You need to forward the appropriate ports to your computer. I can't help you with that particular model router, you'll have to use whatever help services are available to you. Azureus allows you to set the port that it uses (I think it picks a random one the first time you run it)

The Azureus Wiki explains all the terms used. If you can't understand from there, I don't know what else to say.

It's also possible that the torrents your downloading have very few people uploading. 10kb/sec isn't too unusual, but if your connecting is much faster than that then you should see faster speeds, at least on popular torrents.
