      or better still, drop it altogether and go with an early version of uTorrent

      And dont do what I did (with Utorrent), which was whilst trying to work out if torrents are traffic managed (on connect product) you go and set 10 times the number of allowed connections.

      The SKY router (as would most out their) freaks with lots of connections (i'm talking 1000+ connections here).
      All in all it's quite easy to screw your line with a torrent client, in particular with upload. Set your uload low enough to not really tickle your connection.
