Default Upload/Download Not Flexible Enough

I noticed the other day that not only were my dowloads slow, buy my entire internet connection was too. Checking what was going out of my connection, I could see it was up to my absolute limit with people uploading from me. This was causing my downloads and my entire connection to go slow.

Not a problem I thought, I'll just move the slider down a bit. But with my cable internet connection, my upload speed is 1/10th of my download speed, so even at the bottom of the scale it was too high. The only method I could think of to reduce the upload bandwidth was to set my conection as a 56k modem, which didn't allow for as high an upload bandwidth as I would otherwise have given.

Is there anyway to set this with a little more flexibilty? Other people must have come acoss this type of problem before?
