I do have wireless router, that I would have to open up some ports,
and port forward them to my laptop

what your saying is, not to use 6881 - 6999 (as open ports) but use
46500 as the only open port for torrent?

What about the tracker it needs port 4444 open? (according to 
settings )ktorrent
I don't have this UPnP plugin installed, should I ?
will I have to set the wireless router back to normal (closing port forward ),
and just use this...? ( have a 15MB connection ) got only 86 KB/s downloads...
that not good...slow (very slow)

Thank You.
