Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)
I dunno if this question is within your remit but its to do with routers and firewalls and I'm desperate. can't download from utorrent. worked well previously. not used for a few weeks. in that time we've downloaded free virus protection software, in addition to virgin's, which we pay for. phoned u torrent helpling in usa. said it could be new virus protection software or router could have been reconfigured by ISP. its not been reconfigured by us, except that we did last night fit a netgear wireless router to transport broadband into another room. I've turned that off now in order to eliminate that as the problem. The problem remains. which is that downloading from u torrent is taking several hours for one track and at the end it says its failed. on checking the port it says the port is blocked and to check on a given website that peerguardian2 or protowall is allowing utorrent.com 18.104.22.168.
so i have that info. and i have the portforwarding website. then i have no idea what to do. i've gone to their 'common ports' page. but i don't know what i'm looking for. i've searched for peerguardian2, protowall, virgin (our ISP) and belkin (our router). none on there. looking for the wrong thing. I;ve done the same on their 'you might want to look at our ports for firewalling page'. same thing. don't know what i'm looking for and kind none of the 4 names above. on one page or another there is a big list of belkin serial nos. should i tick the correct one of these?
help! can't download any music and we are paying a subscription.
there is no other problem in using broadband or the router. we can access the internet fine.
Hi i went through ur problem ....i am really glad to assit u with this issue ...If u hav got the port number for the utorrent website go on with the following steps:
Step 1: Connect modem>>belkin>>computer
Step 2: On the computer open the browser page and type http://192.168.2.1
Step 3: Towards the left corner check for virtual servers under firewall
Step 4: U will hav 20 check boxes
Step 5: Check the first enable box and enter ur port number and the type either tcp/udp
Step 6: Private port and the inbound port are the same
Step 7: Disable firewall also
I hope that this would surely help u out
