Websites load very slow, but torrents and Skype are fine? Here is a fix.

If you find yourself in a situation when your BitTorrent, Skype and other UDP services run just fine, but websites load really slow and often not at all, this simple fix may help you.

There seems to be a problem with µTorrent's support for the µTP protocol. It opens hundreds of connections and overloads your router.

I unchecked the Enable bandwidth management (µTP) option in µTorrent's Options -> Preferences -> Bittorrent dialog and now my website load quickly again.
