Peer 2 Peer Problems
Hi, Is anyone else having problems with any peer to peer apps, the main one being BitTorrent. I have the router setup correclty port forwarding etc, when i have utorrent downloading the internet seems to come to a more or less complete hault, e.g pages wont load msn dissconnects.
The torrent will goto a good speed then just drop back down, i think it may have somthing to do with the router not being able to handle so many peers, so i limited that to 200 then 100 but no difference.
Downloading from the web and newsgroups is excellent reaching top speeds of the connect package.

What port are you using for your uTorrent client. The defaults of 6881 - 6889 are not ideal, since they are "known" ports for p2p. Try a high port above 49000.
Do a search on wiki for the ideal settings for your client - the Azureus settings will work just as well on uTorrent.

Same as my problem here http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=5630 and a problem people are seeing on UK Online, when your connection dies can you do a tracert to bbc.co.uk and see if it fails after the second hop but still resolves to the bbc web site at the end?

Thanks Amaboknaai, have already done what your saying, its either sky or the router had no previous problems with F2s.
Plusnet, its seems to be random, somtimes at hop 2,3,4 etc, this has stumped me as my http,ftp and newsgroup downloads are all better than they were with f2s. I've been doing some googling and i see some people having similar trouble with the DG834G and GT with other ISP's so it could be the router, but then other people are fine!
Anyone else having similar trouble with p2p?

Im having similar difficulties...using utorrent, set up correctly as per the port forward website, and other advise ive found on here. Get varying speeds on torrents, but never a total donload speed of more than about 30-40kBs, and my upload is usually peaks at about 22kBs. Quite often, speeds drop right down. Outside of utorrent, when its running, i often have virtually no internet acces, despite the relatively slow speeds of the p2p app. Used various ports, currently using 53268
?Faulty router?...how would I know?...everything works perfectly when p2p apps arent activated.
? are sky known to throttle p2p traffic? i wouldnt have thought so, having read their terms and conditions. Also, im not exactly a heavy user, given the speeds quoted, and im capped with the connect package anyway. Plus other people are reporting pretty good p2p connections.
Edit....my sincere apologies for posting this twice...true to form, it locked up while i was typing, no idea how it happened
