Windows 7: windows 7 sp1 weird network behavior

windows 7 sp1 weird network behavior

Hi there

I have something weird going on with my network, I can surf and download whatever form servers like Rapid, Mega and all those, but I was trying to download Fedora 14 using the a torrent file, and at the beginning it started to download at the max bandwidth I got but a few seconds later it gets like clog up, cuz the download gets down to just 30 Kbps, have to mention that I have a connection of 15 Mbps, but that's not all cuz when I pause the download and close the program, I try to surf the net and everything is slow and even try downloading something form servers, like a video and is downloading at 8-10 Kbps

I check the Task manager and see that my network is at 14 % with a max of 100 Mbps, but I am not downloading nothing even the browser is close and everything else is close, I even check my firewall that has monitoring activity and nothing is using the net

have to say that the same happens every time that I try to use the torrent files, and I have to restart the computer for the "behavior" to go away

even tried with different torrent program version, installing it and reinstalling it


do you guys have an idea?

I stay away form any of the bit torrent sites, you never know what you might catch......ie cold, flu, virus's. First thing I would do is to make sure your system is free from all that. Then reset your modem and router and then check your systems download/upload speeds, from speedtest.net.

hi, thanks for the reply


actually I've never had problems using bit torrent programs, and that's because I only download stuff like Fedora, Ubuntu, well things like that

besides that I've like 10 years without virus problems cos I use the best antivirus soft there's in the market, besides that I use a router Linux based which I keep in shape updating Iptables

but of course this does not mean that I am immune to viruses, and that it can happen anytime, and that's why I never left "viruses" out of the question

so, anyway, actually I never had this behavior before, and have to mention that Iam using the same program version to download the stuff, the same that I didn't have problems with

But I stop using it for a while, coz I like I said I only download stuff when I need it, time for when I install winodos 7 "SP1"

so, maybe it could be related to the SP1, don't know yet, have to find a solution to this
