Just testing out utorrent now. Rather intrestingly its running now and im still connected to ventrilo and msn! Web pages are hit and miss though some times they load fine some times they load but very slowly and other times they dont load at all. The port is forwarded properly I'm currentlydownloading two files one is downloading at 0.1kb and doesnt seem to be moving. The other is at 23.3k and rising! But of course this could just be the torrent. Ive only been useing it for 30mins but it seem alot better really intrested to find out what the problem is now though?
edit taking a few trys to get this reply posted. Ive also noticed that msn and ventrilo disconnect now and again but they always reconnect and my connect to world of warfraft seems to be kinda laggy but my ping is stables at 200

Just had Sky ring me, they are going to send me a new router they believe that is the fault as i told them it was warm to touch it doesnt look like they read any of the comments on the ticket or the emails i sent about others having the same problems. I suppose this is the downside of officially having to use there equipment as i couldnt/didnt tell them it was not the router as i had tried 3 differant ones. Maybe Easynet will sort the problem themselves in the meantime, as i know i will be ringing back in 3-5 days

I have a problem with uTorrent and have done since the subscribing about three weeks ago.
My speeds in uTorrent are shocking and I have set up port forwarding etc. Top speeds are about 12 KB/s if I'm lucky, its normally down about 1-2 KB/s per torrent or torrents just dont download at all.
I also cant access any web pages, xfire disconnects and msn messenger disconnects when I start utorrent up.
Gaming performance is good, great pings and no problems there.
FTP downloading is pretty poor, maxing out about 20 KB/s...
Also having the problem of no access to https sites...

I have a problem with uTorrent and had it on and off since I signed up, the speeds tend to stay <30KB/s download but quite often under 10. I can do the port forwarding test and it comes up green, and no offence I've been using the program for a long time and know how to use it.
Xfire/WLM (MSN)/IRC used to disconnect but when i limited connections to about 50 (really bad) it seems to have fixed the problem. I've tried with upnp on and off, when its off it causes a few extra problems with certain apps but that's probably because most them use randomly generated ports so I cant forward them.
FTP sometimes decides not to connect at all and the same goes for https sites. With both IE6, IE7 and FF.
If I didn't know any better I would say they run some faulty filtering/forwarding/shaping service which puts port 80 access first and assumes everything else is not worth dealing with.
Connection Speed 4384 kbps
Line Attenuation 48.0 db
Noise Margin 5.7 db
Note: The router seems to like noise margins in the range of 5-7 never any higher, if I dc during peak times I will connect at 3200 or such, if I connect at say 5 in the morning, i will get 4800.. ofc if i leave it connected after restarting it at peak times, I can reach mayby 19 db. Im also on a Interleaved connection.
