    Hey everyone, new to the site, but heard great things. :apple:

    ok, so i have a bt homehub, and i want to download things on transmission, but recently it has slowed to a crawling pace, despite having many seeders. :confused:

    So, i heard that to speed it up you can forward ports, and whereas i am a good gamer, i have no practical skills with computers besides a few mainly showy bits of knowledge.

    any help would be greatly appreciated. ;)

    you can open your ports in the port forwarding tab once you access your router via your web browser

    Which of course assumes that the router has a web-based GUI in the first place. I know these are super common, but keep in mind that Apple's AEBS doesn't have one -- you're tied to Airport Utility.
