hey guys, i have pretty much exactly the same problem as nemesis, and have had it for a while now, here's the breakout:

-Running Windows Vista Home Premium, D-link DI-524

-I have set my static ip correctly (internet works still)

-I have forwarded ports throught the router, and have done that exactly as the guide says (it really isnt that complicated) don't think the problem is here.

-I'm a "CableRocket" customer, though im sure they are owned by some larger company...

-I have forwarded the ports, and the program to my vista firewall, again pretty basic.

-With all this done, U-torrent will connect to peers/seeds but downloads will trickle in at a random 0.1kbs here and there. And the port check shows the port is still blocked, is there anything else in vista that might block it? Also I was under the impression that cable modems did not act like routers, (I have a Motorola Surfboard Modem) Could this be what is blocking it?

Sorry for the long post, trying to give as much info as possible.
