What to do when security light is orange?


Reboot
  • The most basic way to attempt to fix a router problem is to reboot the device. This is accomplished by unplugging the powericon1.png cord, waiting for a minute and then plugging the power connector back in. If the orange light continues to blink, you will have to update its firmware.
Download New Firmware
  • Even though the wireless router is malfunctioning, downloading new firmware is possible by disconnecting the malfunctioning Linksys device from the Internet connection in the wall, then using that jack to plug your machine directly to the Internet. If this is not possible, use another computericon1.png that can connect to the Internet. You can download a firmware update directly from Linksys (see Resources).
Install New Firmware
  • Once you have the firmware update available on the computer affected by the malfunctioning router, open the file and follow the instructions to upgrade the devices firmware.

I want to port forward my router it is Nokia


> 100 Kb/second [using] browser

Web-servers, such as the one hosting 'www.HowToTell.com',
are designed to give fast download speeds.

> BitTorrent ... 2-3Kb/second

When you are downloading, you are connecting to other people's "home" computers. Typically, their ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit the speed of "uploading" (going "out" from those home computers) to a value about 1/8 of the "downloading" (going "into" those home computers) speed. That is "Strike One".

So, if multiple BitTorrent users are simultaneously "leeching" some files from the _same_ home-computer, that computer's speed-per-user is going to be very limited. That is "Strike Two".

Also, BitTorrent has been programmed to discourage "leechers" -- those who download to their computers, but who do not offer to "share" any content. So, being "behind" a router, your computer is being "blocked" from allowing people to "upload" (from your computer) and download (into their computer) any content. That is "Strike Three".

Login to the web-server on your router, and enable and configure "port-forwarding", to allow others (including the "Copyright Police" who monitor BitTorrent for violation of copyright law) to access your computer. (Violate copyright, and pay a big fine, and maybe go to jail.)

Can't download files and upgrade using my wireless


If you connect the computer to the modem, you are able to download the files.
But if you connect it through the router, it is not working.
the problem is with the router. Cogeco is a cable ISP.
you can reduce the MTU settings on the router. If MTU on the router is 1500 then Make it 1300.
Under security settings, disable the firewall on the router and disable the Block internet request.
If it doesn't work then try to upgrade the Firmware of the router.

Torrents Cause Timeouts on Motorola wr850gp


You need to set a BANDWIDTH limit on your torrents. Usually about two thirds you bandwidth eg if you had a 6mb connection set it for a max of 4 mb.

Many ISP's also throttle torrents to a point where it can stall out and cause issues elsewhere in a network.

If your torrent program has any stealth capabilities try setting those.
The terminology for that varies from program to program.

Loss of internet connection when going through router


Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.

Very slow, or no connection to internet, on wired computer, not wireless one


Yes, it would be best to reconfigure it. Try the following but note.. resetting the router will erase all previously given settings.

First, reset the router - when the unit is on, press the reset button (using a paper clip) for 20 seconds then let go of the button. Once the WLAN light is solid, it means that router has rebooted.

Go to a computer wired to the router and open Internet Explorer, enter http://192.168.0.1 on the address bar. Enter admin for the username and leave the password blank.

Once you're in the Dlink page, this is where you can configure your Internet and Wireless settings again. Just run through the setup process (as if you just got the device out it's box).

Goodluck!

Router slows down radically after a few hours of use


Well that is because torrents and other p2p apps open too many connections and the router can’t handle it. Try limiting the number of connections torrents and other p2p can use.

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.
