What I don't understand is the fact that this seems to limit download
speed, rather than upload speed.  I'm behind an Internet "gateway", but
my upload speed still manages to saturate my link.  My download speed,
OTOH, seems to consistently run at about half of my upload speed.

Anybody got an explanation for this phenomenon?

If your ports aren't open, then you're only getting data from people that you connect to, as opposed to data from people you connect to, and people who connect to you.

I'm sure that's not the whole reason, but that's part of it.
