my username and password isn't the default ones thatg I was referred to, and I never changed them, what do I do?

Usually there is a reset button on the router that will reset the username/password (I believe). Can you post the make/model of your router and we can look into it for you.

Have you gone here (http://btfaq.com/natcheck.pl) to see if you really are firewalled (or are you showing up in red brackets on the torrents)?

I'm showing up in red brackets in torrent threads

for example OPN's TAB 9-8-04 thread, I'm in red there

this is what I got when I ran that link u posted

Attempting connect to: 71.248.30.19 port 6881
Fail!
Unable to connect. This likely means you need to adjust your port forwarding configuration, or there is no client running on that port.

OK, what OS are you running? And, do you have any sort of firewall programs on your computer? And, do you have a router or modem? And, if so, what brand and model number?

I'm on win XP, and there's not firewall software that I installed, unless it came on the computer, which I disabled the "windows firewall"

I'm on a linksys WRT54G router

Here's a link that should help you forward your ports: http://www.portforward.com/linksys/wrt54g.htm If the images don't look exactly like yours, you probably have a slightly different model, so go here (on the bottom of the page) to look at the other models: http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm

Did you make sure to set up a static IP and not a dynamic one? That's a mistake many people make.

Unfortunately, I'm not a PC person... I was kinda hoping one would peek in here. But, you can tell what your current local IP is by opening up the terminal and typing "ipconfig". The 192.168.1.xxx is your local IP. That should be the one you put into your router. If you have everything right for a static IP, then that IP should *always* show up when you do an ipconfig on that computer. If it is dynamic, then the last number can change.

I just bought a Linksys WRT54G wireless router to hook up my laptop.
1. Type you ip into the internet browser (ie Mozilla Firefox).
2. The default username and password is blank for username and "admin" for password.
3. Click "Applications and Gaming" > "Port Range Forward"
4. Forward the port range which your bt client is using (usually 6881-6889, but may be different)
5. Select "Both" for Protocol TCP & UDP
6. Then Click "Applications and Gaming" > "Port Triggering"
7. Type BitTorrent 6881 to 6889 6881 to 6889 enable
Save everything and restart the computer.
Hopefully that will help

Update: Well, I spoke too soon. :redface: I tried the above and it just got me to "yellow". I am using BitTornado T-0.3.9
I'm on the right track though...

do I actually type BitTorrent, or do I type the prgram name of my client? (ie: ABC1)

I think you could probably even leave that part blank if you wanted. It is just as a reference so you will know what you are forwarding the ports for. FYI, I typed BitTorrent L for laptop and BitTorrent D for Desktop.
Also, I found that it should be TCP not both, but I'm not sure if it matters much.
Make sure you forward the ports 6881-6889 for the modem too.

how do I forward the modem?

you type in the DNS Server address into your browser and access the modem setup menu that way. For mine I go to Expert mode > Configuration > NAT > Define a new service > forward 6881-6889 TCP ports.
(To find your DNS Server number, right-click the windows internet icon in the taskbar and click "status". On the 'support' tab, click "details". The DNS Server is what you want xxx.xxx.x.xxx or something similar.)
