Default torrent program that works with wireless internet?

Hi,

I tried bitcommet but it was really slow on wireless internet.

For you torrent users with wireless internet, which program do you use, and do you need to do anything special to configure the program for wireless internet so downloads so slow?

The reason it is slow is because you are on wireless, not because of your torrent program. There's not really anything you can do to make it faster, other than use a wired connection.

I tried bit torrents using Azureus and downloading the torrents from torrentspy.com... it sucks. I can't get it to work. I am on an ethernet connection. The torrent would start to download from the site and like freeze halfway through on every single one. I never had problems with Azureus... mainly cuz I never got a torrent downloaded to use it. ha!

Wireless is crap. Use µTorrent, good program.
