So I've switched from shaw to telus for about 2 weeks and the internet's been bothering me quite alot. Usually before 6pm the internet would work fine. But today I tried to download some torrents and watch vids online and its just way too slow. DL speed might go up to 600 kb/s for a couple secs and drop straight down, but right now, its not even passing 100kb/s. I can't do any kind of competitive gaming due to huge ping spikes that happen every 5 seconds, but some of the other computers in the house seem to be doing fine though. I don't know how to fix this but would love to have it done. Thanks.

Please download MiniToolBox and run it on the troublesome PC. Also run speedtest.net and post results from the trouble computer and one that seems to be operating "normally"

Try setting up QOS rules for your computer in the router? That way you can prioritize what computer gets what packets and etc..

Make sure you have the proper ports forward for your torrent clients and games (QOS as chrisd87 said would help set that up) on the router AND computer firewall. Call your ISP and complain you pay for your bandwidth they should verify the speed to the router/modem. Generally after the modem/router connection its up to you.

Also setting up UPnP will take care of all the pain of setting up ports and forwarding for you as long as your router supports it.

"The people" would be your ISP?
