Hi Guys,

Iv had a good search through the forum and couldnt find any info for my problem.

I have a problem uploading with utorrent.

I have spent days going through info on port forwarding to try and get a port opened up so others can connect with me and i can upload to them.

If i disable my internet security and enable the DMZ in the router the port checks still tell me any selected port is closed.

Im now looking towards the ISP as the problem?
Thats where i came accross APN settings in another thread. Could this be the problem?
Where do i go to change them? (all the replys are like, yay, mean, thanks, but nothing on telling me how to change them lol)

Ill change ISP if i have to, but need to know if i can get it sorted with vodafone first.

Thanks heaps.

APN's are for Vodafone's GPRS/WCDMA network.


Is this what you are using or are you on a ADSL plan?

Thanks for the reply,

Ohh, no wonder id never heard of it before.

Im on ADSL.

Ok, so APN's are not the problem.

Is there anything else in the ISP part of things that could be causing the problem then?

It's highly unlike the ISP is the problem. It's almost certainly an issue with your router or firewall on your PC.

WHat are you using for your "internet security". If you have Vista or XP do you have the firewall enabled on that as well?

It goes like this:

From phone line to ADSL D-Link DSL-302G (the one ihug sent me on sign up).
Then from ADSL to Linksys wireless router WRT502G. (If i dont use the wireless and hard wire to ADSL its still the same)
Internet security is Trent Micro 2008 (i turn it off it makes no difference)

The laptop computer is XP and the windows firewall is turned off.

Iv tried portforwarding both the Linksys and D-link, then both by them selves. Makes no difference. Could i be missing something in this precess?

Static ip is 192.168.1.100
Tried various ports high and low.

If someone can figure this out ill give ya $20 Laughing

Is the 302G set to bridge mode or do you have HDCP and NAT disabled in the Linksys? You could have double NAT occuring..

Ahh,

There are two NAT rules,
And im not sure about the bridging.

Here is a picture of what the NAT stuff looks like in the D-Link

If i hardwire into the 302G so discard the Linksys, the problem is still there.

Im still looking for HDCP and NAT settings in the Linksys.

Ill get a picture of the bridge settings in the 302G if that helps.

Thanks.
