valedor Posted January 21, 2008 Report Share Posted January 21, 2008 hey there!i've been desperately looking for a solution to "port forwarding". The website you suggested on http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=5577 was useful, eventhough it didn't solve it all though.i found your thread, and i think u¡d understand me.My ISP gave me a Motorola Surf board SB5100 Cable Modem (not a wireless router). I recieved afterwards as a gift from my bestfriend, a Netgear MR814v2 wireless router, which is not distributed by the ISP which firstly gave me the Cable Modem, but bought somewhere in a PC store. I connected the Netgear Router to the Motorola cable modem to go wirlessly-online. I activated a WEP codeas a security measure.The settings of my Internet connection are set to default, i mean, when i open the properties of the TCP/IP protocol, it's set to "get automaticly an IP adress" as well as "get automaticly the DNS server adress".When i run "cmd" i'm shown the ip adress, the subnet mask... etc alright. BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE DNS SERVER, WHICH IS IDENTICAL TO THE DEFAULT GATEWAY. i know i'm supposed to check my router's status, there i found again only one DNS server. After i type in the computer's TCP/IP settings (not in my router's IP settings) the the static IP adress (generated following the steps at portforwarding.com), the subnet mask, the Default gateway and finally the only DNS server i found at my router's status entry (leaving the alternative DNS server empty), i click ok ok ok and then... when i run the port forwarding test, it says that my port is still not open and i can't download any torrent over 10kbps on my 2048 kbps connection.U know why is this? shall i type in all the static IP adress, subnet mask, etc. in the router's settings instead of in my computer's TCP/IP settings? shall i stop using the router and go back in time and connect with only the cable modem, and make the changes on it?plase help me out man, i'd really appreciate your help.thanks a lot.
