Hey everyone. I was wondering if any of you use BitTorrent to download anime/movies/shows online? If you do, could you help me with this problem?

I downloaded my BitTorrent from Animesuki.com (Awesome site!) and lately, my download speeds have been HORRIBLE. I have a cable connection but my download speed only reaches to 10 KiB/s whereas the upload speed is twice that.

I know I have to open my ports, and I went to https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 and found out that the BitTorrent ports (6881-6889) are all Stealthed even though I went into my Network Connections and thought I opened them up. Could someone please make a detailed, easy to read list of steps I would have to take to open up my ports (so that they change from "Stealth" to "Open/Closed") so that I can download faster?

Thank you so much in advance!!

Edit:
Well, I found out how to open my ports by myself!! if anyone is interested, you can go here and follow the instructions. (http://p2p.weblogsinc.com/entry/0401842428674831) They're pretty easy and straightforward! So, if I can figure it out, you certainly can as well!

Although, my download speed isnt as fast as it should be though. Anyone have any idea on how to speed it up?
