Hi - I use to have bittorrent issues as well - when I was directly connected to the internet. Now that I have a broadband router between me and the internet - bittorrent no longer causes any issues. I have no freaking clue what the difference is - the router is set to port forward bittorrent to the box I use for my torrents - but now, it no longer suffers performance wise when running bittorrent. I wasn't having system freezes, just an extremely sluggish system. For whatever reasons, having the router between me and the cable modem instantly and magically solved it.
