If I start downloading from HTTP on my PC, I can see the torrents drop off in speed. This works perfectly since the only WAN traffic on it is torrents.
that's fine and all, now try doing that across more then one computer. also, use that computer for more then torrenting purposes. it becomes more difficult then.
