Internet connection + torrent

Postby BenTheCarotte » Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:15 pm

I have quite a good stable internet connection who rarely ever fails

However, whenever I download torrents, I lose my internet connection in like 5-20 minutes.

When I get disconnected, it (almost always) still works fine on my roomates' desktop(with no wifi, so he's plugged right in the router), but not on either of our laptop running on the wifi.

What could cause that?

Does it fail when you directly connect to the router?

If this is a laptop I would try connecting to a different Wifi network and test this.

Are you *SURE* you're connected to the right wireless router?

I'm going to assume that since we never heard from our friend Ben again, he was not connected to the right wireless router, or some other equally ridiculous solution.
