Another firewall question (I know, I know...)

Okay guys and gals, I've had problems with firewalls all my life. For the first time I'm living on my own and control the internet settings so I figure I finally can live firewall free, and suddenly I find myself in the thick of it once again! I have a 5mbit cable connection hooked up to a Wireless Router and then a hardline into my computer (the wireless part is for the laptop). The router make and model is Belkin F5D7230-4, and the client I'm using is BitComet. I went to PortForward.com and did everything it says to do. I no longer have the red FIREWALLED by my username, but I'm noticing that I'm not connecting to all the peers. The connected seeds/peers on one torrent is [0/6] out of [5/14] and the other is [0/3] out of [3/8]. I'm not sure if it matters that I'm merely seeding these two torrents, or what. I'm really hoping to get this issue resolved because I hate being firewalled. This router is a pain in the ass but I need the wireless connection. Am I still firewalled or is it normal to not connect to that many users while not firewalled? Thanks for reading this much and any help/advice.

You will never connect to everyone. If it doesn't say you're firewalled then you're good to go.

Yes, it makes a difference that you are only seeding. Most bt clients have a default to not connect you to other seeds. That is most likely (unless you changed the default) why you are not connecting to any seeds on those two torrents. As for not connecting to all the leechers, I've rarely ever seen that happen (I think the only time I've seen it happen is if I'm the only seeder).
