Many ISP's block the most commonly used BitTorrent ports. You need to change the port number on which BitComet is listening. You'll then need to forward the appropriate port through your router.
I use Azureus for my torrents and have it listening on port 58881. I can't tell you where to find this setting in BitComet, as I've never used it.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

What is the exact make / model of the router?

It should be indicated by a label on the underside.

Also, have you set up a static IP address?

It seems by the make / model of your router you don't need to configure a static ip address as the router defines your connection by identifying your pc.

I was going to refer you to the page pibelman has linked you to.

When you start a torrent download click on peers in the bottom left of the bitcomet window. Do you get connections that show both remote and local? If you do that means that the port forwarding is working. I've noticed sometimes bitcomet will give the orange light when it is working fine.

If it is any consolation I've never noticed a significant speed increase with port forwarding, although I use bitcomet to download the latest linux distros, so there are always plenty of seeds anyway.

I had a problem with ftp 'ing. I turned off windows firewall, then went into advanced settings to allow the blocked port.

Try using a port scanner, might give you more info
