Default 4MB Internet connection

Hey,

Hello! This is my first post, Just wanted to introduce myself and get some help .

I just got connected to bulldogs 4MB Internet connection. I can connect fine, And here is a speed test-

http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/sp...b3d64afeb83d05

This is quite good, But when I download of torrent sites it isn't so good. I use Azeurus, with the sites Torrent box, And torrent reactor, And I only get speeds like 50kb to 100kb. Also I keep getting disconnected not that often, but every hour or so. Can anybody help?

Hehe Voodoo, see what I mean by you'd get bothered by the sig thing?

Anyways, if you connect to a torrent, your internet speed might be able to recieve data that fast, but if there connection is any slower, like a 56k for instance, yuor internet connection won't be able to grab it any quicker since yours has to wait for that one to send out the small amounts of data.
