Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Setting ports I have a satellite connection and use a Hughes HN7740S modem. I am trying to install 'utorrent' and get an error message 'Port 16663 does not appear to be open'. Should I be adding this port on my modem? I can't find any settings that will let me do this. Or, is it something I have to change on my laptop? Are there any security implications I should be aware of if I add a port? Geoff

Hello, I went through this with utorrent when I first started and I had trouble with my router not opening the port. When I hook directly to the modem the port is open. But after much research I found that you don't have to have the port open, it just enables other to download from the items that you are seeding. Works just fine either way. Enjoy.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I have helped you with your question and/or solved the problem, please take just a moment to rate this post. Thank you!

How do i hook up my belkin f5d7230-4 router to hughes net internet when there is only one ethernet port?


Connect that one port to your Belkin WAN (Internet)connector (Yellow Port). The other ports go to other computers, to their Broadband RJ45 connectors.
Here's from the manual:
1. Unplug your existing modem’s power supply.
Find the cable connecting your modem and computer.
Unplug it from the modem and plug it into the gray port
on the Belkin Router.
If you are replacing an existing router, find the cable
connecting the computer and old router. Disconnect it from
the old router and plug it into the gray port on the new router
2. Connect the new cable (provided in the box) to the yellow
port on the Router. Plug the other end into the modem.
G WIRELESS ROUTER Quick Installation Guide
3. Plug in your modem’s power supply. Wait 60 seconds for the
modem to start up.
Plug the Router’s power supply into a wall outlet, and the
other end into the black port on the Belkin Router.
As the Router wakes up, lights will come on; recheck your
connections if the “power” and one of the “wired” lights
are not lit up in green after 20 seconds.
4. Locate the CD in this guide and insert it into your computer
The Setup Assistant should appear automatically.
If it doesn’t, open the CD in My Computer (Windows®)
or the Finder (Mac OS® X) and double-click on the
“Setup Assistant” icon

Utorrent doesnt work with Huawei e220


Well, you could always try using Vuze ( formerly Azerus ) as a new bittorrent program, as it work very nicely. Though, you may have the same problem as you're having with uTorrent.

What you have to do is go into your router's settings and open port 25320 so the bittorrent program can get a connection.

Router will not route to another router of same type


The hughes modem is not a router.
What are you trying to do? Install the Linksys?

Plug the ethernet port on the Hugnes to the "Internet" or "WAN" port of the Linksys.

Then if you go into the config of the Linksys, you can tell if it gets a public IP address.

Xplornet Sat. connection and D-Link WBR-2310


Can you get a pc to connect to the internet? If you can, what IP address does HUGHES assign? If it is in the range of 192.168.0.X then change the DEFAULT GATEWAY address of the router to something like 192.168.10.1 (out of the box it should be set to 192.168.0.1)

Download speed


1.connect through the lan port

2. keep ip as automatic (from lan properties > tcp/ip)

3. open modem configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.

4. create a bridge or pppoe setting using vci = 0 and vpi = 35

5. if u choose bridge mode then create a dial up broadband connection from new connection wizard

6. give the port settings over there in modem and use the same ports in your torrent client.
7. You are done . and you will see the speed increases becoz of DHT enabling freely and you will get downloads bypassing the torent server tooo... :-)
Hope it helps to you. Thanks.

Problem with opening ports


I had the same problem, where I thought I needed to open the ports on my Wireless-G (for bittorrent downloads). Turns out, I had to open the ports on my DSL modem instead. After that, the port forwarding worked properly.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)

Port nt forwarded properly


I think you are asking for a router model number that works properly with what you are doing.
If you are already using a router, try connecting your pc directly to your modem and try to download. You should not have any problems with your download. If you are having problems, check your modem specs, maybe your modem is a modem/router(this means that you have to do your port forwarding on your modem.
