When i have just Safari and or mail open all is fine, but when i use Aquisition or Bit Torrent I get good connection for a while then it all goes belly up, downoad speeds go down to 0.1, if i have Safari open it says I am not connected to the internet, console.log has various messages -

"Nov 5 10:32:53 mDNSResponder: NOTE: Wide-Area Service Discovery disabled to avoid crashing defective DNS relay 194.168.8.100."

">>> Warning: UDP sendto failed: (65, 'No route to host')

Frankly, no it doesn't, but my guess is that your router is getting swamped by all the P2P traffic and falling over. I've found that some routers are worse than others for this.

I'd bet that if you shut down the P2P software, your network will be back to normal after a couple of minutes, once all the traffic has died down.

I don't think you should worry about IP spoofing.

Oh, just thought, if it's the router then any other computers on your network will also grind to a halt; if not, then it's not the router.
