    I'm using Shadows Experimental BitTorrent right now and I'm trying to download some music, however the entire time BitTorrent has been open the light that shows the status hasn't changed from yellow, which is odd because I don't think I'm behind a firewall. What can I do to change this and speed up my download. Thanks for the help in advance...

    if you have a router, you are behind a firewall. you need to open the ports 6881-6999. if you are on a large school network you wont be able to open ports without hacking the gibson. good luck.

    If you can access the admin panel on your router, goto virtual server and direct ports 6881-6999 to your IP. I did that and now my downloads fly, while my brother is wondering why his BT downloads are snot slow!!! Te, hehehe.
