OK...so I am not new to Torrents but it took me all day to get the Tab to even begin to download a torrent
Of course I got a client. But whenever I clicked on a "download now" button on isohunt or elsewhere
it just wouldnt do anything. Eventually I found some torrents sites that would react to a press of the
download button. But still nothing was showing up in my client as being downloaded.

I finally got something to show up but it hasnt actually downloaded anything...sits at zero %.
According to the torrents site there were 100's of seeders and leechers...but the client says there are
zero.

anybody know what the deal is?

I am doing this all on 3g or 4g...I forget but it seems there should be some progress right?

Oh, if it makes any difference I am in Japan.

I don't think that is it. I had the same issue with torrents not downloading. Other files download fine, and I have no issues downloading torrents on my other computers. I've tried the standard browser as well as Dophin and Dolphin HD.

I'm currently a member of demonoid & it works fine with ttorrent lite ... I have no complaints what so ever it works seamlessly. My Galaxy tab freaking rocks.

I'm also on Demonoid, so I'll give Torrent Lite a try, though O often us Nyaa as well since I collect Doujinshi (self produced amateur content).
