondering what does utorrent do to the apartment complex that it doesnt do to my house? Just to explain more about how things work here.. one day a tenet got the Ethernet cables for router mixed up and that "slowed down everybody"-the maintenance guy.

The office manager told me the "cable people' told her how this complex is supposed to get "50". ("I can only assume its 50 bigM little b.) I speed test at 10Mb. Leading me to believe substandard equipment IS being used. as of right now when My belkin f5d7234-4 v5 (g) router is hooked up i cant use netflix on xbox, i could yesterday. When i am directly connected my netflix is in HD and working perfectly. Do you know anything about that?

You're probably double-NATed. You need a switch, or you need to configure the router to turn off the router part ("bridge" mode).

Usually it's just a matter of disabling DHCP on the router, then plugging the wall into the LAN port on the router instead of the WAN/uplink
