Download master will not connect

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

"Network Error!!
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.

    I have exactly the same problem. I have spent weeks to try to get it working, total waste of time. If you google download master, you will see this problem existed since 2006, and today the problem is still there. You would think that Asus would have fixed it by now, apparently not. Bottom line Asus is full of **** in delivering the Download Master. If your intention is to do download without PC, this Asus piece of **** is NOT working.

SOURCE: Network printing suddenly stopped working

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.

SOURCE: 3 problems writting on hd, drop connection n download master

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 !

Warning !

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.

Hi,
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).

As instructed i master reset my wireless router, due to the fact that i forgot my password. My internet connection wont work at all, now that i have "master reset" my linksys Wrt100 router.


When you do a Master Reset on a wireless router it sets the hardware back to factory settings.

To get this working again you will need to run the setup wizard CD to reconfigure the device.

You can find all the setup programs and documentation on how to configure at the following location:

Good luck.

Take the ethernet cable which is going from your Warner cable modem to your computer, and run it from your cable modem to the input connection of your router. Then take a second ethernet cable and run it from the router (ports 1, 2,3 or 4) to your computer. Log into your router's setup page (see your instruction manual), and set up all the passwords and wireless settings. Please read the instructions for specifics of your particular router.

WRT160N Wireless Router : i just bought a new laptop and a lynsis wrt160n......


The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.
You have WRT160N router.
This router has issues with the Firmware.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.

Wireless computer not having internet access


Hi Heathcass,

Ok, generally, you must have the the modem connected to the wireless router throught the port marked WAN and the the computer that is directly connected to the router (if options like that are available), though the lan port.

That said, there could be a few reasons for your computer not being able to connect to the wireless router. Please ensure that:

  • Your computer has a wireless adaptor and that that proper drivers and software for the computer using the wireless adaptor have been loaded into the system.
  • The physical cabling are all intact and firmly connected.
  • You are able to "see" the access point by ensuring that the software loaded into the computer to be connected wirelessly says "you are now conencted to the access point and the internet"
If all these are up and running, there should not be ny problems. However, if you do face problems, try to identify the arena of error by doing a ping test. Follow these steps:

  • Go to Start>Accessories>Command Prompt and open program
  • Type ping www.yahoo.com -t This is done to ensure that there is a connection to the internet.
  • If you ger a respond that says "unable to send ping packets" or something like that, with a failure report of "request time out", you might need to reset the the WAP or modem by powering it off and on.
  • re run the ping test to see if connection is established.
whilst these are some simple troubleshooting steps, please do not hesitate to revert back to me if you should find there should be any trouble. Also, please dont forget to rate this solution if it has helped you in any way. Thank you.
