I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me with a certain problem I've got. Whenever I have an application which uses up a lot of traffic for a while (450kbits) for about half a minute or something, my internet has a tendency to sort of choke up, stops the application access, download, whatever as well as generally being unable to do anything afterwards until a restart.

For the record, I've got a P-660HW-T3 v2 zyxel router if it helps.

I've been able to somewhat solve the problem in firefox by using firefox throttle, but still...

It could be that it is most of your bandwidth (how much bandwidth do you have, 450kbits is not much to be using). It can also be that the program is sending out a huge number of packets and thus bottlenecking your system.

Well I've got an 8 meg internet. And I think, not fully sure, that this only started after I got the router. I'm totally not sure about that of course. And this happens with any prog that uses this ammount. Be it IE, FF, or something completely different.

A router just... routes. I do not THINK it should cause these problems; however, if its controller is slow enough, I guess it can. However, since this did start right afrer you got the router, try looking up information on your router from google. Look up things such as "slow internet with "

Others may be experiencing the same problem and there may be a hardware or firmware explanation for this.

great, right now, the only thing I found via googling was my post, over some paly.tm website which brings me in here. What the hell! play.tm That's kinda weird.

One thing to try is to upgrade the router's firmware if a newer version is available. This may just be a software glitch.

If that doesn't do anything, go back to using it without the router. If the problem stops then I'd say it looks like the router is at fault and needs replacing (preferably out of ZyXEL's pocket rather than your's).
