Just wondering if any of the ISPs throttle BT downloads.

I haven't been getting good BT download speeds these 1 or 2 weeks. Is it just me or have others been experiencing the same?

Starhub MOL user?
I still manage to get decent speeds for torrents with at least 200 seeders + leechers

Yups... BitTorrent :)

Using Singnet ADSL. Sorry, should have mentioned that in my earlier post. Oh well... just have to try again & leave the comp on overnight to get me stuff.

I guess you're not alone. My friends on Singnet has mentioned the same problems. Not fast but still manageable speeds

Alamak!! I may have found out the prob!

I just changed a new wireless card, so my wireless router thought it was a new computer & put it behind the DMZ & gave it an internal IP (192.xxx.xxx.xxx) & use NAT instead of a public IP. Most, if not all P2P software will give you lower priority if you use NAT or behind a firewall.

After reconfiguring router, d/l speed seems to pick up. Pai-seh.

Yup.... I did the quick & dirty way -- put computer out in the DMZ & up my firewall & other filters.
