After reading around and becoming more and more confused I've found myself here needing the same help as others.
Up until not long ago I was using utorrent without any issues and then I started getting the dredded red dot. After looking around I surmised my issue was due to my 'old' dlink 524 router, so I went out and purchased a linksys wrt54g router. After playing around with things today I now find myself here asking for help.
I have set-up in my pc a static address and I know my router works fine. I've set up to port forward on both the router and my modem but somewhere along the line all is not well.
I'm certain the issue is with my modem , the address I use to get to this is 10.1.1.1 (I'm with AAPT) , the address I use to get to my router is 192.168.1.1. By entering my modem settings I've gone advanced>virtual server and used LAN IP as 10.1.1.2 to open a port. My PC static IP is 192.168.1.50 and I've opened a port with the WRT54G using this address.
Can someone guide a lost , helpless fool?
spyware posted this in another thread but I haven't a clue what it means
The WAN interface on Linksys needs a static IP (on same subnet as 502T LAN interface). The LAN interface of the 502T connects to WAN interface of Linksys. Port forward rule on 502T points to this WAN interface IP address.
To summarise. Port forward rule on 502T points to WAN interface IP address on Linksys and port forward rule on Linksys points to PC IP address (running uTorrent). So both the PC and Linksys WAN interface need static addresses.
P.S. All above assumes that you have connected the 502T to WAN interface of the linksys, and hence your port forward rule in the Linksys, but maybe you connected the 502T to the Linksys LAN interface in which case you don't need any port forward rule in the Linksys as it is not doing any routing. Also the above port forward would have to be modified.
