(This is because saturation of the slower uplink can greatly slow the normally much faster downlink.) To ensure fairer allocation of network capacity for all users, it may be desirable to throttle (degrade) peer-to-peer file sharing.
Universal Plug and Play is used by peer-to-peer file sharing applications to map incoming ports in order to permit incoming file sharing connections, and it has no value for most other typical Internet uses, so disabling it thus degrades the performance of peer-to-peer file sharing without adverse affects to most other users.
In addition, it can be a security risk, so it's a good idea to disable it for that reason as well. To help prevent saturation of the uplink (see Introduction above), set it to 80-95% of the measured uplink speed with nothing else active. Most standard network protocols use computer networking ports below 1024, whereas peer-to-peer protocols normally use computer networking ports above 1023, so giving lower priority to Internet traffic above computer networking port 1023 will tend to throttle peer-to-peer traffic without significant adverse effects on other Internet traffic.
From Add/Edit Service on Qo S, define (Add) these two Qo S service types for the computer networking port range 1024 to 65535, and then Apply Settings: Effective peer-to-peer file sharing depends on relatively long network connections, so setting short network connection timeouts both degrades the effectiveness of peer-to-peer file sharing and frees connections for use by other protocols, although timeouts should not be set so low that standard Internet uses are also degraded.
Peer Block is a new version (aka a "fork") of the popular Peer Guardian 2 software.
It blocks "known bad" computers from accessing yours, for example governments, corporate entities, and those flagged for anti-p2p activities. You can also attach log/conf files, images of screenshots, or zip files to better describe your problem.
Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various issues that remain unaddressed in the latest (~3 year old) version of PG2. Make sure to read the "Known Issues" sticky to see if your problem's already known (and maybe resolved), and also for what we need from you if we're going to be able to help! You can also post and report any problems you're having with the forum software itself or if you have any ideas on how to improve it, or just generally post any discussions you have not specifically related to Peer Block Support.

When configuring a router for shared access to the Internet, users of peer-to-peer file sharing applications like Bit Torrent and e Mule can seriously degrade performance for other users, particularly on asymmetric connections like cable and DSL.
