not about port forwarding exactly...

I think I need to switch utorrent to an already open port. I don't have access to the router, so port forwarding is out of the question, sadly. I set it to an open port commonly used for MSN messenger, I think, but it's not getting decent speeds. Any suggestions? Also, yesterday, on a random port, download speeds jumped up to 80kbs/s for about 5 minutes, which is 5 times faster than I've gotten them to go all day today - same torrents. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

A lot of torrents never trade any faster than 15-20k/s; compare yourself to other peers' "Peer dl" numbers.

If you suspect your ISP, turn on protocal-encryption (Options > Preferences > Bittorrent).

One of the worst culprits is "bad" trackers in multi-tracker torrents.
