      Poor wireless reception/interference. You could try changing the channel just incase you are on a similar one to your neighbour.

      Wireless can be very hit and mis, you have 13 channels to choose from start at the top and work your way down. You will find the settings in your router config pages.

      It could be your max-ing out your wireless connection with to many HTTP1.0 simultaneous connections
      or you are uploading to much for the wireless connection to cope with, one of the options using utorrent is to limit your upload speed try and change it to 20/30 KB/s instead of unlimited up speed.
