    I just started using bit torrents and am only getting 20-30kb/sec. I have a 3mb cable connection and other people with my connection are getting around 100-150kb/sec. I don't use a router. Can anybody help? A 2.5GB file is taking over 25 hours!

    disable your firewall and any thing that uses the internet to run, it will slow your speed. For a router the ports are 6881-6889. you dont have to if u dont have a router. What client are you running?

    Ok I shut off ZA and SP2 firewall. I have tried many clients but right now I'm using Azureus (sp?) and I'm getting the torrents from suprnova.org I was up to around 40-50kb/sec but my 1.8GB was still taking 8+ hours. I don't have a router and all my firewalls are off. Am I missing something?
