You need to access your router through you browser and forward the port that you have set Azureus to use.

Depends on the file too, if you have 500 seeders then it`ll download fast if the file has 2 seeders and a few leechers it will be slower.

Not true. I've downloaded files that have had 1-4 seeders, and they have been faster than those with 500 seeders.

Remember, you are not connecting to 500 seeders when you're downloading the file with 500 seeders. You're connecting to a select few.

yeah but at least 10+ seeders and I find my transfer speed is a lot higher with more seeders than fewer.
