Re: Firewall/Port Forward Question

If you don't have access to the router, then you will not be able to forward your ports to become 'unfirewalled'.

If you are getting abruptly cut-off as soon as you finish your download, one thing you can do is prolong the time that it takes to download the show - and thus give yourself more time to be uploading the show. Simply set a low speed allowed for downloading. If you normally get speeds of 300 down, then cap your speed around 50 down and then it will take 6 times longer to download BUT it will also upload for 6 times longer. And, besides, if you are downloading overnight, who cares if it takes 1 hour or 6 hours to download the show? It will still be waiting there for you in the morning.
