SPants Posted March 28, 2007 Report Share Posted March 28, 2007 "APPEAR?" Well, is it, or isn't it? I don't understand the subjective nature of this test...or is this just a language thing?I'm not raising this to be picky, though. In my use, I see no consistency between this port-forwarding test-result and whether I am able to upload/download. Right now, my d/l is almost nil (say 2kB/s) but upload is humming along at 40kB/s. Yet the port-forwarding test says I...what, /might/ (?)...not have an open port. Is there some reason the port-forwarding test should not reflect uploading capability?So with absolutely no changes in configuration in the last few days--no shutdowns, no nuthin'--why did my "port forwarding" test result change from "appearing" to be open...to NOT? And does this matter, really?A Linksys WRTG54 (v6) is serving this laptop. Likely I don't fully understand port-forwarding (and hate utorrent's referral to for-pay software to do this), but I long ago set my utorrent port to enabled, just working from the Linksys router control page. This has worked for much uploading and downloading, but lately I have to question performance. Are there now tweaks for v6 that I should know about?--'pants Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
