Per a recommendation on why my uploading was killing my downloading I've installed NetLimiter. I keep tweaking the configuration and haven't found something I am completely happy with. I couldn't find what I was looking for in the documentation, and contacting their support hasn't gotten any response.
My question is if there is a solution to preventing the upload pipe saturation besides setting an upload limit at just below my theoretical upload limit provided by my ISP (Filtering ACK)? .
