Hello!

Here is a guide on how to setting up port forward on DSL 500T for uTorrent:
http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DSL-500T/Utorrent.htm

If you can't reach the router as described in the link above, than you need to contact whoever provided you with this router. If the router was provided by your ISP (internet service provider) than contact them directly asking how to access your router.

Hope this helps!

Iv got a BT home hub 2 cant get conections for utorrent even though opened firewalls


There are ISPs that block utorrent. I found this explanation of how to do port forwarding on the BT home hub, though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/Utorrent.htm
So, all I can suggest is to open the ports on your home hub as suggested above and to connect your computer straight to your home hub rather than to your CWR-854 (unless you actually have no such router and just picked that to ask the question under).
It is possible that someone has decided that you should not use torrents (they slow down everyone because they actually have the nerve to use the internet) and they are associated with thieves. Not to mention that there are tons of legit uses for them,
This could be someone in your ISP or your house. So do you have access to everything? You can poke around with telnet - can you access the ports on the other systems that utorrent accesses to make itself part of the network of systems that are downloading and sharing the torrent?
But if one knows the ports it is easy to block torrent.
If you have multiple routers that do nat, the home hub has to forward to your router, not to your system. So if your router is 192.168.3.12 and your system is 192.168.5.6, the BT home hub has to forward to the port on your router, on 192.168.3.12 , and your router has to forward to your system on 192.168.5.6. If the home hub tries to forward directly to your system (if you have multiple routers, which you might have because of the way you asked your question) then it won't work since your router hides 192.168.5.6.

TORRENTS DO NOT WORK


your ISP may have blocked the ports that torrents work on so in the application you use you need to change what ports it uses - also if you have a router your router may be blocking the out going or even incoming traffic on the port its specified to use so you may want to log into your router and unblock those.

utorrent is a good one for windows.

Hangs with Bittorrent


That is because you need to open a port on router with the same number assigned to your torrent client.

You need to check port number on bittorrent configuration, then access router control panel typing router IP on internet explorer address bar and configure the router to open the port.

Read the following articles.

I can't downoload by uTorrent with ports from 50000 to 65000....


Depending on your ISP, you may have been throttled. Try a different port or try µTorrent, it allows random port assignment on every boot.

Help with Static IP address configuration


no need to set static IP addresses for the PC, i have been using UTorrent client with a laptop and used the laptop on different network, just set your torrent port to be dynamic, or let the torrent client find an open port everytime you use it (it is always under network settings / preferences).

if you have other questions just let me know, i'd be more willing to help out.

Port Forwarding


First off, the have the wrong IP address set for the router. The 10.0.0.138 address they are shopwing you would be replaced by 192.168.0.1 (default for D-Link). You can always tell by going to the command prompt (start/run/cmd) then type "ipconfig". This will tell you the the default gateway (router) and the ip address of your computer. The 255.255.255.0 is your subnet mask. Now try following those very confusing directions.

In the D-link, forward ports in the DMZ or RIP section of the router.

Personally, I don't know Utorrent and would not open a hole in my firewall for it. Bit Torrent is the original and most trustworthy of the 'torrent" programs.
