Are you on about bit torrent downloads?

What torrent client are you using?

Have you configured it correctly?

Have you made sure you are NOT using port 8081?

If using a router have you forwarded your port correctly?

Who is you ISP?

Have you checked you connection with

Although not necessary it would help to know which site ( I understand if you don't want to mention it).

More info may get you an answer. (I could help as I've been using a bit torrent client for over 8 years!)

My computer is very slow uploading how do i fix this problem please

You may need to provide more details on this. But...
1). Do you mean that your computer is slow BOOTING up?
It may be that you need to Upgrade your RAM (memory) because as you add more programs applications to your computer over time, many of them load up some apps into memory on computer start-up. One way out is to type msconfig.exe (Start > Run > msconfig.exe), go to 'Start up' and uncheck the programs you can do without on start-up. But best way is to increase Memory.
2). Do you mean UPLOADING files to the internet?
This will depend on the speed of your Internet Link, and / or the speed of the server on the internet you are uploading to. Try uploading to some other destination and compare. If it is slow generally, then you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider and ask for Uplink bandwidth increase.
Hope this helped.

Why does my internet slow down when I hook up my router. When I first purchased it it did'nt really make a differance. Do I need to reset it or something?

You could try re-setting. Remove the power plug and let it sit for around 30 secs. Re-insert the plug and wait till all lights on the router are on and steady. If this makes no difference, goto "network connections" right click on the connection you are using and select "repair". This will re-set the ip of the connection. If this fails you may need to 'dial into' your router to make adjustments to its settings.

Extremely slow internet downloading speed.

Download this small application.

and check your Upload and download speed.

it should not be your modem or your system problem.But a system whihc is infected by Adware, malware or spyware are usually slow during browsing.Scan you rPC with a Good anti-Virus with lastest updates installed.

Contacting your Internet Service Provider may most hopefully solve your problem.

Internet extremely slow on one network, fine on the other

Not knowing if this relates directly as i am not from Australia but have you checked with the ISP.

The phone line providing the internet access may be damaged in some way or require calibration to reduce line noise (which can cause slow speeds).

Alternatively, have you got a usage limit that you may have reached. ISPs have the ability to throttle back your connection speed.
