Bandwidth issues

  • Ever since I switched from using my R7000 Nighthawk to a pfsense box I noticed if I am downloading something whether its using most of my available bandwidth or even half everything else on my home network comes to standstill.  Web pages take for ever to connect to and start loading, remote desktop connections become unusable etc.  I did not have this issue when using the R7000 router.  I have even turned on traffic shaper limiter and tested by limiting a pc, then downloading with that pc (set to use half the bandwidth I have available) and the limiting works but still other connections on the internet are slow.  Ideas what may be wrong or how to resolve this?
