Please help, I'm trying to use Utorrent. The problem is, that it wont connect to download anything. I'm not sure what to do, when it comes to forwarding the ports, so that my Utorrent can connect. I've been told that this will make it fatser to, is this true? Thanks for your time.

Port forwarding is down by configuring your router. All routers do this a bit differently from each other. You need to know the port number(s) you need to forward. Start here and then search Google for "utorrent port forward":

This is from the uTorrent FAQ page:

What ports should I use for µTorrent?

It is generally recommended to not use any port in the range 6881-6889. µTorrent only uses one port, however, so you only need to forward one. It is best to use a port number above 10000.

You'll probably be fine choosing any port between 10000 and 60000.
A Google search about this brings up alot of results. Check out the links if you want to learn more.
