I think you failed at life . j/k. It's probably because you opened too many connections. Set the limit lower.

Do you upload too?

No upload = No top speeds.

From what I've seen, I don't think peers distinguish between those that upload and those that don't.

My system used to reboot when I was downloading from BT at high speeds. Problem went away after a fresh install of windows.

I just downloaded Azerus and it's running at 110kB/s with no problem. Wonder if it was just a BitTornado issue.

limit the amount of connections it can make. it's probably trying to make more connections than your router can handle.

No you are correct. In my experience, if you limit your upload too much your downloads will be slower.
