Nothing connects when downloading torrents

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just moved into a new house with new internet. Whenever I try and download a torrent however, it starts downloading and it's fine, but nothing else will connect. Can't even load a simple web page. While I'm downloading torrents I can however load a web page on a separate device. This happens both with a wireless and direct ethernet connection to the modem. I have no idea what the problem could be.

Could be any number of things.
Off the top of my head I'm wondering if (perfectly legal) torrents are saturating your machine's NIC.
Have you tried running a LAN speed test while this problem is occurring?

Well I said I tried it with both ethernet directly and a wireless USB, which would be separate NIC's (I think). Another thing is I can connect to the router while this is happening, just not anything on the actual internet.
