Under Transmission, you would use "Edit" then "Speed." I don't know how fast your network is of course, but you could start with a download and upload speed limit of 100 KiB/s to start. If your browsing speed is still slow, cut those figures to 50. If you think your network can handle more, bump that up to 200.

Or use the temporary speed limit feature:

(Note that I'm using the Qt version or Transmission, the GTK+ version may be different)
