before i get started, here's my speed test Download Speed: 21028 kbps (2628.5 KB/sec transfer rate) Upload Speed: 4460 kbps (557.5 KB/sec transfer rate) so i noticed a few weeks ago that whenever utorrent is running, internet browsing seriously slows down to a crawl... i'm talking like sub-56k speeds whether i'm seeding at 5kb/s or 150kb/s. i thought it could be from the number of connections so i lowered them and it seems to have helped... it's just strange that this would all of a sudden become a problem. also youtube videos have been loading slowly (regardless of browser) whether or not i'm running torrents. a lot of times they'll load like a quarter of the video almost instantly, then either stop completely, or take 10 minutes to load. finally, the last symptom i've noticed is that i've been getting a shit ton of "your connection to the server has been reset" errors in firefox i'm pretty much stumped. this happens with wireless or wired connections, and it had always worked fine before. also, my shitty laptop loads youtube videos just fine.
