coschr Posted June 16, 2011 Report Share Posted June 16, 2011 since I live in a hole (cover me with a rock) it is impossible to get cell phone service at my residence/office. after 5 years of bitching to att, they finally gave a microcell to use in my office. there's still a problem with cell phone reception however, as my voice (outgoing) will break up if the computer is on the internet. incoming voice is fine, as they're usually telling me I'm breaking up. I've narrowed down the problem to whether or not BitTorent is active or not on my system, that determines the clarity of the cell call. right now I have the basic setup for the microcell CAT6 connected off the router along with other computers and a PS3. this configuration has resulted in BitTorent bandwidth tests failing as it detects 2 NATs. BitTorrent network test results OK, as I've port forwarded BitTorrent in the router with a high port range, and set the microcell ports (as advised) with lower ones. what I haven't done is link the microcell directly to the modem and downstream link the router to the microcell (alternate configuration). This may or not solve the problem, but I have some questions. Is there a kill switch to pause all uploads 'immediately'(like when I am receiving a cell call)? Right now my solution is to terminate BitTorrent when the phone rings. Is there a software solution that closes (or pauses) the program when another program demands or signals a request (similar to a phone/fax switch)? Anyone else getting similar problems with VOIP applications and BitTorrent? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
