alright people this is it, this is the last time i'm gonna say this, i'm gonna try to be as clear as i possibly can to explain "how to make bittorrent downloads faster" since it's the name of the thread: -The best way to get faster downloads on bittorrent is if you have your ports open. How do you know if you have your ports open? Well, if you're using Bit Tornado or Azureus, there's a light that tells you the status of the download (in Azureus it's a round face, a smiley or whatever). NOTE: if you're still using the basic bittorrent client, please download a better one, like azurues or bit tornado. -Anyway, if you have a yellow light, that means your ports are NOT open. If this is your case, then how do you open your ports? I don't know, it's different for every firewall. Do a little research of your own on a search engine like "google.com", type something like the name of your firewall and the word "ports" or "forward ports", whatever, there's bound to be a website that explains how to open the ports on your firewall. -when you open your ports and get a green light, ur done, there's really nothing else that can increase ur download speed as much as by opening ur ports, u can try tweaking the client settings, but that usually doesn't really help much. -so that's it, i know this isn't very helpful, but thats all i know. if there's is someone out there that has more knowledge then me on this, they probably not going to respond, at least i did.
