“Global Maximum number of connections” is an option that decides the maximum number of connections that the torrent client could make with the P2P server. Setting it to very high value won’t increase the downloading speed much, but for 256 kbps you can have it around 120-150.

“Number of upload slots per torrent” decides the maximum peers that the client is going to upload for any P2P server. having it very low can affect your downloading speed but for 256 kbps you can have could be between 3-5.
