Proftpd kicking users

I have proftpd installed and working on my computer however whenever someone is uploading it cuts off the download after a little while, usually around a couple mb. I am posting my config file, please feel free to make sugestions and point out what is wrong, a friend of mine made me this config file seeing as I know nothing about it. Infact a better config file would be apreciated. All I want is users with accounts on my computer to be able to upload and download in their home dir and have download access from /ftp

#Config file for FTP servers

ServerName "Unique3's Server"
ServerType standalone

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask 022

#Just some config things
DeferWelcome off
DeleteAbortedStores on
HiddenStor on

#Speeds up connections BIG TIME!!
IdentLookups off
UseReverseDNS off

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
MaxInstances 30

# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
User ftp
Group ftp

UseFtpUsers off

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
AllowOverwrite on

# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories.
DefaultServer on

ServerIdent on "Welcome to my FTP Server."

#some logging stuff
TransferLog /var/log/proftpd/xfer21.log

<Anonymous /ftp>
User ftp
Group ftp

# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
# UserAlias anonymous ftp

# An attemp to make all files stored in ~ftp belong to ftp
UserOwner erik
GroupOwner smbuser

# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 10 "Sorry."
#limits misc things

<Directory />
<Limit ALL>
IgnoreHidden on

#make it so nobody can write to the defaul dir
<Limit STOR>

#but it's ok if they read
<Limit READ>

<Directory upload>
<Limit STOR>
