    Maybe your ISP has blocked BitTorrent ports.

    Look at the preferences of your BT client and see if the incoming TCP port is working.

    I don't know which client you have, as there are several of them.
    Just open the BT client, go to Preferences (CMD+,) and see if there is a NETWORK section/tab and look at the Incoming TCP port settings.

    I can't help you to unblock the TCP ports though, if that is a problem. Google might help you with finding the right TCP port though.
