    Torrent speed slow on a certain device but fast on others.

    I have 2 PC's at home with bit torrent. With exactly the same settings and same download the one does 50kb/s and the other 800kb/s Notes: Normal direct downloads and steam updates are fast and the same speed on both. The MSI Z97 GAMING 5 has a killer lan adapter could that be the issue? Thank you
