      Page Cannot be displayed after using P2P & Torrents

      I've search the web and this site a few times to try and find advice on the problem I'm currntly having with sky broadband connect. I haven't been able to find anything similar, and hope this is not a duplicate.

      Most of the time when I use P2P software (TV Ants, sopcast, bittorrent - client utorrent), I get problems browsing.

      I'll be part of the way through a download on utorrent or or watching something on sopcast and HTTP traffic stops working. I open internet explorer and all I can get is "page can not be displayed". The P2P program cotinues to function as normal but HTTP traffic appears to be blocked. I can't even log in to the router or ping anything on the internet.

      Each time this happens I need to power my router of an on to resolve.

      Can anyone help, are sky doing this.

      maybe p2p software downloading so fast, no access to http, you could limit your download speed on utorrent like 50/100kbps, or have you got it set on unlimited?

      It maybe better limiting the upload speed, as it will be choking your connection.

      Also with the V1 router, you could try turning off the UPnP as this could kill your connection as well.

      I do have limits set on torrents, and this happens proble remains after I have closed the P2P program.

      I'll try turning off uPNP and post outcome.

      is it p2p, or any heavy downloading?

      Only really notice it with P2P (Live streaming and bit torrent).

      One other thing to add is It affects all devices connected to my router I have one wired and 2 wireless, these are not on all the time though.

      I have had the problem happened from my wired PC and wireless PC, and when the problem occurs it affects both. e.g I could have downloaded somethign on the wired pc, the HTTP traffic then stops working on that one and also any other device on my network.

      Re: Page Cannot be dispalyed after using P2P & Torrents

      The limits you have set are they on uploads? This sounds like a classic case of choking your connection until it just falls over.

      I had this issue early on with the router whilst playing with utorrent settings to try and speed downloads up. The router is screwed by large numbers of connection (incoming or outgoing). Try reducing max number of incoming connections especially.

      The limits I have set are both on uploads and downloads, I'm reduce the number of connections utorrent has from 60 to 40 to see if this improves anything
