I am desperately needing help with Bit Torrent. I am getting such slow download speeds about 2k/bps. I have a 1.5MB cable connection. There are 4 of us in the house with a wireless router.
I have read that i need to enable ports 6881 to 6889 - both in my firewall (windows XP) and on my router.
Firewall wise I have tried I have put port 6881 under exceptions in windows firewall section but there is no box to put a range in ie 6881-6889 and this has made no difference anyway.
Router wise - its just a standard wireless router and im not sure how it was setup as a professional did it for us.
i have tried putting cmd into run but nothing comes up in the dos box - just the prompt.
I would really appreciate some advice on this - bear in mind I am a novice tho :-|
