ok 1st of all, im new here so a big hello to every 1..

my problem is that when i try and use the port forwarding options listed. it dont seem to work for me. maybe i am doing something wrong. i use bt home hub and i also use utorrent. please help me.,.
it stated that i was firewalled which i cured. it also states i have dl 56mb and uploaded 4mb, according to the program utorrent i have dl roughly 38mb with 2 torrents running and upped just under 10mb between them, i need to get this sorted as other users will suffer :)

thanx in advance

:wave: hello

yes your upload capasity is slower than your download.. carry on - all is well

keep your torrent window open - it will even out

need more info on your equipment, pls
an actual 'hub' would have no need of port forwarding... as it likely wouldn't be a firewall.

what is you indication that you need to forward a port, at this point?

thanx will give that link a go..
latest update

1 of my dl has finished . metalica - 26-09-1986 the last gig.. currently uploading but no upload rate..

1 is still dl - metallica 23-06-1992 dl speed 77kbs up speed 37kbs.

does this sound right, why is the one thats finished not showing an upload speed

also when i allow all connections on my firewall i get better dl/up speeds but when i turn it back on they drop alot

thanx :)

hey Deadone - i see you stopped/removed your first show from the torrent client
to seed back (give back/upload) you simply keep it running

you are not firewalled

yeah, i stopped it to turn configure my firewall, now seeding the 1st show that i got, thanx for all the help, all seems well now..

finished torrent - up at 12kbs
unfinshed - dl@<hidden> 71kbs + up@<hidden> 21

this looks more like it i think :)

Welcome to the Den mate - and thanks for taking the extra time to be sure your ports are open :clap:

Everyone wins with open ports! :vino:

I want to get my ratio in order, but what I am seeing is...
It looks like my isp provides me with a 10.*.*.* range IP address when I get a DHCP lease. If I understand correctly this means I am essentially on the ISP's LAN. Is there a way for me to forward through? I am showing up as firewalled. DO I simply need a different ISP?
