    I used the tut from my last post and forwarded the port and everything and it is still going like 15kb/s I have dsl so why is it taking so long?

    Any ideas?

    Next time use the Help Desk forum in the technology section. You have to find a torrent that has a lot more seeders than leechers. If there are not many seeders, it will be hard to get fast downloads.

    With torrents you have seeders. If your not familiar, seeders speed up the download by letting you download it off their computer as well.

    The more people seeding = the faster your download will be.

    Just look for downloads that have a heavy amount of seeders and it won't go as slow.

    It should speed up even more if you followed the tutorial, and have a decent connection.

    Depends on the torrent you're downloading like they said. If no torrents are running quickly, maybe your ISP is retarded and throttles downloads to some outrageous extent?
