Slevin73 Posted December 22, 2008 Report Share Posted December 22, 2008 Hello, I am having some kind of trouble with uTorrent.I got a 10Mbit/s connection (Very fast) but I can only download at 70Kb/s with 1538 seeds. My current network is set like this: I got one router (Linksys WRT54G) connected into the modem, and this computer is connected into the router. I doubt my connection is the source of the problem. Also, I get this little yellow triangle in the bottom and sometimes it becomes a red circle. I tried Port Forwarding, and I did as portforward.com told me (I found my router in the list and followed step-by-step), but without success, it stays yellow or red. Now I played with all the settings, re-booted, erased settings.dat and settings.dat.old from %appdata%/uTorrent, tried many many different stuff, but nothing changed. I also tried turning off the firewall as suggested, still nothing changed. I do have the exceptions turned in the Firewall. I also got Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition and Avast on, I don't know if they have P2P protections or firewalls that could be blocking the torrents. The torrents ARE downloading, but at less than 100kb/s, which kills me since I got that many seeders and that 10Mbit/s connection. I also got alot of free Hard Drive space. I did the basic stuff like changing the values in the preferences and etc, but I still get this cr*ppy speed. I also checked this forum, found this: http://utorrent.com/faq.php#Special_note_for_users_with_Linksys_WRT54G_GL_GS_routersBut it doesn't apply to me, since I have FirmWare v8 (Firmware Version: 8.2.03 build 008, Nov. 8, 2007)When I test to see if the port is forwarded correctly (In the Speed Guide window) I get this message: Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.Checking port 16881 on 192.168.1.xx...Error! Port 16881 does not appear to be open.Please see www.portforward.com for more information about how to map a port.Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com (220.127.116.11) in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website's IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5).I run the following if it can help:uTorrent build 1.8.1Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Editionavast!Linksys WRT54G Router (Firmware Version: 8.2.03 build 008, Nov. 8, 2007)Windows XP SP3Pentium 4 CPU PrescottEVGA 8800GT3Gb RAM640Gb HDDIntel D915GEV motherboardIf you could just send me a to-do list or a to-check list, it would really help. I'm not too familliar with the Network settings and terms, so please bare with me. Also, if possible add pictures, because my Windows is in french, I can do the translation, but sometimes the french is kind of different or isn't exact translation.Any help would be appreciated, or you can mail me at Daviscooper2k3@hotmail.comThanks,Slevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
