Yellow Caution/UPnP Mapping Problem


Recommended Posts

First, here is my setup:

Windows XP Pro SP2

Windows Firewall

uTorrent 1.6

Router: Linksys WRT54G

Connection 245/570 kbps (from dslreports/speedtest)

the internet connection is through my university's dorms (they connect to a cogeco dedicated cable line)

there is limited websense on the network to block pr0n and gambling sites

static ip of

router address of

subnet mask

dns servers

uTorrent set to use port 1720

UPnP is enabled, as is windows firewall exception adding

port 1720 is set as an exception on windows firewall

ports 1000-5000 are open for both protocols on router, anonymous traffic is allowed

logger says:

[00:20:34] UPnP: Discovered new device:

[00:20:34] UPnP: ERROR 718 mapping port 1720 ->

[00:20:42] Unable to map UPnP Port.

i'm getting abysmal download and upload speeds, even on well seeded torrents, such as openoffice

(abysmal being <0.5 kB/s)

direct downloads from websites get 20-35k download speeds (on average)

i've read all the tutorials that i could find on this site, along with various other posts about similar problems...

if anybody could help me with this, i would be very grateful.
