With a 2Mb connection your max download speed would be about 250kB/s.
Usually when the same thing happens to me resetting the router works. Then I can download & browse the internet at the same time for a while. Probably have to reboot my router about once or twice a month. But if I understood correctly rebooting the router didn't solve your problem.
I recommend that you try lowering the amount of connection your torrent client creates. Right now I have utorrent set to 170 connection max, it's quite a low amount but works fine for me. I'd recommend you try setting it to for example 200 and seeing if this helps.
one more thing.
Exactly my thoughts. He wants to download at 1800Kbps and he has his upload set at 5Kb.
Give me a break if everyone did that it would take 360 people just for you to download at 1800Kbps.
I have a less than stellar speed but I upload about 40% of my bandwith. Honestly I'm glad you can't get a good download speed.
Why should you get a ultra fast download when you are not helping anyone else get a faster download?
Quite being greedy. I'll assume your upload is at least 256Kbps so at least set it to use 75-100Kbps.
