Every time I use Transmition BitTorrent my adsl disconnects, and when I try to connect it again it says that there is no network hardware (something like that). so I have to reboot to connect again. It's ok if I surf the net, play online games, download from chrome etc.

Could it be that your network/ISP is scanning for torrent traffic and killing connections when it detects them? – adempewolff Jun 3 '12 at 12:08
Does it happen while downloading or idle? – Mitch Jun 3 '12 at 12:09
What happens to all the lights on the ADSL modem when this happens? – izx Jun 3 '12 at 12:22
it happends only when I'm downloading torrent. Light are normal, only light number 1 stops blinking – Alen Jun 3 '12 at 16:08
I don't think it's ISP fault because after it disconnects I can't see my network card, I have to reboot. – Alen Jun 3 '12 at 16:21

I reduced number of connections per torrent, and my problem is gone.
