    Please note that if your status light is YELLOW,
    you are probably behind a firewall.
    Correcting this will boost your download.
    It was said in TheShadow's Experimental BitTorrent Client's Official Website.

    How can I correct this? How can it be fixed?? Whats the solution for this??? Plzzzzzzzz help I'm getiing very low speed...

    If you click on the yellow light then a box should appear telling you what all of the colored lights mean (as mentioned yellows to do with firewalls and stuff chocking your connection).

    Grrrr that damn yellow light is driving me insane, I just can't get it to turn green, I don't have xp's firewall enabled and I even turned of my firewall (Just for a few minutes to do the test) and I still can't get it to work right

    it takes awhile esp if you had a firewall on then turn it off, give it time it will speed up
    are your ports foward (if you got a router) and no need to turn off you other firewall just configer it

    the box says the yellow light means my system is behind a firewall or proxy server. It says " please look into routing bittorrent through your firewall in order to recieve the best possible download rate". How do I route bittorrent through my firewall?
    I read muchspl2's link but I just explains the processes of bittorrent. The configuration part isnt very clear.
    How do i find know out if im running a software\hardware firewall? And how do i configure it?
    How do i "Access my Linksys Firewall Router's web admin page"?

    I restarted the pc with the firewall off, and after 1 hour or so, still have the yellow light, and I don't have a router, why the hell I can't get it to work right, sometimes I get speeds like 20 KB/s but most of the time I'm downloading at 5 or 6 KB/s max, I've never seen the green light

    Dont use the xp firewall, will always give you a yellow light unless configured.
    and I use no firewall or av either, just so much easier ....
