If it is hard drive speed, Mussel's recommendation would solve it because that happens when you have a ton of connections open and there are a ton of random reads and writes. Limiting the number of connections essentially makes this a non-issue if you're drive isn't close to full.
Well I felt it was WORTH mentioning, seeing as how I/You have no way of knowing what He/She is running in the Back ground while torrenting, and Limiting connections Wouldn't fix the issue if Say for instance the OP was over loading the Drive with Multiple programs running @ once. So THAT is why I mentioned it.

I'm assuming the user is smart enough to test it without anything else (minus a browser) running. Maybe that's a bad assumption?

Torrent traffic get's bandwidth managed by a lot of ISP's ever thought that could be the issue? really surprised no one has mentioned this :wtf:
This. I am almost certain this is the answer.

Not possibly subjecting this kind neighbor to a lawsuit would probably be your best bet.
Lets not immediately assume that OP is a piece of shit.
