    Our student house is on Virgin Media and our connection gets capped during peak hours... so I was wondering if there was a way to block torrents for everyone during peak hours.

    I tried setting it up under access restrictions with the following:

    But it does not seem to make a difference. I even rebooted the router and modem to make extra sure... but torrents still continue as usual.

    L7 doesn't work anymore for torrent, because you can encrypt the stream.

    search this website for your answers...

    for a quick one add keyword blocking for "torrent" and "announce"

    limit the number of connections
