He never stated that any of that was the case.

FreeDownloader has Firewall options as well as ability to simultaneously download from multiple mirror sites, break up downloads into packets for simul downloading, resume interrupted downloads, torrent support, etc., etc.
Any of which could help him speed up a download no matter where the bottleneck is.

sounds like azureus and a linksys router imo. log into your router's admin utility, give your computer a static ip address, open some ports for that IP, and then set azurues (or whatever bittorrent/download manager you might be using) to use those ports. Should resolve the firewall issue.
