    Bandwidth and wifi signal problems


    I just like to ask if there's a way to track or monitor how bandwidth is distributed among difference pc's. We used to have a 384kbps connection but we recently upgraded to 768kbps dsl connection. We're using linksys router. One PC is wired and the rest are all connecting to the router wirelessly.

    Here are the problems we encounter:
    - whenever one computer is downloading something (uTorrent), the rest of the pc's can't seem to use the internet anymore. Even simple browsing is not possible. I saw in one of the threads that the settting in uTorrent should be adjusted but I don't know what values to plug in.

    - also, is there any way to boost the signal of the wifi? because whenever our laptops are a floor away from the router, the signal fluctuates. Also, there are times when there's no signal but we can still use the internet.

    I'll post here some of these info in case these could be of help:
    -------------------------------------- Speed Test Results
    132 kbps down (~0.13 Mbps, 16 KB/s)↓
    47 kbps up (~0.05 Mbps, 6 KB/s)↑

    torrent and peer to peer programs will do that to a typical home grade router..they put too much demand on the routers slower processor and little amount of RAM with all those concurrent connections..and bog down the router. Higher end newer generation home grade routers that have faster CPUs and more RAM can handle this type of traffic better, and business grade routers.

    Set the total upload speed in your torrent prgogram to only 50% of what your ISP gives you.

    Do not run more than 4 torrents (total of down and up) at the same time and limit their number of connections each to be not more than 12, i.e. 4x12 = 48 connections in all.
