I am using a linksys wireless g router (wrt54gs). I have no idea how to port forward. I think I understand changing the laptop ip to something besides 192.168.1.1 ! I disabled the Norton, Linksys, Windows XP SP2 firewalls. Still get yellow light? Someone please walk me through setting up the router. Thanks a lot for any help I receive!
Log into your router. It's best if you drop the DHCP coming off the router, change this to static IP(this is in network setup). This will help alot. Under network setup, change the default IP to something like 10.10.xxx.xxx, leave the subnetmask at 255.255.255.0. Give your computer an IP of 10.10.XXX.100 or such. You will need the DNS server address to set up your computer info under your TCP/IP.To get this number goto your status window, look towards the bottom should have DNS server address there.
After you set up router and TCP/IP info. Goto Applications & Gaming. Put in a name for the program 'Torrent' is what I use. In start put the beginning range for the ports that you will be using.next put the end of the range. Make sure you use TCP for protocol. In the IP address put the IP for your computer here and enable.Save settings.
Also, make sure that you change the password for your router.
Hope this helps
