If your firewall prevents people connecting to you, your bittorrent
download might go slower, maybe.  You're supposed to open ports for it.
Or maybe it is an issue with uploading interfering with downloading, you
could try running wondershaper.  But I think bittorrent has its own way
of coping with this.
