les moore Posted July 29, 2009 Report Share Posted July 29, 2009 Had everything working fine for some time, when nearby lightning fried the modem and router (both on UPS). Router was replaced with exact same model/version, and the modem is still a Motorola surfboard, although I don't know if there was some kind of model change. The true weirdness is that I had no problems before.The problem now is that the connection is dropped every few hours. If I bypass the router it seems to work fine, so it seems it is router-based, and the connection is restored by power cycling the router. Linksys says everything is set up right, but it seems like with the original router we did some stuff in Windows (although nothing should have changed there).Here are the various stats, and changes I've made based on info in the forums:router: Linksys BEFSR41 v.4.3modem: Motorola surfboard SB5101Comcast cableWindows XP SP3Pentium 4, 1.9 GHzAvira antivirusfirewall and port forwarding works, port set in high part of rangeGlasnost test says there is no indication that the ISP is limiting BitTorrent traffic,although their main page suggests Comcast is blocking hostsin uTorrent, if I let it run free, I see maximum rates of around 130kB/s upload,but I have set to the conservative settings listed for 128kbits/s,which if kB is 8 x kbits would seem *really* conservative if I understand correctly:upload 22 (also alternate upload when not dl)global max conn 60max peers/torrent 35upload slots/torrent 3max active 2active downloads 1use additional upload slots uncheckednetwork status is greennet.max_halfopen *4bt.connect_speed *10peer.resolve_country falsebt.transp_disposition *5peer.lazy_bitfield trueDHT disabledUPnP disabledNAT-PMP disabledProtocol Encryption out forced/in not allowed (changed from enabled/allowed)Resolve IPs disabled (never would have found this - right-click in PEERS window/tab of a torrent)Anything that could be mentioned to Linksys?I would also consider ditching this router,are there any recommendations for a router that can handle lots of connections?(if that in fact is the problem).Would appreciate any suggestions. As it is, the P2P is not very useful unless I'm around to constantly monitor it and restore the connection. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
