Yellow Light? Try This:

Go to your Router Homepage, for Linksys this is default 192.168.1.1 default password: admin Once you are logged in:

1.) Click on "Advanced" Tab
2.) Click on "Forwarding" Tab
3.) Click on "Port Triggering" Button
4.) Type in Application Name: BitTorrent
5.) Under Trigger Port Range, type "6881-6889"
6.) Under Incoming Port Range type "6881-6889"
7.) Hit Apply

Now you are back to the Forwarding Page, follow the next 5 steps to finish:

1.) Type in the App Name, (i.e. BitTorrent)
2.) Type in the ports that you specified on the trigger tab (i.e. 6881-6889)
3.) Put a check mark on both Protocol TCP and Protocol UDP boxes
4.) Type in the ending digit(s) of your IP adress (see below about setting a Static IP if you need to)
5.) Throw a check mark in "Enable" and hit Apply

********************************************************************************************************
It helps to have a Static IP set for Step 4, to do this, here are two helpful websites:
For Windows XP: http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm
For Windows 98: http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-98.htm

Ignore what the person had written in for the Preferred and Alternate DNS server, just type in your router IP under Preferred.
********************************************************************************************************
If both Forwarding and Port Triggering are set correctly your light should go from that dreaded yellow to green instintaniously.

Hope this helps :)

As far as I know, bittorrent doesn't make any use of UDP in peer to peer communication, so only TCP has to be forwarded for bittorrent to work.

I just cleared out all the ports in my router and set everything back up again and now I have a green light again.

Original Problem

In the last 4 days my status light on my torrents has been yellow. I am using a linksys router and have not had any problems in the past getting a green light. I have also noticed a slow down in my download speeds. Nothing has changed on my system.

Windows XP
Shadows Experimental Tracker 5.8.11
I have the appropriate ports open on my router
Windows internal firewall is off

Has anyone gone into the advance features of XP?s firewall and opened the ports through there. Did it help?

Read your router manual !

It's often admin/admin or blank/admin.

can anyone tell me how to get a green light with a Linksys befsr41 version 2 Firmware 1.40.2. The port forwarding screen is much different from all the other befsr41 screens.

I did everything above but I still receive a yellow light. I can upload at about 12 k/s but download at around 3 k/s. On a good day, I might get up to 7 k/s.

I ran the connection checker torrent and it says:
"rejected by tracker - NAT check failed. Check for firewalls or port forwarding"

What should I do?

Go through the other tutorials and see if any of them help you fix your problem. Personally, I haven't ever used the port triggering function. I just use port forwarding and everything works fine.
