Re: Ports Open - Yellow Light Question

I unchecked the "randomize ports" and right now the port range is 10000-60000. so when i download from EZT, the port number showing in red by my name in the list of leechers is often something like 23765, as opposed to some number between 6881 and 6889.

I do use Bit Tornado 0.3.7 although I have also used Azureus and had the same problem.

(Also even with the yellow light, my download speed seems pretty high, usually 40-50 kb/s depending on the other leechers of course, over 100 is not uncommon and it's gone as high as 170.)

I'm not very tech savvy, so what does all that mean?

Thanks for your time as always.

No offence but if you can't even explain to us how your connection is setup no one is going to be able to help you. You need to stop figure things out then come back to us. If you have a router there is no reason to be going trough your wifes computer step one would be to get yourself hooked straight into the router.
