"Gamefuel should be enabled on that router as it provides an essential feature. However, in order for the router to properly classify traffic is must first know the WAN upload speed (as the only scheduling the router performs is upload scheduling), and second it must be able to accurately classify traffic.
When the router determines that you are transmitting too much traffic, and are thus saturating your uplink the router will schedule traffic. If there is too much traffic scheduled it will run out of buffer space, and you will lose your WAN connection, and in some cases the router will become unresponsive until the buffers clear.
In order to alleviate that problem set the WAN uplink to EXACTLY the number quoted to you by your ISP. Then create rules for Bittorrent that place them as one of the lowest priorities, and rules for your high priority traffic.
Although dynamic classification can help to fully enjoy the benefit from QoS upload scheduling you should attempt to manually create rules for your most and lease important traffic, and then rely on dynamic classification for all that falls in between."
joe_dude suggests creating a rule for bittorrent port(s) with a priority of 255 for TCP and UDP (for DHT).
