Bittorrent is a give-and-take system, that is, the more you share, the faster you're able to download. So, you have to set your router's firewall to allow your machine to act as a server. Sitting behind a firewall, your machine is blocked from sending, so you get very little bandwidth in return from Bittorrent.

There are a number of tutorials for configuring your firewall (Google the terms: Configure, Firewall, Bittorrent). Here's an example.
