Firewall Block all traffic - Big mistake

Yesterday I set my firewall to block all traffic while running a virus scan. Was downloading at 3.7 to 4.7M beforehand with sync of 8128 and sn of 7.2.

After setting firewall to allow traffic again my download speed had dropped to 473kbps and my sync had dropped to 475 at sn of 30.

Restarted router and sync increased back up to 8128 at 6.2sn but downloads have not changed yet. Seems like I'll have to wait another few days to get decent download speeds again.

This could of course be a coincidence but I will not be blocking traffic through my firewall again.
