I'm at 14.88 GB downloaded and 17.70 GB uploaded but it says I'm FIREWALLED.

I'm trying my best to share with everyone but honestly I don't know how to unfirewall my router for this mac computer.

If someone could possibly show me a simple step by step instructions for unfirewalling my Mac computer with a Netgear Router WPN824 v3, I would appreciate it a lot. I'm not very computer savy and this stuff has bothered me for a little while now.

I want to help out here.

Thank you

huh...my firewall in the security settings on my mac says "Firewall: Off" "This computer's firewall is currently turned off. All incoming connections to this computer are allowed."

I guess I'm confused now.

I've been uploading a lot on these Counting Crows/Wallflowers recordings on here. My ratio is pretty good too. I don't know what to say I guess. I tried restarting and signing in again, still comes up FIREWALLED.

If your firewall is off (not a great idea IMO) then it sounds like a port forwarding issue with your router.
