[Novalug] DSL/network question

Bittorrent tends to create a lot of connections, and many of Verizon's cheap routers have a limited capacity to track the connections needed for NAT. It's likely the router is simply not able to handle additional sessions when Deluge has a lot of connections open. If that's the case you should be able to limit the number of connections that are allowed by your Bittorrent client.
It could also just be that Deluge is simply saturating your link, and Firefox is just timing out waiting for it's traffic to get through.

Subject: [Novalug] DSL/network question
I'm running ubuntu, updated to the latest out. I've got a problem and I'm not sure *where* the problem itself lies.
Verizon DSL and a Westel POS router.
If I run two programs that access the internet, say FF as a browser and Deluge as a bittorrent client, I'll (quite) frequently have FF unable to connect (time out error) even though Deluge is still running (apparently) fine - d/l at 70-120kbps, u/l ~20kbps.
In order to use the browser again, I have to shut off the modem, wait at least 15 seconds before turning it back on, and then reboot the computer itself.
Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on with this?
