I have a Linksys router and I am getting super ****ty everything. My rates are crap, I can't connect to people in games, and I'm getting a top speed of 1 KB/s in Bit torrent. I have Road Runner and the modem goes to a hub then to a router. Someone said something about port forwarding and I was wondering if any of you could help.

Ok, so, by whatever means, you need to clean your machine of **** first. The free **** doesn't work. Buy a good spyware tool like pestscan or spysweeper or whatever. That may have a lot to do with your bandwidth issues. Do you have a software firewall? You might want to try one out to see if anything is sending out beaucoup connections. That can suck the **** dry out of your bandwidth.

I'm also having other problems as well though. I can't connect to people while playing AOE for instance.
