    I seem to be getting very poor speeds with programs like bit torrent(for legal stuff of course!) when I use the airport express with my powerbook compared to just plugging in the wire. It seems that the port that the client is using is blocked by the AE, but how can I open/forward the port? I can't see it anywhere in the airport admin software.

    Thanks!

    I'm not on wireless right now so I can't check, but isn't there a Port Mapping tab in airport admin utility. I think that's where you do this.
