@snakeyez78 There is a known issue with Linksys and Dlink routers and torrent speeds.. The processors are not able to handle the traffic so the router pretty much freezes.. If you have a WRT54 series router you can put a 3rd party firmware on it and the problems are, for the most part, fixed.
As far as Insight goes.. I have not had any problems with them so far.. I would call and have a tech come out to check signal levels just for kicks..
bit torrents have nothing to do with the issue. one of the people i know having this problem wouldn't even know what a torrent is, but thanks for the reply.
IMHO: it started with the move away from att, and the service has sucked since. hopefully the lufcg will open lexington up to other cable companies, and light a fire under insight's lethargic ass.

I think was having the same problem ... If I was to start a torrent download after about 3 minutes my connection would stop, and to fix this I would have to power cycle my modem, and unless I throttled the download to almost nothing or i stopped it the connection would shut down again...
I haven't had this problem in a week or two but a few changes that I made that might of helped are :
I started using Azureus (and set up the encryption) was using utorrent and bittorrent before
I started using peerguardian
I ran the WinXP Patch (found here: http://lvllord.de/?l...n&url=downloads ) - Windows XP limits the number of connections. This patch will change the limit, so you can connect to more peers at a time.
