Do you use traffic shaping, if you don't you should
Mainly problem is that torrent consumes all your upload and lefts no 
space for http/tcp ack packets..

I'm, running 50 users and 8/1 adsl and it works fine, if you use good 
and carefully planned traffic shaping. No matter how much upload traffic 
on bittorrent, the http traffic and websurffing is more important. It 
also prevents one user to "steal" all bandwith... All this happens 

So in my point of view, all upload is consumed by p2p, but all surfing 
happens still smothly...
