    Why are my downloads so slow: As I said earlier the downloads are proportional to your uploads so if you upload less then you will also download less. If you are lucky you may begin downloading the file while there are lots of seeds, and since they have completed 100% of the file they will be uploading to you and not downloading from you and hence your download will be increased.

    Well, it depends. How many seeds are there? How many peers are there? How big is the download? Are you on a router, and if so are the necessary ports being forwarded?

    All of these things can affect download speeds. I've gotten up to 400 kb/s from bittorrent.

    are you behind a firewall and sometimes it takes about half/hour to boost it up myn goess 15/kpbs after the first 15-30 min then goes up to 50 and then sometimes up to 90 B)

    BTW you have a broadband right?

    you should configure firewall to bypass bittorent unless... it already is........ and it also takes patience....
