Hi, I just upgraded my firmware to tomato on my linksys wrt54gl router. Love the upgrade, especially the boost in the wifi signal.

Everything works well, except for utorrent. I've googled & tried the suggestions but nothing seems to work for me. Max I can get is about 25 kB/s down, I'm usually up around 3-400 or so.

The utorrent test to see if the port if forwarded properly, says it is not. It was ok on my belkin modem/router (which I used up until today).

My modem is a d-link dsl-502t. I have disabled the firewall in there.

I've restarted my computer, the modem, utorrent & the router after changing settings. I've changed the port, still no joy.

I'm not sure what else to try. Does anyone have any suggestions? I suspect it's something to do with the settings on the modem, but I can't find anything that says what to change there. When I did some mucking around, my whole internet connection dropped so I set it back again.

I've uploaded some pics of my settings both in the router and the modem.

Thanks.

You have DHCP enabled on both devices. It should only be enabled on one

What IP range is your PC actually receiving?

Oops, didn't notice that. I've disabled it on the modem, but still no joy with utorrent.

I've assigned all the computers on my network a static ip address, in the 192.168.1.xxx range. Seems to work ok for surfing.

Without seeing more of the settings I'm guessing you have some double NAT issues.

Is the d-link in bridge mode?

Well, the help says that that setting should be under WAN, but I can't see it, and I've had a look at every setting on there, so I can't tell if it's in bridge mode or not.

If you'd like to see other settings, I can post a pic, I just need to know what you need to see, thanks.

Sounds like double NAT.  Enable ppoa half bridge (sometimes called ip extension) in the dlink if it supports it.  However I suspect that model doesn't support that feature.

In that case you need to forward the port from the dlink to the wrt54, then from the wrt54 to your machine.

Pretty sure the DSL-502 doesn't support half bridge mode. If it supports DMZ (demilitarised zone) set that up to refer to the Tomato router. If it doesn't, you'll have to forward the ports twice, as mentioned before. You're probably best getting a newer ADSL router. Can probably get a RTA1320 or something similar off trademe for $10.

I am not familiar with your devices but I have a similar setup as below, I suggest setting it up statically with no DHCP anywhere.

PC: 192.168.1.2 (LAN): -------> (LAN) Router: 192.168.1.1 (WAN): -------> (LAN) Modem: 10.1.1.1

Forward the uTorrent port from the modem to the router and from the router to PC:

Port: "55667" forwarded from 10.1.1.1 to 192.168.1.1
Port: "55667" forwarded from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2


Hope this helps!

:)
