    2222                                <p>Read these tips for <a href="Speed.html">maximizing your download speed</a>.
    2323                                <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 >> Advanced) 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.

    111111                                                        <p>Transmission allows you to sort your torrents by various criteria. Choose "Sort Transfers By" in the View menu, as well as the Action menu.
    112112                                                        <p>You can also filter your torrents by their activity state. Simply enable the Filter bar in the View menu.
    113                                                         <p>Transmission allows you to group torrents by colour labels. Groups can be assigned upon adding a transfer to the list, and you can drag transfers into different groups to change their colour. You can also right click a transfer (or a selection of transfers) and choose a group from the contextual menu.
    114                                                         <p>These groups can then be used as sorting and filtering criteria. You can even rename the group colours by going to the Transfer Menu >> Group >> Show Groups >> double click a name.

    22                                 <p>You haven't port forwarded correctly. Port forwarding opens a port in your firewall or router so that incoming connections from the outside world can be made with Transmission. If the port is forwarded, other people in the torrent can see you, thus increasing your potential number of connections, which more importantly, may increase the speed of your download.

    2323                                <p>You need to port forward if you share your internet connection with a router, or if your broadband modem is a router itself. In most cases Transmission can do this automatically, see <a href="portforward.html">this page</a> for instructions on port forwarding.

    22                                 <p>Yes. To add trackers to a currently running transfer, go to Inspector > Tracker, and click the plus button (+). To remove them click minus button (-). Multiple trackers can also be added to torrent files you create.

Multiple trackers can also be added to torrent files you create. Currently trackers will be added to a tier before Tier 1, meaning attempts to use your custom-added trackers will be made before built-in trackers.
