    I'm having troubles getting my torrents to run above a 20-25kbs download. I've used the normal torrent client, Bit Tornado, Azureus, and G3Torrent. I have a 1.5mb ADSL connection directly to my computer. I have Win XP but I've turned my firewall completely off. When I test my connection I generally get 1.2mb+, and have never gotten below 750kbs+ even when I am doing a lot of multi-tasking with my connection. I have downloaded other files upwards of 200kbs, and some 1mb+, but torrent remains slow. I have no idea what's wrong, and it's becoming quite a pain to wait a week+ every time I want to download something.

    hmm, how many seeders are on the torrents?

    do you have SP2?

    what colour are the smiley faces next to your torrents?

    under the 'tracker status' column what does it say?
