There should be bandwidth limits somewhere in the config file. I'm using 0.5myself, I'm guessing you're on 0.7, but look around in freenet.conf or whatever configuration files you can find for some kind of input and output bandwidth limits. I suggest running a speed test on your connection (just google 'internet speed test', there's tons of them out there), and rounding the speeds down to the nearest 100kbps or so and setting that as your limits. I've actually found that lowering the OUTGOING bandwidth limit a bit helps my browsing speed a lot more than limiting the incoming bandwidth.
