I am on a home wireless network with three other users. One of them downloads torrents 24x7.
Whenever the other person is doing his thing with torrents, my laptop's Internet speed drops to a crawl. My laptop is a Toshiba L675 with 8GB RAM and a 500 meg HD. I don't think I have a hardware issue, so my question is:
Can constant sustained usage of torrents be interruptive to others sharing a common router?
