Port Forwarding problem


Recommended Posts

our previous modem was struck by lightening. so it died. It was a 2wire 2700 HG-D. we called qwest and they sent us a new one. however the new one is a 2wire 2701 HG-D so we got it up and running and we are browsing the internet like normal. I then attempted to forward a port through the router for utorrent. but this failed no matter what port I use it always gets an error after I test it. I am running windows vista premium home. and I have unblocked it from the firewall. and the only other thing I can think of is that avast antivirus is blocking it. However, 2 days ago when I had my old router it was getting through just fine. so I am guessing it has something to do with the new router. my speeds max out at 30kbs instead of the 100kbs I used to get. on my old router I forwarded the port porperly however I am not sure if I ever got the green light at the bottom of the screen. thanks ahead of time for any suggestions
