    hes hinting at the illegal uses of BitTorrent. downloading torrents of Linux distros is a example of using BiTorrent legally. what are you downloading and post a link.

    You're not downloading movies, you're downloading a linux distro. ;)
    Downloading Linux Distros on bittorrent is legal, movies is not.
    We're not allowed to help you do illegal things.
    So at the moment you're downloading a linux distro.

    Have you opened the ports on your route?

    I don't think the warnings going to help, 2 other people already tried to clue him in and still he posted the movie name :p

    To the OP, you probably should have left this in one of the 2 other threads you started yesterday asking the same thing.

    Could be your router. With my Linksys WRT54G I could barely get 25KB/sec, last night with my new Linksys WRT54GL I got 650KB/sec!
