Port Forwarding Not Working....


Recommended Posts

I'm getting rather frustrated and I honestly have no idea what to do. Here's the entire gig.

Within the last few weeks, I made a gaming rig. With that gaming rig, I installed Windows Vista Home Premium. I installed uTorrent onto the computer and I've had serious problems with the stupid thing. I've re-installed the network drivers, installed the Vista patch, quadruple-checked my port forwarding a dozen times, turned on (and back off) UPnP, triple-checked the Speed Issues thread, and power-cycled my modem, network, and router a half a dozen times, and I've gotten absolutely nowhere. I've checked the Motorola SURFboard thread, but I don't think this is the case. I never had this problem before with my XP computer, not to mention I've power-cycled it a ton of times and changed my IP address to another IP (And to no avail). I've checked and reset all of the upload recommended settings, but made no difference. Hell I'm uploading about twice to three times as much as I'm downloading!! _._ I've also double-checked the gargantuan-sized FAQ page.

I've disabled DHT and NAT-PMP, which helped a tad, but obviously didn't open the port. My upload settings are xx/512kb

My network looks like this:

Motorola SURFboard SB5100



Smoothwall (Just to make sure that it wasn't my Smoothwall, I completely wiped my harddrive and reinstalled the Smoothwall OS, but it made no difference at all).



Linksys WRT54G router (Motified firmware to DD-WRT v24)




My computer is equipped with:

Phenom II X4 3 GHz Quad core processor

4 Gb DDR2 Corsair RAM

GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 AMD Motherboard which has an onboard LAN Realtek 8111C (10/100/1000 Mbps)

And my firewall software is COMODO Internet Security (Which I configured with this post's settings, but to no avail). I also have AVG Free edition installed, but that doesn't do anything to the firewall. And yes I have disabled the pathetic Windows Firewall.

Again, I'm VERY, VERY sure it's not my router or my Smoothwall, otherwise I would've had difficulties with my XP machine and P2P. I'm beginning to think it's the network driver....

Okay, I can't think of any other information to give now. Help please? Before I go bomb the Microsoft building and blame Vista for my P2P problems.

Any support would be appreciated.
