My modem/router resets itself when I opened utorrent or turn on my headset

It's not all the time but sometimes, whenever I add a torrent or else turn my headset on (it's wireless and needs a USB).

So, whenever I turn the headset on, my modem/router (I only have one item so I assume it's a combo modem/router) resets. As in, it's like I unplugged it and then plugged it back in.

Oddly, I have to do that to reset it properly. Like it will activate itself properly but I can't get the wi-fi signal on my phone/laptop/PS3/Xbox/etc

It only happens on my laptop and only when I do one of those two things.

Nothing to worry about just the NSA spying on you and sending your information to the RIAA and MPAA to build a case against you

My router will "forget" it's firmware when I use utorrent. i have to reset it in the small hole behind to get it back to normal.
I can't figure why because I am an ignorant who can't even understand the problem.

One of my old routers would freak out if I used the DHT network with torrents, disabling that would let it work fine.

The reason I found online was that to the router, the traffic for DHT trackers would look like a DDoS attack.
