if Bit Tornado says "couldn't listen- unable to foward port via UPnP" then what you do is go under "Pref" and then under the settings for the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) just disable it, downside is though, if you have devices that are plug and play and are connected thru the network, they kinda don't "plug and play"
Now to my problem, as most ppl have asked throughout the forum, I have the following:
Router: Netgear WGR614 v6
Modem: Speedstream 5100
ISP: SBC Yahoo DSL
Max Transfer Rate: 1.5mbps download ~ 384kbps upload
OS: Windows XP Home Edition + SP2
Firewall: SP2 (disabled)
Torrent Software: BitTornado
Norton Systemworks + Ad-Aware + S&D Spybot
*I am currently hardwired
Just like most people i have opened my ports 10,000 to 60,000. This is based on the Pref of BitTornado using that range.
I just did this like 15 mins ago, now once i restarted BitTornado, everything is green thus far, and the download rate is steadily increasing to somewhat reasonable levels. I hope that this solves my problem, and for anyone else. Just let the BitTornado window stay open for a while don't get impatient. *note i am also just downloading 2 things simutaneously*
I guess check what your port range is on the program you wish to run, and then add it into the port forwarding in your router.
What I have learned is that the Speedstream modems SUCK!!!
They are good for a single PC, but once run thru a router, it is like shit. Unfortunately SBC does not off much on variety of modems, the only other one is a 2Wire modem/router, which SUCKS ASS!!!!! *pardon the language*
I traditionally do like 8 downloads at a time and max out my d/l rate, but well i ran out of stuff to download, as I am typing, im checking my d/l rate and it's like 25kbps+ *good for me
I think that this Netgear router is more somewhat user friendly compared to Linksys WRT54G v4. As many features they gave to access, it was more of a pain in the ass to deal with, plus it took up more desk space the way it is designed.
is a good site, but not for the Netgear WGR614, because it doesn't list it.
What i did before and shouldn't have done was contact my ISP *SBC Yahoo* and consult them [damn stupid outsourced tech support] First off everytime i try to call, their system does a check by doing a test on your modem, it basically shot my internet down. I contacted them to see if they have any different modems to offer, they didn't even listen, all they did was repeat shit over n over, *it sounded like they were reading it from a manual*
Now that I am done with my ranting good luck to the rest of ya
*Make friends with a tech, they'll save ur downloading ass*
