Internet Speed decreased by router
I don't know that much about computers, but I know enough how to set up my router. I have 2 computers and an xbox internet connection hooked up to the router which uses a cable modem to access the internet. Lately the connection speed has been very slow. It was pretty fast for a while on Bit Torrent at like 70kbs, but now it won't get above 10kbs. The general internet is also slower. Is there anything I can do to make it go faster? Thanx for any help.

Do you also use Direct Connect for file sharing? And does BT have an option to throttle uploads if they slow downloads? Don't use BT but on DC++ ther is that option which I used to use. Sounds like I had the same problem as your having now. I solved by turning that option off.
