anyone any idea wat the problem could be?

The symptoms you describe can be caused by a less than optimal network connection or an untuned Linux network configuration.

Although I wrote a long article based on an older version of openSUSE, everything in it still applies today, in particular changing your TCP/IP Congestion Control algorithm.

In fact, towards the end, I describe my early experience running a P-P torrent application over WiFi (both activities which are highly contrary to a default Linux configuration) which you might notice closely matches what you describe until I made my modifications.

The above link describes how to not only choose and change your TCP/IP Congestion Control algorithm, but also configuring TCP/IP buffers if your machine has ample amounts of physical RAM while not running any particularly heavy non-networking load.

HTH,
TSU
