    I use a couple file-sharing programs I have my port settings at the default level
    Are there any advantages to increasing –decreasing these settings?
    thanks

    There are advantages to changing them. I know that some ISPs throttle Bit Torrent ports 6881-6889, and a few might block them altogether. The situation might be the same for eDonkey ... so yes, if you can change them, you should.
