I was getting the same speeds you are experiencing until I changed
from Bittorrent to Azureus and checked the Azureus FAQ regarding the
yellow status icon. Found that I need to change the UPnP setting on my
router. If you are using a router with NAT enabled make sure that UPnP
is enabled.  Instead of 6-20 kB/sec I am now observing 200-220 kB/sec.
