Hey Martha, I believe your problem is with your windows firewall, I just recently had a similar problem, I install Ouka on my pc, which i just re installed windows on, anyway, it worked great when i first started it to test it, then when i restarted pc it would not connect. The problem was my windows firewall(btw I run mcafee as my primary firewall), even though the ports were set and Ouka was allowed.. To correct the problem, first i deleted Ouka from my windows firewall, then i deleted the ouka program from my pc, turned off mcafee firewall, turned on windows firewall, re downloaded the ouka file and when i started the program again, windows firewall asked if i should block or unblock ouka, I unblocked it, set up the port. then i turned off my windows firewall, turned on my mcafee firewall and Ouka is working great ever since, even after restarts. Hope this helps, if not check out winmxworld.com forum I have posted there my problems/solutions for Ouka. Good Luck, Lisadee

Tips for a great answer:
I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.
This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)
1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.
2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.
3. Went into the DLINK configuration 192.168.0.1 and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.
4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.
5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router
