I own the viewsonic wr100 On ths speed test at dslreports.com, it shows i have 237 kb/s download and 129 kb/s for upload, but when i actually try to download something, either its stupid Shaw (service provider), or my router is messed up, because when i download something, it only downloads at 30 kb/second max. On Utorrent, the port is sat at 15846, and when i test it, it doesnt work. If its my router, how do I change the ports to get the actual internet (broadband) i pay for?
**PortForwarding.com has nothing for Viewsonic routers :(
Well, depends on how you are downloading the file. If you are testing it with your browser (IE or Firefox) then they only allow 2 connections when downloading, so that is why. Have you configured your torrent client to accept more than the defualt "half-open-limit". This changes the tcpip.sys file to accept up to 200 connections if you can apply this in your OS, I have XP Pro with SP3 so I am able to do that. Look around on your torrent client's forums. Also it may very well be your ISP bottlenecking your bandwidth.

have you rebooted your modem after you plugged in your router? remember, your modem picks up you computer's ip address and stays with that address until it gets powered off and on. then it gets the ip address of whatever device you have plugged in to. if you plugged your router to your modem without power cycling the modem, then you won't connect other devices wirelessly because it does not recognize the ip address.
Is there any computer online using the router. check the IP address on that computer. If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings. Click Here for more information about the routers and network
Please hard reset the router...look for the small tiny button at the back of the router for about 10 seconds. then logon to router by http://192.168.1.1 leave username blank for password "admin" as the default.
http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. A logon window appears
like the one shown on the next page.
The Logon screen:
User name: leave blank.
Password: enter the default password admin in all lowercase
letters. (Later on, we recommend changing the default to your
own password for added security using the Password tab of the
following web-based utility.)
Click OK. The Primary Setup screen appears as shown in the
Go to the security tab. You should see your key there.
Reset the router, Theres usually a push button on the back of it to reset it's cmos back to default. Then the instructions included should work. If not, you can always use John the ripper (linux) or cain and able (windows) to crack into it.
Double check all the steps in th user guide to set up the router.
You can download the manual from the link below:
You should be connected directly to the router by an ethernet cable. Do you see the led on the router for the port you are connected to lit to show you have a connection?
Have you configured your PC to get it's IP address by DHCP from the router? Your address should be 192.168.1.100. Check the status of your PC lan connection in the "network connections" screen.
Can you ping the router on 192.168.1.1?
If this fails try resetting the router by pressing the small button on the back & try again.
