    We need more information.

    1) Do you have a firewall?
    2) What is your advertised speed?
    3) What BT client do you use?
    4) Is this with 1 torrent, or all other torrents?
    5) If it is with all other torrents, how many seeds and peers do you get around average?

    I have McAfee firewall and I use Bit Tornado. I get slow speeds with all torrents. On average i get 8 peeers and 18 seeds. The light always stays yellow.
    I have never seen it turn green. I really dont know what my advertised speed is.

    I would switch clients ot Azureus, because it's one of the fastest and most popular BT clients, AND it automatically opens up ports for you, AND it does a check after installation to see whether your internet settings are configured right.

    If you're only getting 8 seeds and 18 peers, that file isn't very popular. That may also be another reason you are getting slow speeds.
