Reading around on the forum with your router make "zyxel" sheds some light on this. You should go through the http://portforward.com/guides.htm and follow the guide for your router for uTorrent. That will help you setup the forwarding. Also using the "Setting up your Connection" guide from the Guides page (linked below) will help you in uT.

Additionally after all that is set, checking you can indeed receive your ISP line-rated speeds for bittorrent traffic can be checked from http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/ or http://www.slackware.com/torrents/

"my maximum speed is 915 kb but i mostly dont get it."

You mean your download, upload, or BOTH?

BitTorrent is tit-for-tat, meaning you should get download speed roughly equal to your upload speed on larger/slower torrents. However once you get over 90% of a large (200+ MB) torrent, then there's fewer and fewer peers you can continue downloading from...and speeds MAY decrease as a result of that.

Barring that, have you set your upload speed equal or under the upload speed your connection can sustain?

An upload graph that is all jagged instead of a smooth line is a sign of overload!
