      please check attached zip file with a screen dump of how it looks like after 5 minutes. It used to be very fast and now nothing. They must have my connection capped not allowing p2p downloads, right?

      Okay,
      1st when I got the sky router last Thursday I managed to connect immediately. I looked at the sync speed up and down and I was amazed that these were the same as before with f2s. I thought sky would sync at slower speeds since it’s cheaper etc. and almost everyone is picking on it…

      From Thursday to Sunday morning download speed was fine but then everything went wrong.

      I use the internet most to do p2p downloads I even use joost to watch telly on p2p.

      From Sunday afternoon all my p2p programs stopped working. Very, very slow connection when not complete zero kBps.

      Very soon I rang Sky support but… don’t bother at all. They talk to you as you were a handicapped or retarded in IT terms of course. Even when I told them that I have been using the internet and p2p since these have seen daylight.
      After long conversations I was told that in 4 to 5 days I would be called by a higher degree technician… In one word Sky support is USELESS.

      Until I came across this forum and started making questions. Not aware that I was on something called CONNECT not many could help me initially but when I posted it “TheWhizzz” helped me by leading me to a thread on this forum where someone found a site where one can learn a lot about how to get the right settings on your torrent client.
      As soon as I read and changed some things in my utorrent everything came to life. Utorrent was back to it full potential, downloading up to 400 kBps. This is as fast as I could get on f2s.

      Hope this can help others on the same network and on package CONNECT or on other ISPs with the same policy on p2p downloads.
      Thanks to all involved.
