Default torrent and comp

am running a cable internet connection and when i try to download torrents it is really slow. I called my friend and he said that the torrent that im trying to download has 100+ seeders. im thinking this is a problem with me it could be my comp or it could be my connection. i am trying to download naruto, an unlicensed anime

here are my comp specs tell me if i need anything else

You most likely have the ports blocked that torrent uses. Free the ports, and your speed shall increase dramaticaly.

maybe the torrent could have 100+ seeders, but how many leechers does it have?
