Hi, I just moved to a new house and i'm using wireless internet. Whenever i run uTorrent, my browser is so slow it won't even work. Very recently, i've noticed that my direct download speeds are non-existent as well. I tried to download a roughly 200mb file and the file took hours to complete as opposed to a couple of minutes. What can i do? Thank you.

It's possible that your ISP throttles torrents. What is your ISP?

Sounds to me like a couple things, more likely related to your router than your internet connection or your computer.

First of all, of course make sure the appropriate utorrent ports are forwarded to your computer. This is necessary for utorrent to reach full up/down speeds.

Second, set the ip filter maximum ports setting on the router to it's max, should be around 4096. This part is necessary so you can browse and do other online functions while utorrent is open.
