    I am downloading WoW via the 10 day trail link via Blizzard.com.
    The site offers http downloading and bittorent. It recommends bittorent for faster download.
    I am knew to bittorent programs, so I search MacRumors a bit and downloaded Xtorrent.
    If this is supposed to be faster, why isnt it?

    Standard downloading with 10 hours remaining
    Xtorrent downloading at 3 days remaining

    Ok. This is likely to be noob question but here goes....

    I have a di-624 router.
    When I login the router 192.168.0.1 i see only 2 options that look to provide port configuration:
    Filters
    Firewall

    Any guesses?

    honestly, if you cant take the 3 seconds to google for:

    "port forward di-624"

    then I really cant be bothered to assist you any more.

    ENJOY!!!!!

    LOL. :p

    In theory, if everyone's using the torrent, there will be lots of seeds and thus a better download speed than if everyone was using their direct download, but in practice speeds vary greatly on BitTorrent and you have to have it configured well for the best speeds.
