Hi! I have turned off the firewall by going to my router page http://192.168.1.1/. I would like to know the adverse as well as the positives of this. Primarily, I was hoping that this would help me get faster upload and download speeds with Vuze (Azureus). Pl explain this as if its a child on the other side. I am a novice. Since i keep getting banned from torrent sites that require registration as I am unable to connect and seed properly after downloading. Please help.

If you need firewall depends only on you and on your security needs. If you have router's firewall turned off, you might have another firewall on your PC turned on. Your topic is very wide so I will give you some links about simple firewall info:
