I got the "upgrade" a few days ago and not much in the change in speed but now it appears that Bittorrents etc do not seem to be working as well as they used too.
Infact unless you make changes to your protocol encryption then you wont get any torrent action at all.
What is going on at the Virgin end and will things return to the way they were or are P2P networks and Bit Torrent etc. now ceasing on Virgin ADSL?

Yeah I have it working but its probably time to switch as I can stand the hassle. As no one from Virgin has come and said "no we havent blocked it" it can only mean its all over on Virgin Broadband for P2P and Bittorrent etc.

I have been having the same problem, called 150 today and he said he had sent a refresh to my adsl modem.
All seems to be working fine now, he is due to call back after 1 hour to see if p2p traffic has caused my connection to drop off.
Seems strange that it works fine until utorrent is opened!!!!!!
Also seems strange that the link on the national customers "fair use policy" does not work at the moment...

Thanks for the reply, i will give them a call tommorow. I suspect they are banning torrenting, legal or otherwise, after all they offer TV services etc. I will give them a call and see what they say or get my MAC number and change.
Why does no one from VM comment on this?

I had the bt exchange upgrade done a week ago, since then Virgin are constanly blocking my incoming port for p2p software. My upnp setting on the router is opening the port fine. Using a web based port scanner the port is open until I open utorrent. It lasts for about 20sec then Virgin block the port. I have even set my incoming port to a commonly used port thats normally open for standard web use. They also block these. Why is there information explaining how to use utorrent scheduler if its not possible to be connectable?
Please can I have some more info on what exactly has changed with Virgin National adsl broadband terms & condions????
This is where the traffic managment policy should be but does not exist
