ACER T120 WIRED DESKTOP. XPpro - sp3 - IE8 - 2Gb (max) RAM

I tried to download a movie the other day. After 19 hours the finished product just had black screen & no audio. The file size was 800k so I guess it did contain something.

Be that as it may, I was looking for a faster download site and came across a forum talking about speeding up ones router, by making sure that the port figure was correct.
As this was in 2005, I was wondering if the info is likely to be the same,,,, or moved on somewhat since then. I have a BT HomeHub 2.0.

Please feel free to mention Faster free download sites.

thanks

Port forwarding.click here you will not get much help here for torrent problems as most people seem to think that whatever you are downloading via a torrent must be illegal.Best to use the forum of whatever torrent client you are using.They will also have instructions on the unpacking etc of torrent files.

Thanks for the heads up.
I've never downloaded a movie before, and to be truthful, I assumed - in my naivety - that as there are so many openly download sites about, that it was now o.k. No excuse.

cheers
