Don J, the solution is to limit the upload speed in uTorrent to less than the maximum upload speed (I would suggest 80%). Some Torrent clients will auto-configure the upload speed as part of the setup.

The reason to limit the upload speed is TCP/IP sends ACK packets when you are downloading. If the ACK packet can't get through fast enough because your upload stream is monopolized by the Torrent upload, then the download slows down.
