torrents slow entire network
my network consists of less then 10 devices mostly wired.
whenever anyone cpu client is using utorrent (downstram ) the entire network becomes very slow. ( streaming 480p goes to poop )
no matter what speed i limit the utorrent client, same pb. so its not a bandwidth pb. i download only a couple torrent at a time.
i have limited connections to 100, didnt work either.
I am thinking about simultaneous connections might be the pb, but my netgear router can handle 200+ connections according to router chart, im not sure if each peer in the torrent client counts as 1 connection.
my other guess is the cpu of router gets overloeaded, it is 250mhz if im not mistaken with good amount of ram.
any help appreciated.
