Torrent is my only problem.
Msn working, secure sites working, but im having no luck with torrents.
Read several posts on here, followed advice, but still nothing
I currently use Azureus - i have set the port forwarding as i have read on here.
It all connects fine, the nat and dht both turn green BUT
most download speed i can get is around 4kb/sec but usually under 1
I have tried utorrent as also suggested on here, but encounter the same problem
Where do i go from here?

once torrent program has been running a few minutes, i cant access any websites until i close Azureus.........

same problems here and on reading this forum and others it seems its only people on the connect package that are having this problem ? No one seems to have any answers on this topic and it is so frustrating

im on the connect package and had exactly the same problem as you till tonight, had a torrent coming down at 300kB/s+ earlier on and was still able to browse the net for the first time in 10 days Long may it last.

Wondering if the problem still happens with newsgroups?

Im on connect, and seems to be ok using utorrent.
Ill tell you what i do, step by step, if you have already done that, then im sorry for repeating it.
1. Go to router page, ie 192.168.0.1, then on the left hand side, click on services, add custom service, call it utorrent, or whatever, and then add the start port as 13349 and the finish port as 13349 (leave the type as TCP)
2. Once that is applied, go to firewall rules, click add for outbound services, and in the top drop down box, have your utorrent, or whatever you named it, set the action box to allow always, leave everything else as it is, and click Apply.
3. Next go to inbound services, and "add", again, have service as utorrent or whatever you called it, action - allow always, and then send to LAN server add 192.168.0.2 (to get the ip adress of the PC you are using, go start>run> type cmd, this will bring up a DOS prompt, type ipconfig and enter, this will display among other things, your ip adress), again leave all other boxes as they are, and apply this.
On the firewall rules screen, you should end up with this.......
And logout of router, and then start up utorrnet and hopefully all will be ok, it worked for me anyway
