Download help: Going slow

Seems I need to change the option on my settings to "yes" to sharing downloads or whatever, I said no when I first downloaded Bittorent, and my downloading rate is terrible. Can anyone tell me how to change it to yes on sharing downloads?

When you download using bittorrent, you automatically start uploading chunks that you have already downloaded. Your download speed is proportional to your upload speed, although other factors, such as how many seeds there are, whether or not you have a firewall, etc affect your download speed. Also, you can try to cap your upload to 75% of your total upload bandwidth for better downloading performance.

I understand that, but I me selecting no on file sharing is my biggest problem it seems, which I saw on the FAQ at the bittorrent home page. I remember when I first downloaded bittorent I chose this option, but am unsure on how to change it.

I am not aware of any bittorrent client that gives you the choice you said you made. What client are you using?
