Few connectability and speed questions.


Recommended Posts

Linksys WRTG54 router

Qwest M1000 modem: firewall disabled, routing disabled

Port Checker: Port 54828 does not appear to be open.

Speed test: 2.0 Mb/s D/L, 0.5 Mb/s UL

400+ kB/s when D/L'ing slackware

Windows XP SP2

Guides tried: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992


I've been trying to fix my connection for a bit now and I have tried the guides here. I've done the port forwarding, made exceptions in my firewall and any suggestions written in other threads. I also checked my ISP and it isn't listed as one that throttles P2P and I've made certain the modem isn't acting as a second router. Also made sure to have a static IP as suggested. The connectable icon has gone from mostly yellow and sometimes green to mostly red. Can't really tell if it has limited my speed as my UL is going at the suggested max and my DL varies. Any suggestions to fix the connection?

Edit: I am unsure as to whether I should move this to the Speed section, just say so I need to.

The ip I'm using is which I attained when I ran the ipconfig in command.

The Speed Guide settings are:

Connection Type: xx/512k

UL Limit: 47 kb/s UL Slots: 4

Connections (per torrent): 90 Connections (global): 250

Max Active: 3 Max Active DL's: 2

Chances are, that IP is within the router's DHCP range -- which is a bad thing. You'll need to double-check that, though. At any rate, you need to find out what your router's DHCP range is, then set your static IP to be outside of it (so if the range is -, an IP like would be considered as "outside" the range).

I'm not sure how to find the exact DHCP range but from looking at the router config, it says the DHCP server starts at and allows for 50 users. So should I just use anything above

Sorry for the erratic responses but the site keeps dropping out for me. The new IP being used is and the port has been forwarded for the IP. The port checker in the Speed Guide stills says it isn't forwarded and the connectalbe icon is yellow.

The personal firewall on my laptop is the one included in Norton Internet Security 2009. The settings for it have an exception for uTorrent. I'm not sure what the firewall on the router is but it is allowing Anonymous Internet Requests. The firewall on the Actiontec M1000 modem is disabled.

Just for clarification, when you say that routing has been disabled on the Actiontec, you mean that you've set it to bridge mode (or some equivalent), right?

Can you try uninstalling NIS 2009 temporarily (enable Windows Firewall, and let µTorrent create an exception for it) to see if the problem persists? If so, can you try connecting the computer directly to the modem to see if the problem then persists?

The Actiontec modem being used needs a separate module to act as a router and I don't have the module so the function is unusable. I have uninstalled NIS and let Utor go through the windows firewall (I only got NIS 1 week ago and had mostly yellow icon before as well) and the icon is the same. The same can be said with a direct connection to the modem, no speed increase or icon status change.

It just says "No incoming connections" and I haven't changed the net.bind_ip or net.outgoing_ip or recalled it as a suggestion in any of the guides I've tried.

Edit: The status icon changed to green as I submitted the response, it does this sometimes but always returns to yellow after a few minutes.

Switching between green and yellow isn't a problem, and should be considered normal. What I'm most curious about is why the port checker telling you that the port is closed, and yet, µTorrent is seeing an incoming connection (otherwise, there would be no way for the light to turn green).

If the IP address shown in the port checker is of the form w.x.y.z, what is the y.z portion of the IP?

Heh, I asked for y.z so that you wouldn't have to give your whole IP. At any rate, that rules out proxy servers being an issue. Are you using PeerGuardian?


What does this site report?

I'm running out of ideas as to what could be the problem here, unfortunately :\ The only consolation I can give is (as mentioned above) that the fact that µTorrent's network status light is even turning green indicates that you can receive incoming connections, meaning the port likely is open.

Sorry about that, I am using PG2 but I'm fairly certain uTorrent has an allowance. canyouseeme.org gives me this:

Error: I could not see your service on 224.194 on port (54828)

Reason: Connection refused.

The PFPortChecker program also says the port is not open.

Last ditch effort here, as I'm fresh out of ideas...

a) get HijackThis from trendsecure.com, run it, view the log, and post the contents here

B) get Process Explorer from sysinternals.com, run it, Ctrl+D (to show the lower DLL pane), select the µTorrent process from the list, Ctrl+S (and save the list somewhere you'll find easily -- like the Desktop), then post the contents of the saved process list in the .txt file here

(Get both)

The speeds I've gotten are fine and I'm satisfied with uTorrent as a whole, I just want others to be able to connect so I can share with others. I understand that there are others who need help as well and I appreciate the what you've done.
