Talking about capping.

Ive noticed every time I leave my machine downloading movie files etc I always get booted off the net, yes, actually compltley booted off and i need to reeboot the modem to get back online, seems to happen when i go to bed and leave the downloads going.

It doesnt happen other than when downloading large files over a long period, iam almost 99% positive that ntl are booting me off when downloading large files.

Is this happening with other people ?

It may not be NTL - I've noticed the NTL200 modem crashes if you hammer it for a long period, the 120 and the motas seem more stable

If you use torrents its probably down to the uploader.
I upload torrents and when ive just started the upload if there is more than 3 people downloading i kick some of them till ive uploaded to one more person.
