I keep losing my connection while downloading torrents. everything else works fine, but when i'm downloading torrents the router loses connection after a little while


Chances are your ISP is slowing you down run the second test on the following post.

Google's broadband test tools are located at Measurementlab.net. On that page, you'll see an first icon that says "Users: Test Your Internet Connection". Click that, and then you'll be taken to a page where there are three tests available, and two more listed as coming soon. However, out of the three available tests, only one of them is fully automated and easy to use.
Glasnost , second on the list, will check whether your ISP is slowing down (like Comcast) or blocking Peer2Peer (P2P) downloads from software such as BitTorrent. P2P apps are commonly used for downloading illegal software and media content like movies and music, but also are used for legal purposes as well, such as distributing large software packages to many users at once.
To use the measurement tool, you will be redirected to the Glasnost site. You'll need the latest version of Java installed, and you should stop any large downloads that you may have running before you begin the test. If you're on a Mac, a popup message will prompt you to trust the site's Java applet.
When you're ready to start, you can choose whether you want to run a full test (approximately 7 minutes long) or a simple test (4 minutes long).

Windows problems connecting to WPS enabled routers


You may come across connection problems when routers have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) enabled and clients do not support it.

In Windows XP, Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) may mistake a WPS enabled router for a WPA-Radius protected one and warn you that there is no certificate to connect to it:

To work around this problem, you can either disable 802.1x authentication on the client or disable WPS on the router's.

802.1x on the client can be disabled in the properties of the wireless network. On the Authentication tab, untick the 802.1x Authentication option. Make sure that the correct encryption type is selected on the Association tab and that the WPA Pre-Shared Key or the WEP key is entered.

On Windows Vista things may even be worse. When you try to connect to a WPS enabled network, Vista may prompt you for a user name, password and domain name as if PEAP authentication were used. When you manually create the network profile specifying WPA2-PSK, AES and the Pre-shared Key, Vista may refuse to connect stating that the network profile does not match the actual configuration. The only work-around in this case is to disable WPS on the router.

To disable WPS on the router, go to the Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
To learn how to disable WPS click here...
At the top of the page, just set WPS to disabled and apply changes. You may need to delete the profile for the network on the client card before it can connect to the router.

I want to port forward my router it is Nokia


> 100 Kb/second [using] browser

Web-servers, such as the one hosting 'www.HowToTell.com',
are designed to give fast download speeds.

> BitTorrent ... 2-3Kb/second

When you are downloading, you are connecting to other people's "home" computers. Typically, their ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit the speed of "uploading" (going "out" from those home computers) to a value about 1/8 of the "downloading" (going "into" those home computers) speed. That is "Strike One".

So, if multiple BitTorrent users are simultaneously "leeching" some files from the _same_ home-computer, that computer's speed-per-user is going to be very limited. That is "Strike Two".

Also, BitTorrent has been programmed to discourage "leechers" -- those who download to their computers, but who do not offer to "share" any content. So, being "behind" a router, your computer is being "blocked" from allowing people to "upload" (from your computer) and download (into their computer) any content. That is "Strike Three".

Login to the web-server on your router, and enable and configure "port-forwarding", to allow others (including the "Copyright Police" who monitor BitTorrent for violation of copyright law) to access your computer. (Violate copyright, and pay a big fine, and maybe go to jail.)

Hangs with Bittorrent


That is because you need to open a port on router with the same number assigned to your torrent client.

You need to check port number on bittorrent configuration, then access router control panel typing router IP on internet explorer address bar and configure the router to open the port.

Read the following articles.

File Sharing


Hi,

Here’s a very short summary of how to create a home network:

1) Create a named Workgroup (computer network name).
In Windows, the defaults are MSHOME or WORKGROUP, but you can choose your own

2) Add computers to the named Workgroup

3) Enable file and/or printer sharing.


Here are some resources to help you:

1. Windows XP has a wizard to walk you through it - see tutorial here

2. For Vista, try this link for a detailed overview: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037.aspx

These links might help too:
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-a-pc-network-workgroup.html

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/connect-to-and-share-files-with-other-pcs-on-your-.html

3. When it comes to sharing folders, there are two main ways to do this. You can either 1) right click the folder and enable sharing through the shortcut menu., or 2) add the file/folder to ‘Shared Documents’ (for XP) or ‘Public Folder’ (for Vista).

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if you have any difficulties. Good luck!

Wrt54gl + torrent + vista + WoW


Dear as you mention that you use broadband line which is provided to you on twin sharing basis and the problem occur is also at the pick time only. This mean that your provider who is providing you the broadband line might have share your line for some more clients or the client which is share with you use lot of bandwidth so you might get less. If this not solve your problem than try this. every day keep one system away from network and check the performance. There is possibility that one system keep sending lots of packet in the WAN network which caused the slow down. So if you trace such system in LAN kindly check the lan card or format it.

Router slows down radically after a few hours of use


Well that is because torrents and other p2p apps open too many connections and the router can’t handle it. Try limiting the number of connections torrents and other p2p can use.

you want to setup a peer to peer network using a workgroup. File sharing must be enabled in XP and Vista in order to share files. Temporarily disable the firewalls in Windows when setting up the shares....search on the Internet for setting up a Workgroup in XP
