BitTorrent Downloading

I am on the 2mb Premier service and my internet runs fine on surfing and gaming. The only problem I get is that when downloading BitTorrent files i get a max of about 20kb. Its not the router that is causing the problem because since I have upgraded to a NetGear DG834G. Any reason why and how to solve this?
Thanks

BitTorrent Downloading

There are a load of posts about slow bit torrents at the moment.

If you're sure you're connected properly, with ports forwarded on your router (green faces on Azureus), that's number one.
Next, don't use the default port or any near it - use one several thousand away as some sites block a range of ports round the default.
Third, try this test torrent which was giving 230k last time I used it. If not that, you should get something decent with it.

A lot depends on your seeders and the number connected, but on Premier, it's definitely not Pn that are limiting it.
