I've been using BitTornado to download torrents on my new PC and it was working perfectly until a few days ago. From one day to the next it stopped working and gives the error "Couldn't listen - unable to forward port via UPnP." I tried to disable UPnP in BitTornado and now I can download but the speeds are insanely slow (~1 KB/s) and the indicator light stays yellow and never goes to green (indicating a firewall may be in the way).

I did a search for that error and followed the instructions exactly from http://www.portforward.com/english/routers.../BitTornado.htm (Basically it told me to disable UPnP, narrow the ports to 10000 - 10010 and manually forward those ports). This still did not increase speeds. Even on a popular torrent the max I got was 20kb/s whereas before I use to get well over 100 kb/s.

I'm not too savvy with this networking stuff. I have a D-Link router (EBR-2310) and Norton Internet Security installed on my Windows 7 system. Can someone please help me get back to fast speeds?
