    You can either install the classic bittorrent & bittorrent-gui like that :

    Or a more "evolved" client like Azureus :

    generally u need to have no limit for ur download n upload speeds, coz they r proportional to each other.

    it also depends on the availability of wht u r lookin for. the greater the health of tht file, the faster will be ur download. i.e, the more the seeders, the better for u, so choose accordingly.

    there might also be some special tweaks, which, i am not aware of.

    Does Azureus says your firewall and NAT settings are OK ?

    Did you make sure you made the appropriate entries in IPTABLES ?

    Or in your router ?
