Its simple. I had been downloading a file for 2 hours at an average of 15k even while I was uploading @40k.

I uninstalled bittornado and installed BitComet and now these are my stats after 2minutes:

Avg Down: 75k - Avg Up: 30k

To me that's enough of a good reason to switch.

I had f*cked around with the port forwarding and all that crap and nothing worked, still had the yellow light. This seems to be the ultimate answer to my problem.

Later.

If BitTornado was uploading at 40 KB/sec...and you didn't decrease that to a max of 30 KB/sec, then it wasn't a fair test.

Uploading too fast CHOKES (in multiple senses of the word) download speeds. Both uploads and downloads send out little replies saying in effect: "send more", "last packet corrupt, resend", "slow down", "etc".

If you don't have spare upload bandwidth, then your downloads won't be able to sustain high speeds as your connection can't sustain replies BACK to the downloader to "send more!" in a timely manner.
