Did you do the port forward thing? Just follow the guide on bitcomet, pretty straight forward. You only have to do it once, EVER.

#1: 2.81 -> 3.03 -> 3.11 DoH (no more :D)
#2: 1.00 -> 1.5 -> 3.03oe-c
#3: Ceramic white 1.5 -> 3.03oe-c -> 3.40oe
Whatever happens, happens...

I just thought i would add i have started to use this program and it works like a charm i feel it blows utorrent out of the water.

I am converted.

I used BitComet for about a week. I followed various guides in setting it up and still could not get very many downloads to finish quickly. After having a download sit at ~32% for 3+ days, I switched to uTorrent and queued up the same download and it finished in less than 12hrs.
I would not recommend BitComet to anyone, especially when uTorrent does not take any brainpower to setup and use and uses 5k of your memory to run as opposed to 60k for BitComet.
