BT rules but I think its been crashing my comptuer. Other than that, it kicks ass. Some guys were talking about passing Metro around through it.

The crash problems that BitTorrent has with many people actually lies in the network card drivers. Many chipsets for some reason are incompatible with BitTorrent at the driver level, this is especially common among Linksys cards.

There IS a workaround for *most* of the affected cards. You can see it here:

I have been having computer reboots similar to the ones caused by Bittorrent for a while now, different things seem to trigger it. I had already suspected my Linksys network card and updated its drivers but that didn't do anything. I guess it was the Linksys afterall! Now if only I didn't have a version 4 card. The fix is for version 5 or higher they say. I could always swap cards with my other PC though. It never does high speed anything. :think:
