Port foward checker says Error: port not open, but I am dloading slow


Recommended Posts

Hello, first time user and very green!

I went through the portforward.com tutorial and set up port forwarding and started a 'torrent'. I first off checked to see if port forwarding was open for my specified port through the Utorrent port checker and it said that the port was not open. However, I seem to be downloading my 'program/torrent' albeit very slowly. I am confused should I be able to download this torrent in utorrent if that port is not open?

Thanks in advance,

Also new on torrents.

Went to PortForwarding found my router Zyxel Prestige600HW61 everything is fine until I got the page where I need to insert Password only (not asking for username). I've tried: blank, admin, 1234 but none of them work. Any known trick to guess the password so I can set the port forwarding?

Without the port forwarding option I still can download but very slow. The red button on the application status bar is telling me: Not connectable. A firewall/router is limiting the amount of traffic. You need to open a port so others can connect to you.

Any suggestions on how to fix this will be appreciated.

thanks a lot
