I currently use a Qubee broadband 1mbps connection and when downloading torrents the utorrent sign does not show up green. I use two computers and since I have been using two computers this has happened also while normal browsing the speed gets extremely slow.
I was thinking that would I have to port forward both computers or so maybe do something else!
Torrent speed also depends on how many peers and seeds there are for the torrent file you are downloading. If it is working then you dont need to do port farwarding from what I understand unless you suspect your ISP is throtteling speeds on certain ports. Utorrent actually has an option to randomly select port if you want to give it a try. Should be somewhere in the settings.
