peacemaker898 Posted July 25, 2009 Report Share Posted July 25, 2009 Here is what I have going on.ISP: MetrocastMy computer (XP) -> DGS-2208 switch -> WRT350N router -> HT502 phone adapter -> SB5101 modem -> the internetThere are also three other computers going that same route and a laptop bypassing the switch, then following the same route, but, AFAIK, mine is the only one with a static IP. There is an option in my router's interface to change the "Internet Connection Type" to static IP, but I'm guessing that's different than just changing your computer to a static one, right? Am I supposed to change both? I don't want to mess up the connections the other four computers have, though.I've tried on many occasions to open a port, but was never successful. I always hear people saying on torrents, "Thanks, 1.5mb/s download speed!" I'm happy when I have 15kb/s...I followed to guide exactly for my router, but, when I test to port, the result is always the same: not open. I have uTorrent as an allow-all exception in my AVG firewall, but it still doesn't work, even if I disable the firewall altogether.I have no idea what might be wrong.Any help would be appreciated, and easy with the tech-speak, I don't have that much experience when it comes to networking.Thanks. Ps: What's wrong with this website? It's extremely hard to get anywhere without getting some kind of load error like 50x Internal Server Error, or a simple "page not found." I hope it works when I press submit! ...it didn't, good thing it saves posts if you just go back. I'll try again. Nope... "web page not available".... again..EDIT: There we go! ....haha, couldn't do the edit either. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
