I'm currently running a D-Link DIR-625 and have the port forwarding set up, but whenever I run uTorrent my connection immediately starts to deteriorate, slowly resulting in a complete loss of connection. My connection runs fine when I'm not using it, so I know it's only related to uTorrent.

Please help!

I've had the exact same problem with 2 different D-Link routers. To be frank, they're horrid routers for file sharing/p2p traffic.

supertaboo: so I know it's only related to uTorrent.

well not exactly.. p2p programmes make hundreds of tcp connections when you are downloading/u0ploading files.. because you will be using nat on the router each connection needs a nat translation made (actually a port address translation thats unique). what will be happening is your router has to make more translations than it can handle it slows the processing right down until it dies a slow death. a router with more ram works better. some fine tuning of your torrent client could help too.

but basically.. you need a better router :+(
