Why are there different download speeds for the same modem?

I have a Linksys AM300 modem. When I download something via my browser or any download manager, the download speed won’t cross 55kb/s whereas when I download any Torrent, the speed goes up to 210kb/s.

How can I speed my browser downloads? or Why is there such a big difference between the two speeds?

    ok I got it solved.

    there is a nice extension in FIREFOX "DOWNTHEMALL" it boosts the speed to 2X TO 4X depending upon the link sever.
