my isp is qwest and i'm currently hooked up via msn's dsl 1000 modem.

DSL modems sometimes do not like BT when you max out the connection. You sould set your overall to 80-90% of your connection speed. Given that it's a DSL 1000, your overall DL (best estimate) should not exceed 122kbps and UL should not exceed 15Kbps.

Are you running with a router or directly connected?

Try setting BitTornado UL/DL ratio lower to DSL/Cable Slow and to run no more than 2 torrents concurrently. If it works, slowly increase speed until it "breaks" and set it back down to find the "perfect balance". Also, are you doing a lot of HTTP/FTP traffic? If yes, try to limit it right now to isolate the problem.

the modem is connected directly to my computer. that upload/download rate is amazing because my plan is for 650 kbs/250 kbs.

Your ISP might not want you to use BT because of all the pirated software you can download but that's just a maybe. Have you tryed calling your ISP?

It could be as Faint says but it sounds like your typical DSL maxout problem. The UL/DL is shared bandwidth and is causing the connection to collapse and forcing a reboot. The DSL modem can also be a problem - it cannot keep up with all the traffic.

Cable modems use a different technology. It's not really a problem. Some cable modems such as the RCA (white box - first generation) has this problem. Each cable provider and area has a different dl/ul mix so you have to experiment. I think by using clients such as Azureus which manages your total ul/dl speed works best since you only have to manage one global ul/dl ratio. Use the wizard to configure.

ABC is also another good GUI Client but it's no longer being developed.
