    I'm not an expert on internet connections, but I have problem with the torrent client Transmission:

    I've been using Transmission for a while, and it never gave me problems, but recently, whenever I turned on transmission, all of it sudden it seemed to suck up all the bandwidth, and while Transmission is still transferring files, I can no longer browse the internet or do some very simple tasks that do not require a lot of bandwidth.

    I normally limit uploading to 20 kb/sec, and downloading is less than 50 kb/sec,(and I have this setting for a while, but it never gave me problem until recently.)

    Does anybody know what the problem might be? Firewall? my ISP provider? my bittorrent client? my internet setup?

    Uh-Oh. Sounds to me like your ISP is throttling your bandwidth. Check here for your ISP.

    the first thing i ask is, what is your line's speed? 'cause there could be a variety of reasons for this to happen... i use transmission also, but hey, i have 25mb line, so no probs at all. ;)
