Connection drops when downloading using patchers

I use the Linksys WRT54g with tomato CFW 1.26. When I use patchers for AoC, Champions Online, and LotROs frustrating patcher I start out with a high download until it stops and I have to relaunch the patcher. With bit torrent I always have a constant fast speed with no connection loss. I play games like TF2 with a great ping while downloading files at 2 Mb/s, but its a completely different story with these patchers. Is it something I don't have configured correctly in my routers settings?

Shut down any other BitTorrent clients while using those patchers. Generally they also (secretly) use the BitTorrent protocols and it's possible they can get confused.
Probably not a whole lot you can do. I've seen regular BitTorrents (not game patches) perform in exactly this way, as well, and I've yet to figure out why.
