How Do I Make My Torrent Downloads Go Faster?

By July 25, 2008

Follow me on:

As techie as this question may seem, the answer is really not so tough. By setting your router and firewall to recognize the special openings called "port 6881 to 6999", your torrent downloads can increase by up to 5x the speed. Here is a quick introduction to opening ports 6881 to 6999 on your computer...

Mindlessly opening up a massive series of ports is NOT a good idea.
just open ONE port for your torrents, and set your torrent client to utilyse it.

Just got a new computer and cannot find a place to log into my VUSE account. It keeps asking me for an activation code which I did not get when I paid for PLUS, or to pay again.
Feels like a great big rip-off, no customer support, no e-mail or phone numbers to contact for help just the Forum.

Exercising at home means you will no longer have to clean up after inconsiderate half-wits that can’t be bothered to clean up their own mess. bodybuilding supplements. can generate enough torque in your workouts which will develop your core, arms and legs.
