That may be normal for you. My upload speed is about 1/8th what my download speed is capable of.

no it is usually around 4. so it has dropped quite a bit.

someone on another forum has been having the same issue. it seems to improve late evening so i will try tonight.

I use UTorrent, and tend to leave the PC running pretty much all the time. Tend to hit 600 as a max fopr downloading, with 40 - 50 as a max for yploading.
