    more than likely bitorrent is overloading the router with connections. and thus killing your bandwidth. try lowering the amoung of connection BT uses.

    I don't run bit torrent and in fact have only been using my router for normal http requests and FTP transfers.

    I have exactly the same problem. If you clear the firewall log, it runs perfectly straight away.

    I don't know if turning the firewall off will stop the problem but to be honest we shouldn't have to do that. :thumbdown:
