      Sky BB & BitTorrent

      When i first started my Sky I managed to download some stuff via bit torrent.

      However for the last few days every time i fire up on BT client it simply blocks out all internet usage, i can recover internet access by disconnecting from the router, closing down Utorrent and then re-connecting to the router.

      I 'think' it coincided with me installing Sky Player.

      Does anybody know of any issues relating to the above.

      Thanks.

      Use Run>msconfig to stop Kontiki running at startup and see if it makes any difference.

      Utorrent is really bad at hogging bandwidth. Make sure you set limits and not allow it 'unlimited' bandwidth.

      i avoid torrents altogether and stick with phazeddl.com and rapidshare web downloads using rapget modified for rapidshare.com and downloadable for free from their website...

      i always find the content i am looking for via phaze and attain constant speeds above my actual sync speed, i currently sync at 7168 but get a steady 850k/s through the rapidshare downloader...

      skyBB and rapidshare downloader are very good friends imho

      I use a program called CFosSpeed from cFos Software GmbH. It basically lets me uplaod at around 80K and still download and surf at full speed. It does however require a few hours/days to tune itself.

      Good, but 7168kbps is equal to 875Kbps.

      I don't think it is possible to download at a greater speed than you sync.
