    I recently moved. At my old place I used Azureus frequently, having it open and surfing the web was very possible. However, at my new place with my new ISP things are different. With Azureus open, web pages only load half the time, and the loading times are comparable to dial up.

    I emailed my ISP about it and got this response;
    This is the only ISP in the area, and I feel I'm getting ripped off most of the time, so my question is are they giving me a straight response? If Azureus says I'm connected to 30 people, does that really mean 30 people or could I be truly connected to 1000+?

    Thanks, I just want to know if I'm being screwed.

    Azureus used to bring my network to a halt. I found that if I limited uploads, I could continue to do other internet related activities.

    Azureus --> Prferences --> Transfer
    Then set max upload to 5 kb/s. Any lower and your downloads will automatically be limited too.

    Hope this solves your problem or at least helps somewhat.

    It's worth experimenting with the settings as described in the Good Settings page of the Azureus FAQ. I was having similar problems, but followed the advice there & all is now running smoothly.
