Since I've installed ZA firewall BitComet has been crippled (it usually downloads at around 70-80kb/sec max.) it's max DL rate is now around 10kb/sec.
1. Initially, I tinkered with ZA setup to see if BitComet was not trusted/authorised to access the web but everything that the ZA control panel showed me was positive i.e. confirming to me that BC had full access to the web.
2. In desperation I uninstalled ZA which did not fix the problem.
3. I have resorted to restoring my PC to an earlier point, pre-ZA - still no joy.
4. I have DL'ed most recent BC - still no result.
I guess ZA has somehow blocked the required ports that BC used to use, and now I'm left with rubbish DL speeds. Please help!
***I have Windows XP SP2. I access the web via a wireless HSDPA plug'n'play USB modem by Huawei. I do not have a router or internal modem***
Any comments gratefully received
