Why is my DSL connection getting clogged by Bittorrent even after closing it?

This started happening a while ago, but now it seems to be every time I run Bittorrent.
Almost as soon as I open it I can do absolutely nothing else on the internet. Can´t access any pages on Firefox or Chrome, Skype goes offline, and the only thing that send or receives anything is Bittorrent.
Closing Bittorrent or even restarting the computer doesn´t fix it. It only goes away when I restart the modem and router (I´m connected to a DSL connection via a USB belkin wireless adapter).
I´m seeding a bunch of torrents and am trying to download some others, but this happens even before any actual upload or download takes place.
Is this some malware? Any ideas on how to fix this?
