    Right, a couple of days ago, I forwarded ports on my router to allow me to get better speeds on Azureus. I gave all the computers (3) on my network static I.P. addresses, and everything was going smoothly. I was getting much better speeds, about 300kB/s more... But just yesterday, funny things started happening to my web browsing. Fox wouldn't be able to view webpages (I tried other browsers as well) and MSN wasn't signing in; however Azureus was still chomping away quite happily. So, I reset the modem and things tended to work. It happened again just now (Azureus was on), so I restarted and didn't open up Azureus, and the net works fine. I guess it's fairly obvious that the forwarding of ports has done something, however I wanted to see what some of you thought, I could be wrong, there could be a simple solution to this. Anyway, what do you think about this? Cheers.

    It could be a router problem. With the large amounts of data that plods through it due to Azureus it could be running into problems.

    Try resetting the router next time instead of the modem and see what happens. What model and make is it?

    You'll need to limit Azureuses upload speed to about 12k if you havent already; if you have a cheap router bit torrent will kill it because of the number of concurrent connections.

    Enough said. Halve or quarter the number of connections that Azureus makes and see if that makes a difference.

    I had troubles with that router handling large numbers of connections and so bought a new netgear one which seems to have solved the problems.

    Right, yeah, I think I'll have to buy a better router. Could anyone give me any recommendations? I hear Linksys are pretty good... Anyway, temporary solution was to just limit my upload speed on Azureus - fox and azureus seem to be happy working with each other now, but it's not an ideal solution at all. Cheers guys.
