    Hi guys,

    I use Transmission for downloading torrents and it's been going really slowly lately and I can't figure out why.

    When I check on Transmission it says that it's using port 51413, as per the picture below.

    So I go into my BT Homehub set up page and set up an application sharing option for Transmission like so:

    I have this forwarded to the MAC address of my Airport card.

    Am I doing something wrong here? Right now I'm downloading something and I'm apparently using 15 of 23 peers and it's going at 3.0 KB/s....

    Is it just this one torrent that's going slow? Because if it is, it's probably the torrent's fault. Lots of peers doesn't necessarily mean a great dl speed.

    No man, I have two that are going slow. One of them is going at 31 KB/s and that's the fastest. The other two are going at 1.4KB/s and 1.0KB/s. The other two use different trackers.
