MaxpAyne Posted October 14, 2006 Report Share Posted October 14, 2006 I have been trying to sort out the cause of the slow speeds that I have got with my Netgear DG834 modem/router. I have followed the guide to sorting the port forwarding on http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Netgear/DG834/Utorrent.htm . I have tried testing to see whether the ports are open using the self testing in the speed test guide in utorrent, however that keeps saying the ports are not open. I have checked many times that I have followed the port forward instructions, but it just doesn't seem to work. I still recieve really low speeds, in the range of 5-20 kB/s, and the status light is in the yellow warning after utorrent is started, and goes red some time later.I know that the problem is the router, as I have tried connecting directly through a D-Link DSL 200, and that has no problems, speeds were 50+ kB/s and light was always green.My ISP is Pipex, and max line speed is 8Mbps (apparently)Thanks in advance for any help Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
