Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GL Router
I'm trying to download a movie (all legal!) with utorrent and it seems that this particular router can take up to 5 days to complete a download (utorrent help page). I'm not technically minded enough to know how to sort this out!!
Any ideas? The help page talks about changing firmware? I have no idea what this means or how to do it! I'm new to all this! Please help!!!
Before we can forward ports for Utorrent, we need to figure out what ports Utorrent is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on
how to do that. Go ahead and open up Utorrent.
Click Options in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Preferences.
Click Connections on the left hand side of the Utorrent program. You should now see the menu shown in the screenshot above. Make sure the Enable UPnP box is unchecked. The number in the Port Used for Incoming Connections box contains the port you need to forward. You can change the port number, if you want to. Please enter the port you chose into the box below.
