Default Issure with BitComet (download speeds)

i have verizon dsl its like 768/2xx something. i'm on wireless off a router and it says that the port to connect to the public thingy is blocked so i get download speeds of 100kb/s average with like 20-30 peers. i know how to port forward and i do it correctly and it still says its blocked. so any suggestions would be helpful, cause i know people who have the same connection as me and can get download speeds of anywhere from 500-800kb/s...

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Have you tried uTorrent? It's the best lightweight program. Also, it's uPnP is pretty nice.

on a 768k downstream, 100kbps is about the max you will see.... On my 1.5Meg DSL, my max speed is typically in the 150-160kbps range.... There is no way anyone getting 500-800 kbps is on a 768k line. Perhaps they are mistaken and have either a faster line, or are getting 50-80 kbps.

2 try a different port
3 uTorrent rocks / Azureus also good

Also check the site you are downloading from. Many sites ahve blocked BitComet cause it reports the wrong stats back to the server.
