Speeding Bittorrent up on a 56K Modem
So I'm getting fed up with being connected to like, 5 seeds, and donloading a file that'll drop down to about 1 or 0 kb/s, with occassionally popping up to 4,5, or even 6 kb/s. Is there any way you guys know that I can increase my chances of a good dl speed? Or at least maintain that high level? I read something somewhere about 'opening up your ports'... but it seemed like I needed to be on broadband or something to get that. I just have an ordinary dial-up modem. Any clues?
EDIT: Actually, here's a bit more detail if it helps: I'm using BitComet, it's a 56.6.k modem... actually, I can't think of any more details. Help please?
