You have to open them one port at a time with XP....that's how I did it.

Some days I can download at over 100kbps, and some days I can't get above 5kbps (that is independent of the amount of seeders/leechers). In addition, I can never upload much more than 5kbps. I have noticed that it will only allow me to upload 1 kpbs to each user I am connected to.
There are ways to do this, but I've never needed to so can't offer experience of my own. It has something to do with port-forwarding, and using a different range than BT usually uses but spoofing it so that other peers know where to look for you.

Someone here has to know the answer to this.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
