Amule and ktorrent are crashing my modem.

Hi there,

I'm trying to use amule and ktorrent with my D-link 500g modem but it always "crashes".
Five minutes after i start using those programs, my modem stops routing, i mean, i cannot ping/access any site or resolv a url (so the dns server stops too). Even when i close those programs, my modem doesn't work until i restart it. How can i solve this problem? Does anyone have problems like those?

It happened to me on a AP connected to a dsl modem. The modem/router had to be changed because it wasn't working with this dsl line. And it made the Zyxel AP reboot.. Nice..
Try to constantly ping the router and see if stop responding after some time.
man ping
In my case, after sending special packets, the AP was going off but nice of him was going on again after 5seconds. Exactly what you need for amule for your ratio

It was also visible using
tail -f /var/log/messages
There were messages appearing in this file at the time of the reboot.
I think it was a dlink also..
