    sometimes torrents are just slow. it depends on the connection of the others you are getting it from too. I haven't made any adjustments to my settings and I regularly reach speeds of 600kb/s download, but sometimes I get files that only reach 60kb/s. I have a 4.0 megabyte line, but all that does is allow me to reach these speeds on multiple downloads at the same. every once and a while it is a good idea to unplug your cable/dsl modem for a few seconds and plug it back in. My friend has dsl (1,300kb/s) and he reaches these speeds too, he just can't open as many files as I can at once. Go to www.dslreports.com and run whatever speed tests and tune up programs you need. Odds are your slow speeds are in a "Windows" setting, not "Bit Tornado".
