Slow download speeds
Hi guys. I just changed my ISP and I got a problem with it. The ISP cannot find the problem, so I thought you guys can help me. Here's my problem:
My ISP claims to be a 7 mb/s connection. I tested the speed on the internet and it's a 5.2 mb/s. When I download something directly in my browser, I can download at about 500 kb/s. When I download a .torrent with uTorrent or Vuze (formely Azureus), my max speed is 30 kb/s !! All the ports are open, I did the tests too. My firewall rules are alright. I really don't know what could be the problem ! I didn't have any problems with my older ISP. As soon as I connect the computer to my older ISP, it downloads really good.
I need your help again, if you can !!
edit: My modem is a router at the same time. It's a 2wire model 2701HG-G.
