comment Tor Browser and how it affects torrents
Apparently I can't edit my post, but now that I think about it if the traffic is all coming through your VPN, then they would be coming through one source and hence not flag that you are using torrents from multiple sources. So if the content is actually encrypted (and they're incapable of decrypting it), then a VPN could help mask at least how you're downloading from your ISP.

comment Tor Browser and how it affects torrents
I thought the packets were sent to the VPN unencrypted, where they are then encrypted and then sent to the site or whatever you're trying to access. Am I mistaken? Though I wasn't really considering them checking the content, what I thought was important was the way torrents work where you're getting small pieces from multiple sources that tends to get flagged by ISPs, would that not still be a problem?

Ran those two lines and everything is working perfectly! Definitely a workaround while I figure out why this is happening and how to stop it.

comment What does Advanced DNS do?
I figured. I have no problem with my ISP I suppose I was just wondering if the other services provided some sort of technology that enhances performance but I've noticed no difference since I've turned it off. Thanks for the help!
