Question about ASUS WL-700gE Router
I bought this router just to download to it and not have my computers run all the time. I have yet to be able to do this! I go to download master and tell it to "connect" I get back the pleasant response of
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"
Lovely... not only does it refuse it but it actively goes out of it's way to screw me. I am on XP since it works even worse in Vista. piece of **** product.
I put in the latest firmware today.. no avail .
I have never in 6 months been able to connect to download master.. the printer sharing is **** too. that does not work either., but I only care about the downloads. My buddy who is a computer tech at a computer shop cannot help either so far.
I would consider replacing the whole linux with a complete new flash just to get a different bit torrent server.
any ideas would be appreciated.
Perhaps you might wanna try checking the IP address of the printer and see if it matches that of the ones that are mapped in each individual computer. There might be many factors in the "strange" events that have occured (PC gremlins, i call it). That should be an initial starting point.
Resetting the router wouldnt help, cause it is the router that issues different dynamic IP addresses (otherwise known as DHPC) to each and eveny node connected to the netwrok as well.
Another important thing to note is HOW these devices are connected to the router. Wirelessly? Wired connection? The fact that you can see the printer via the router means that there is no problem with the router's end, so the problem lies in the intermidiate connection from the computers to the router. Try to work on this angle. Thanks.

Use a FAT32 Formatted partition (32GB) on your external USB Harddrive as the main Master Download Area. To do this, connect the drive to the PC by USB and re-partition the drive in sections with the disk manager. 32GB for the FAT32 and the rest in NTFS. Re-connect the drive to the WL500W USB and the FAT32 partition will be recognised automatically by the Router. Linux users can use the full HD drive if they format the drive in Ext2/Ext3. Correctly formatted USB memory sticks with a capacity of 32GB are better suited for this un-attended (low power) dowloading. You can use a (FAT32) 8 Gbyte stick also !
Using only NTFS partitions will make the drive read-only and useless for un-attended downloads by the WL500W. Unfortunatly this is the case with 100% of all new availbale drives (>500GB) - So RE-PARTITION it wisely !!!
What about Queing (Waiting) ?
It waits for the connection and if bandwidth is available it starts the download. If files are missing on a server or the address is invalid an error is risen and the link is aborted or deleted. Many BitTorrent files are invalid or have nobody seeding. Waiting is therefore the best option.

If you insist on using GRE encapsulation, you should check following. http://www.howtonetworking.com/vpnissues/error806.htm
Your problem is probably that you haven't opened port 47 - IP Protocol (GRE).
