I've been running transmission for my torrent needs for a while now, and have been quite pleased with how lightweight it seems, unlike Azureus which i used to use. Recently though, when I have had transmission open, my internet has slowed to a snails pace. Some times it works, and I can be downloading at almost 1000kb/s from 50 users, with no slow down, but other times I will only have 10-20kb/s from 10 users, and I can't even load google. I'm not too familiar with port forwarding and the likes, so I have really just left the preferences the same other than increasing the max number of connected peers, which I don't think is the problem, because I am usually in my schools library, which should have more than enough power to handle lots of connections. By default it uses port 5555 and automatically maps ports, and says that it is in stealth mode, whatever that means. If someone could clue me in to why it would periodically affect my web browsing, that would be great, and even better, if someone could tell me how to get that port open as opposed to stealth mode, I would also appreciate it. I have an Airport Express 802.11g router at home. Thanks!!
