Utorrent downloads with WRT54GL?

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.
Utorrent's Port for incoming connections To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address. Take a look at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below.

Do not skip this step! Please enter the static ip you want to forward to: 192.168.1. Utorrent downloads with WRT54GL? - wrt54gl0.jpgsrc="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/wrt54gl0.jpg" alt="wrt54gl0.jpg" class="h_mi" />

Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address shoulUtorrent downloads with WRT54GL? - wrt54gl1.jpg192.168.1.1.

Port Range Application Start End Protocol IP Address Enable To Both 192.168.1. We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Utorrent requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Range Forward menu.
When you're finished, click Save Settings near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

BitTorrent has now greatly improved from its previous version. It now has the features that it lacked before like the functionality of picking which files in a torrent you want to download and basically do everything that utorrent can do especially that it also owns uTorrent now.

How to download videos for free


Hi Geraldmabias,

You could download videos or movies for free using torrents.
Here is how it works.
Open google.com and in the search box type utorrent and click on search.
Download this software and install it.
Now go to some torrent sites like
thepiratebay.com
torrentscan.com
Open torrentscan.com and in the search box type the movie or video you would like to download.
if you see the movie click on it and click on download torrent, this will open utorrent software and provide the path to download it.

This will work absolutely fine.
Enjoy downloding.
