Good afternoon, Hardware Heaven Members, This is my first post to the forums, although I have been coming to Hardware Heaven for news and advice for years. Anyway, I have an issue with my router whereby anytime someone is running a bit torrent (my roommate uses UTorrent), our ping will increase from a normal value of about 33ms to 1000ms and beyond; this renders the connection pretty much useless. As of right now, the only solution to the problem is to disconnect my roommate's system from the network altogether. However, I have been searching for another workaround. This morning, I even tried to reconfigure the router so that it will block HTTP and FTP access for my roommate's system between the hours of 10:00 AM and 12:00AM, seeing as that is when most people in my house use the high-speed connection. The settings on the router are all correct, but I still cannot leave my roommate's system plugged in without it having a negative impact on our connection. Has anyone else discovered a workaround to this most-annoying problem? I am quickly starting to despise UTorrent and all other bit torrent services.
