Question about Zyxel NBG-415N Router

1 Answer

Problem with my Belkin wireless (model #F5d7230-4) resolved.

However, even though my ports are all open, my NAT port map added & I have a green light on my WAN, my download speed is still slower than it could & should be. My question; I've heard it said that my IPS can block my bandwith. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this?

    FR: breatheasy toTech75; My ISP is Eastlink, My contract speed is 800 kB/s, my current speed runs between 10 & 20 kB/s. I do understand this also depends on the number of peers and seeders. I contacted my ISP today & their sending a Tech out on Wed. to look in on the prob. Hopefully, the fault is on their end so it don't cost me $50. But I'm still gonna look in on Fixya for any solutions in case the prob. is on my end though I don't understand how it could be. I have green lights all over and my gear's all new. Thanks!!!

    Fr: breatheasy to speakeasy; Yea, already did the speed test today. Comin in at 09776 kB/s. I download movies from BitComet and you're right, torrents are very random speed. My friend next door has been using this site for a couple of yrs. now & his downloads are finished in a couple of hrs. while mine can take days. The only difference is he has XP & i have Vista, he uses a Dlink. I had 2 of those, both defective so I switched to Belkin. I've tried everything including reinstalling my Network card. Thanks for your info though. Appreciate any other suggestions from the Fixya community and thanks Fixya for your site. I tip my hat to ya, from what I've seen of your site so far (new PC user), you're a valuable commodity. Thanks again to all of you!!!

What is your current download speed? And what is your service contract speed you are suppose to be getting.

And yes they can cap your connection speed.

    Ok you have a very low end high speed internet service. Ok to find out the speed you are getting do a speed test.

    I don't know what you are trying to do with your connection but you mentioning seeding I'm assuming your doing bit torrent activity. Torrents are very random speed there is no sure speed to them.

    Ok now I'm lost you said you are contracted for 800kB but your test came out 9776kB which is almost 10x faster than what you are suppose to be receiving. So far it appears that your connection is great. It must be a setting in your program. Add more peers that can feed you

Belkin G plus mimo

Hi never ever disable nat on your router as that is the one which gives ip address to computer , x-box etc. You can make your x-box live work by just opening some ports
1. open rsp by typing in
2. On the left hand side under firewall you"ll find virtual servers
3. Click on that --- You"ll find some fields then check on enable for 1,2,3(ie three rows)
4.Description - x-box for all three
5.Inbound Port: 88-88 ,connection type : udp ,private port : 88-88 for the first row
6. Inbound port : 3074-3074 , connection type : udp , private port : 3074-3074 for second row
7. Inbound Port : 3074-3074 ,connection type : tcp , private port : 3074-3074
8. As FOR the private ip address it is that of your x-box which you can find on the dash board of your x-box . Same for all three rows .
9. Best of luck And do rate me

Cant get a green light in bitcomet

You might follow these instructions
(although the creation of a static IP is not necessary) if you don't make it then you might have to change the IP you forward the port to depending on whether your computer's IP changes. (you can check that under the network page you find in control panel by highlighting the network you're connected to and looking in the bottom right corner of the window) (or by opening cmd through run and typing ipconfig).

Strict NAT?

If you call microsoft, and tell them that your NAT is strict, they will tell you specific ports you will need to forward. (For Free). If you arent sure how to forward ports, call up your routers manuafturer, or send me another message. I have forwarded my ports as well.
