    Hey chaps.

    I have just got bt broadband, and a homehub v2. However I am trying to use utorrent on my desktop. The main router that is being used is a TP- Link TD-W8960N which is then plugged into a powerline adaptor. This comes out of the other powerline adapter in another room and goes into the bt homehub which I am using as a hub, the ethernet cable comes off this into the desktop.

    When I use my laptop on the wireless and connect with utorrent I can get speeds of up to 1MB d/l but when I use the desktop I can only get around 10 - 20 KB's.

    I have followed stuff online and set port forwarding on the homehub but I am still getting terrible speeds.

    Can anyone help?
