Default Internet problems


I have a fast internet connection. (4MB) I have a sagem modem. I just plug the usb into the modem, and the telephone socket into the modem, and then into the wall. When I download of the net I get excellent speeds. I can download linux in about 20 minutes. However, With bittorent, I get really slow speeds (20kb/sec. After reading up on this, quite a few sources say "wait for the torrent to get moving" But I have waited over an hour, And still no good speeds.

I have tryed different download methods, I downloaded ABC, Bittorrent, and Azaerus. All my torrents have plenty of seeders. I have no firewall , So all my ports are open.

I have read around, And some sources mention a "router" I have no idea what these are, and where I can get them from, And How I use them. Zcould somebody please advise me on what to do next??? thanks.

Default Re: Internet problems

I have no experience using any kind of torrent software, but aren't they usually very slow?
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
