Before I start, p2p and torrenting is not illegal. I use it to download public files, Pure Pwnage episodes, and release my own stuff. Please don't yell at me for like "omg no illegal discussion". Though if I remember g2g as I do a bit ago, you guys are understanding. I hope..

Azureus recently has crippled my torrenting ability. I have 5 mb down and 2 up internet. I usually ran Azureus whenever my PC and capped the upload at 20 kB/s and download I didn't, as it never slowed my down. Now, even if I keep the upload capped at .01 kB/s, I cannot connect to the internet through web browsers and xfire and msn lag out. It's horrible. And it's just not my computer, when I was running it last night, my mom woke me up in the morning because she couldn't get on the internet through her browser. What's really frustrating is it doesn't disconnect me from the internet, I can still download and upload, I just can't view webpages and communicate with friends.

What is up? Should I try another torrent client and see? Any other issue it might be? If it's the client, recommend me a new one besides uTorrent. I have an Actiontec MI-424-WR.

Hello Comrade General,

Regardless of what you use your P2P and torrent programs for we here at GeeksToGo will not assist with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs besides there removal. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

This thread has been reported to the Moderating Staff and should be closed shortly. Do not respond to this thread until given further notice.

In addition to that you may not use it for illegal means but someone viewing this thread may and land up in our malware thread asking for help with a spyware/malware/virii issue because of it.

Its getting hard to judge torrents under the p2p banner considering several mainstream internet browsers have or are getting torrent support, its going to be a case by case discussion and since torrents are firmly main stream and legal now i think we should be able to help the legal use of torrents, they are now significant enough that its difficult to justify the normal response.

Is this the latest version of azureus, this used to happen to me with azureus i would download a linux iso and it would start knocking out my connection speed it would be very slow, what i usually did was upgrade java and azureus the fresh install usually fixed it and it stopped happening after a while with one of the versions fixing the problem, the router can also cause this i would set it DMZ for a while make sure you arent triggering its security.
