Sounds like a cheap router. Set the port which transmission uses then tell your router to port forward that same port on both UDP and TCP. This may help

my ports are open ive checked it.
And as a matter of fact with windows 7 and utorrent i can reach the full spead of my line can reach when having enough seeders.

This is surely not working , its not good and really if i need to run virtual box and windows for anything then why not installing windows only and make my life easier and "faster"

Tried a different client?

I asked about tv tuners they said its not linux fault its programmer's fault that dont make drivers
i asked about software they tell me the same

But i didn't even imagine that a linux distribution can be so so SLOW for downloading and internet connection generally, cause it has so many other connection bugs ! Who's fault is this now ?

Sorry ... back to windows , there's really no other alternative except Mac Osx but mac's machines are insanely overpriced so there's really no other alternative
