So anytime I open bit comet, my internet connection goes to crap. Web pages load slow or won't load, streaming video wont work etc. Fyi, this happens the second I open bit comet, not after downloads start and consume bandwidth. It lasts for maybe a minute after I shut down bit comet.
So is this traffic shaping from the isp or a network problem. If its a network problem, would qos fix it (I have a new router with qos that I haven't had time to install yet). If its the isp, is there any way to hide bit torrent usage from them?
I only run torrents occationally so I can live with it. I'm just curious.
