Hi. So whenever I download a game through steam/origin/uplay with 20-35MB/s or a torrent through qbittorent at high speed I can't use anything that requires an internet connection anymore .. can't access google due to "This site can't be reached / dns_probe_finished_bad_config" or steam store or anything .. is this normal?
 


If you swamp your link with lots of connections then even small packets might not make it. 35MBs isn't close to 1Gbs. If you're on wifi it's likely swamping that link or your ISP isn't delivering 1Gbs. If you are on wired then you might want to try a few things like testing from the modem or checking what all settings you turned on. Most routers can only handle basic NAT+DHCP @ 1Gbs. So if you turned on anything else it can cripple it.

With no type of shaping you won't have a good experience trying to download and also load web pages or play games. Throttle your download clients.
