I haven't a clue as to what's going on here. I've been on the phone with my ISP several times and haven't found an answer that matches my problem anywhere.
This just recently started happening. The only thing that has changed physically is that they replaced the old 20 year old cable coming from the pole outside to the house. Everything else has worked fine in the past.
While downloading torrents, my internet goes out. But, I'm still downloading torrents at full speed. I've tried pfing, lowering my number of connections, upload and dload speeds in utorrent. Nothing seems to work. I've even switch from ethernet to wifi to see if that would do anything................

I am not a super strong network guy
I am thinking maybe it is the port that your torrent client is using
what torrent software do you use?
I use utorrent (for my non copyrighted material of course)
works well and very lightweight (not a resource hog)
try a different torrent client and see if you have same problem
chances are its your isp disconnecting you. some monitor there services and limit or disable access to p2p traffic at certain times of the day or ban it all together.
get on to them and ask them for a web addi that shows the T'Nc's and traffic management protocols... you may find that they do have heavy restrictions in place for people who go over the usage quota or use p2p.
a quick email should sort this out.
if you find that traffic management has nothing to do with it, you can ask them to run a diag on your line. the chances are they will find a problem. especially if you recently had a connection replaced.
still have an issue? then try reinstalling your ethernet drivers.
