Cant seem to get port to forward


Recommended Posts

I have Windows Vista Home with Trendnet TEW-639GR Router. My ISP is Charter Communications and I am using their modem, Ambit U10C018. I also have Norton 360. I have done everything that I know to do including:

- Set up static internal IP

- Confirm IP is being utilized

- Select a port to use outside of DHCP range.

- Turn off Windows Firewall

- Forward port in Norton (Settings, Firewall, Traffic Rules, enable)

- Forward port in router (It is enabled)

No matter what, the icon at the bottom of Utorrent is red and says "Listen Error - You should change the listen port".

I have changed the port numerous times. I have rebooted numerous times. BUT IT IS STILL THE SAME!

I am able to download torrents but it is slow, about 2kbs to 200 kbs (on rare occasion) . I just did a speed test and I am at 18.14 Mbps download and 1.93 Mbps upload.

I appreciate your help but I am going a bit crazy with this!!

Listen port error = firewall program interference or another program using the port, give the random button a go. Is your modem just a modem? Seems like it, but I only did a quick search.

- Select a port to use outside of DHCP range.

You pick an IP ADDRESS outside your DHCP range, not port..

I also have Norton 360.

You'd be doing your computer a huge favor if you used this... http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
