Hey guys, I've been having a weird problem that I can't really figure out. I have Comcast Internet (the fastest speed avail able which is 8MBps) and have started seeing some weird behavior. My internet is still really fast BUT when I try to download any torrents, the torrents download SUPER slow (internet remains the same). I'm talking about 35KB/s max. If I take the same torrent to my friends place who also has comcast, the torrent will speed up to 150-240KB/s.

I never really had a problem until a couple of days ago. I also know it's not my seeders b/c I missed last nights Heroes and am trying to download that. I currently use Vuze and know that they took Comcast to court. Any ideas??

They are probably throttling back your torrent downloads if you are a heavy downloader.

This.

When I had Comcast, they actually sent me a cease and desist letter about it.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Sorry for posting in the wrong section. Do you know if this would effect Rapidshare files? I figure if they going to throttle me might as well do that
