EXTREMELY slow internet browsing when downloading just a fraction of bandwidth
Now, I'm not a newbie to torrents, but somethings going whack here, and I have no idea how to fix it. I use Azurez/U Torrent to manage my torrents, as it seemed to work better than a few others I used before. However, whenever I decide to dl a torrent, my internet browsing really slows down....even when the torrent is only downloading a fraction of my DSL bandwidth (I have 2MB DSL, and have confirmed this)...I know I'm not being throttled either...
The weird thing is, when I have Azurez open downloading torrents, let's say, 150KB/S, Frostwire (basically LimeWire Pro for free if you didn't know) works just as speedy as it would if I weren't downloading anything..it's just mainly slowing down internet explorer and I don't know why!
Also, my internet remains "frozen" you could say, until I reset my router (unplug for 10 sec)...shutting down Azurez doesn't help at all...
My computer is pretty top notch, so I know it's not that...
Intel Core 2 Duo 6420
Asus 650 SLI Mobo
320GB Seagate HDD
4GB Patriot 6400 Ram....etc, etc...
I have tried multiple settings in U Torrent
I have it set right now to dl at 85% of my bandwidth, about 1800KB and upload at 5KB.
