How do I know if I'm being throttled?

I am experiencing some strange behavior with my torrent downloads. When I first start Bittorrent, things are fine and I get reasonably good download speeds. After time (hours?), downloads gradually slow down to a trickle or stop, even though the torrent is incomplete and the status indicates seeds and peers available. I can shut everything down, reboot my computer, and this will restore good downloading, only to have the above behavior eventually repeat again. I have read some of the posts about provider throttling and wonder if this is what is happening to me. Is there a way to tell? I am running Windows 7 and access the internet via my neighbor's wireless router, so I don't have access to it's parameters or setup.
