Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
My dell laptop has gate way 192.168.2.1
it takes for ever to down load torrent
Who is your ISP? Comcast, and several other ISPs (ATT, for example) have started "delaying" torrent traffic. What they are actually doing is inserting a RST packet, causing the connection to reset, and the torrent then needs to start over. This is the likely reason your torrents are taking so long.
If you'd like to ensure that the router is not at fault, you can plug a cable from the laptop's Network port directly into the modem (you'll need to take the router out of the loop), then cycle the power to the modem (so it will see the laptop instead of the router), and then try your torrents. If everything then works as you would expect, the router is the problem. I think you'll see the same problem, and if so, it proves the router is not at fault.
