Very possible. Wired router usually have low memory, and if you got 1000+ connections going from bittorrent, it's gonna choke and timeout.

Either lower your connections to around 250, or upgrade to a smoothwall/pfsense box.

search the forums, plenty of threads on this very subject.

some routers handle large loads fine, others dont, most home routers are made for hundred of connections per second like P2P does.

Would this affect me playing BF2?

I take my pwnage abilities in that game very seriously and if I were about to waste a guy from a mile away with a TV missile and at the last second you get that stupid 'server connection lost' thing on the screen for like 1/4 second and it screws your whole day you know?
