BandwidthRate 20KB
BandwidthBurst 20KB

Are you trying to use your Tor as both a client and a server? The bandwidth limits that Tor uses affect all incoming traffic -- so by setting a bandwidthrate of 20KB/s, you're limiting your incoming traffic to way less than you could get otherwise.

The temporary fix is to do a bandwidth shaping script like
the one Mike Perry uses (Mike, is this posted somewhere?),
or to run two Tors (one a server, one a client -- see
http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#RunTwoTors for
details, which are alas quite sparse for the case of Windows), or to
turn off the server side for now, or to wait patiently for us to add a
feature (hopefully in 0.1.2.x) that will only rate-limit certain classes
of traffic.

Hope that helps,

Since i moved the tor server browsing and others is fine in my network.Shame cause i'm a tor sustainer but the cosume of bandwith is too high(and also adsl bill) and is proportional to the amount of bandwith someone has.I don't use tor as server and client.I have a tor aon each machine in my network and the one on the gateway machine is doing the server and just that i'm really sorry for me too but i can't sustain that.I think tor developpers should repair that.
