Sigh, yellow light problems


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I get the yellow light. My download seems to max out at 20kB/s and is frequently lower than that. My upload can max out if I allow it to, so there don't seem to be issues with that. Anyhow, here's the thing. When I use utorrent to check if my port is forwarded properly, it tells me that it isn't. But I don't have a router. How does that work? I've added the port I'm currently using to exceptions for Windows XP firewall, along with uTorrent.exe itself, but the issue is still here. I do not have any other firewall, the XP one what I've got. I actually tried disabling it to see if that would affect my speed at all, but it made no difference.

edit: The yellow appears to have switched to red now.

Hmm, I'm actually not entirely sure of how my connection is set up. I am in a dorm room at a university, so I just plug my ethernet cable into the wall.

Running ipconfig gives me:

IP Address: 142.66.**.***

Subnet Mask: 255.255.***.*

Default gateway: 142.66.**.*

I hope this is what you were looking for. Perhaps the LAN is intentionally set up in a way to inhibit p2p traffic?

I don't have any trouble connecting to FTP servers, or to computer game servers.

I don't mean connecting to them... I mean running one YOURSELF, to see if anything can work as a server on your PC.

Anyway, I don't see any software that could potentially act as a firewall on your system.

Just for the hell of it, re-enable the Windows firewall, disable the add to windows firewall exceptions, restart ut, reenable it, then restart ut again.

Sorry, misunderstood you there. I just configured an ftp server, and it seems that the people I've asked to try to connect to it are just timing out. The Gene6 FTP server test was telling me something about a "private IP", but now it can't seem to find me either.

I just tried what you recommended, but it didn't work. It seems to have changed the red light back to a yellow one again, though that could very well revert back to red.

Thanks a bunch for the help, by the way.

Just checked in with one, he seems to have issues with torrents as well. It sounds likely that the University has some sort of NAT set up then, which I assume would mean I would have to bring up the issue with them?

edit: If I try to ping google through the command prompt, I get "Reply from 142.66.xx.1: Destination net unreachable.", where the IP is the same as mine though I have a 3 digit number at the end, rather than a 1. So it looks like something shortly along the line is in place to prevent me from doing things. That given IP address appears to correspond to my Default Gateway.
