    Been having an issue for over a week now.

    I have by 2 machines with bittorrent on them limited to 16 and 8k/sec
    respectivly (download) and 6 and 4 upload.

    What I have being finding is the net is totally unresponsive while downloading
    at not even the maximum speed of the pathetic 256/128k that I have.

    Stopping the torrents has the pings come down to 70-80ish (but thats another
    issue... thanks telecom for introducing serialization delays with your low adsl
    sync speed) - but even just one machine downloading at 8k/sec makes the pings go
    up to 1000-2000 type levels.

    This means its as good as useless. I actually borrowd a dialup connection, and
    its faster to load http: then the remaining 24kB/sec that my 256kb/sec
    connection has left.

    3 weeks ago, it was fine while using most of the connection for torrents.
