    23                                 <p>Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) throttle peer-to-peer traffic, and even block it completely on well known peer to peer ports. If your ISP is listed on <a href="http://www.azureuswiki.com/index.php/Bad_ISPs">this page</a>, it is likely you will experience these issues.
    24                                 <p> Transmission's encryption feature may overcome any ISP throttling. Checking the 'Ignore unencrypted peers' box (Prefs >> Peers) also may improve your speed further, at the expense of losing some potential peers in the swarm. Changing the port Transmission uses might help if the ISP targets particular ports.

    2626                                <p>Ultimately, the speed you get depends on the quality of the peers you are downloading from. If they have dial up connections, you are only going to be able to download at dial up speeds.

    33                                 <p>Often this is because the tracker is down, and thus Transmission is unable to interact with other peers. If this is the case, enabling DHT (trackerless torrents) (Prefs >> Peers) might help for public torrents.

    3434                                <p>If there are no seeders in the swarm, and all the other peers have sent you what they have, you (and everyone else) will not be able to complete the download, and your speed will drop to zero.
    3535                                <p>Torrents take a while to get going and so may not download much (if at all) initially. Most torrents are downloading at some rate after 15 or so minutes.

So, in our above example, we would set the Airport extreme to 'Bridge'. See your router's help documentation for instructions.
