Do I need to port forward (Getting on some torrents around 200-300 kbs

I just got a new laptop and I already have port forwarded the bittorrent "ABC" on my pc, although I still have to change it to a static ip (it was originally and now it got messed up) would I still need to make a static ip on my mac and then port forward utorrent? On some torrents I am already getting around 200-300 kb/s on average and sometimes up to 600 kb/s. I have gotten some torrents to average on about 50 kb/s is this just a bad torrent. Will port forwarding make a difference? And does it matter what color the bottom left of the app is (red, yellow, or green) if I am already getting high download speeds (upload speeds around 200-300 kb/s)? Thanks.

If you have a router, you must port forward (or use UPnP or NAT-PMP which auto port forwards...if they WORK!) in order to get unfirewalled.

You may also have software firewalls causing uTorrent to be firewalled. (I don't know what you have!)
