Slow Downloads!

Hi i have recently been upgraded to 2mb broadband and have not been able to download things at the advertised speeds! my isp couldnt explain but a friend told me it may be because i have "blocked ports". i am using NTL 2MB and it is a cable modem, If it helps lol, could anyone help me unleash the full potential of my modem?

many thanks, nathan

What sort of downloads?

From FTP / HTTP sites or via bit torrent?

If the latter, then you need to change something or other in the modem but I don't know what...
