internet broadband connection terminates abruptly now and then

sir, I am gunjan vaishnav,
I use ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala as my desktop OS.
My internet connection is creating problems these days, ever since i started downloading torrents for iso files.

Whenever the downloads in transmission client is running, the internet gets disconnected abruptly, and even my other downloads in d4x stops.

on using the plog command in the terminal, it shows the following :

Sep 5 03:32:57 gunjan pppd[3241]: LCP terminated by peer
Sep 5 03:32:57 gunjan pppd[3241]: Connect time 4.5 minutes.
Sep 5 03:32:57 gunjan pppd[3241]: Sent 2102494 bytes, received 31842568 bytes.
Sep 5 03:33:00 gunjan pppd[3241]: Connection terminated.
Sep 5 03:33:00 gunjan pppd[3241]: Modem hangup
Sep 5 03:34:05 gunjan pppd[3241]: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
Sep 5 03:34:05 gunjan pppd[3241]: Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery
Sep 5 03:35:10 gunjan pppd[3241]: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
Sep 5 03:35:10 gunjan pppd[3241]: Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery

I dont understand much of it, as am a new user using linux systems from only a few months ago, can't find out.

also on closing the transmission client the other downloads in d4x run perfectly well and so does my internet connection.

I know its a noob's query, but hope it does not irritate u.

thanking you.

Sorry, I can't answer this. You might ask the mods to move your thread to the "Networking (- Wireless)" forum, where there might be folks who can help. Good luck.
