Now, I have a 512 kbps connection, which isn't that fast, but I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be that slow. I just got this internet service, and I've been able to download torrents fairly quickly. No, that's not the problem--I turn my torrent software off and it's still quite slow.
It's not my firewall. I also already tried opening more ports on firefox.
Oh yes, and I'm on a PC with Windows XP. And I'm not terribly knowledgeable. Any help will help.
