    im going crazy here, i have a wrt54g v2 and have spent the entire day reading up on threads to fix my bittorrent problem. Whenever i run bittorrent, my whole network goes to crap. I use a link i found to some site that told me which settings to set in azureus so im pretty sure thats ok. i upgraded my firmware to Thibor15c, i have ports 15142, 6880-6999 and 14868 forward to my computer which i have setup with a static IP. i have max connections at 2048 and QoS setup with bittorrent set to low, however my internet still dies whenever i start running bittorrent. is there something im missing?

    What limits did you set in the CLIENT software?

    Often it's easier to choke things to reasonable levels on the $2,000 PC than it is on the $50 router.

    200 max global connections, 50 per torrent

    Bittorrent help

    Try capping you upload spead. (find out what you upstream limit is with your isp and set it lower to save room for web surfing... my isp caps my up stream @ 800Kbit so I cap utorrent @ 50kb (I used to use bittornado and bit comet and did the same thing)

    even browsing / surfing web pages requires upstream activity.

    Have you found the script to program into the router to limit the number of active connections??

    Here it is:

    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
    echo "600 1800 120 60 120 120 10 60 30 120" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts

    It would help to mention which BT app you are using. Some are better than others. I've heard BitComet is really bad.

    Those 2 numbers you gave don't seem like much data.

    The settings I use for uTorrent (a great P2P app!):

    Under Network I set the download speed to 70% of my available MEASURED speed. You have to test with a speed-checker first, you might think you have a 5 meg line but actually only get 4.5 megs for example. Then I set upload speed to no more than 50% of measured upload speed.

    Global number of connections: 130
    max number of connected peers per torrent: 30
    number of upload slots per torrent: 4
    max number of active torrents (upload or download): 2
    max number of active downloads: 1

    I use this settings in µTorrent.

    Global number of connections: 1024
    Max number of connected peers per torrent: 128
    Number of upload slots per torrent: 28

    Works perfect for me.
