hey, so im downloading a file, and it says that theres 91 seeds and 51 peers in the swarm, why am i only connecting to 4 seens and 1 peer, and only getting 2.5kb/s on average? i ran a speed test to see how fast my internet was and got 9387kb/s down, and 5037kb/s up from speedtest.net. the only program i am running is Vuze. any ideas on what the problem is?

Did you forward a port? Do you have a NAT problem?

Without access to the network infrastructure, there's not really much that can be done.
Only tunnelling services or HTTP encapsulation services such as YourFreedom (that's not an endorsement of the technology or the company) have proven a somewhat-viable workaround in heavily restricted networks such as yours.
