    In BitRocket I am noticing that when on Wireless even a few FT from the router ( NetGear G ) I am barely able to maintain a fraction of my download speed, even on privately run well seeded torrents. This is hampering me in downloading and uploading items to family as-well as sorting my other files out.

    BitRocket reports in the preferences/network section that

    "unable to map ports or they have been mapped manually"

    I'm unable to find anything to really state how to open a port area for the program to access, in the firewall it's left as default on allow incoming connections.

    Any advice would be great.

    you have to map the port and set up port forwarding in your routers settings. If you're wireless you will most likely have to set up a static ip so that it is forwarded correctly. Google "port forwarding" and I'm sure you'll find some guides.
