Upload settings

Check your upload speed setting in transmissions preferences. It should be about 80% of your available bandwith, any higher and you will see significant slowdowns.

Have you tried inserting/removing a TOS adapter? They are slighly longer then the old headphone plug, and less likely to damage your system.
