Default bitTorrent is too slow

I cant get my torrent to work fast at all. IM downloading files tha say they are legit and legal. For some reason though it stays at 0kbs. I got it to 6 for a couple minutes but thats the best I could do. I turned off the windows fire wall and norton but still nuthin. I also have dsl and win xp of course. Any ideas?

It could be to do with what you're downloading, maybe not enough people are seeding that file.

Bit Lord is pretty good, I havent used the other two

Might I ask what Connection you have? If its dialup I can see those speeds but if you had something like dial up or cable then that would be far too slow. Run a netstat -n and see if there are alot of connections slowing down your system

Yeah, bittorrent is the original client. I'd suggest getting Bitcomet.
And chech the tracker. Don't know how this is done in bittorrent but find it somewhere. See if u get a connection to the tracker and how many peers it gives u. If u can't connect to the tracker then there is something wrong with ur settings or the tracker, if u can and it gives u only a few peers then there just ain't enough ppl sharing the file so u can't get fast download speeds.

no it's not. I can almost everytime get the most I can with my connection (52kB/s) and I have seen ppl getting files with 2.5mB/s. Though that will require a crazy connection.
