have tried starting some torrents over the last couple of days and none seem to work all show as having seeders and leechers but just sit there
turned the firewall off no change
its the first time i have used torrents since i got the connection and wondered if it was EE or a setting on the Router

What does here say

Definitely shouldn't be blocked completely.
I doubt a router setting would totally block things. Perhaps slow it down but not entire block

Best use BitTorrents overnight or EE will slow your connection down to a crawl slower than dial-up. frown
