Rookie Question:


Recommended Posts

--I skimmed,but did not read every word of the relevant tutorial posts.I have a static address,have the firewall down,have the "connections" box set correctly,and all that.

--On the advice of another poster,in another question,I removed my Zone Alarm Free Firewall. The same low speed and the same yellow light reading remained.

--Finally,my rookie question:

--The upper right hand read of the Zone Alarm page told me that "utorrent.exe is listening to (the correct numbered) the port.

--Does that tell me that the port is working properly and that the problem might be with my router (Embarq 600R ADSL router) or Embarq?


Thank you.

Yes,I forwarded the port.

Yes,I un installed the firewall.

Someplace in the tutorials,I saw a list of questionable moda and routers;mine is among those.

What I was wondering,and did not say properly,is could the connection have completed on some parallel circuit,and the wall read it as the correct port? As the wall,before I un installed it,allowed the port through and identified it as the correct one,is there a narrow place in the pipeline? Is that narrow place my router or isp or both?

I'll try to get up to speed,but this is all new to me.


Thank you.
