    Make sure that the necessary ports are opened on your firewall/router. Unfortunately I don't know what the defaults are off the top of my head, but if you go into Preferences, they should be listed there.

    Good luck with the movie previews and game demos you're downloading ;)

    Sounds like a NAT problem to me. You need to forward ports 6881-6889 to which ever machine you are downloading with.
