mlMac is quite good. What's the other one called...DrumBeat. Shareware app, I've heard good things about that. I use Acqusition regularly - what are you downloading from? Check your speeds on a variety of files, from different people and servers. Might just be a poor connection.

Possibly a Firewall issue? Has it always been this way? If it has, maybe try emailing the Developer - I think he's called David Wanatabe.

uTorrent for Mac and LimeWire. The only two P2P programs you'll ever need :) (and they're both free :p )
