    Try using only 10 ports, for ex 7000-7010 or 44000-44010.

    Many Ispīs is blocking traffic on ports 6881-6999.

    All of your ports operate at the same speed


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    Many ISPs throttle ip ports -- either blocking in or out completely on them or only giving the "file-sharing" ones (1214,6346,6881-6899) reduced speeds well-below your connection's max speed.

    Oftentimes, ip ports associated with the World Wide Web (HTTP://www. .com stuff) gets priority over 'random', unimportant ip ports.

    So, how would you do that, when downloading with BT, open up the options and set the ports differently? then switch them in your router too?

    change the ports in both before you start downloading though, that would prolly be the right way round

    Edit - In Azerus you only need to have one port open

    So I can just pick any number I want between 1 and 99999?
