Default Speeding up uTorrent downloads

Shouldn't be an issue discussion wise because there's no implication of piracy.

I have a couple downloads on the go, they're big old things but i'm only hitting D:3.50k and U 2.13k on speeds. It's really frustrating and i'd like to know how i can get these speeds up to the 150s i've had before. I have port forwarded already, what else is there to do.

Try a real high port number and see if that helps. The speed of the torrent usually depends on the seeders. Slow speeds are caused by a low number of seeders.
