Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

Ports 6881-89 (I think; not at home right now) are definitely still forwarded for BT, just like I'd set them up to forward back when I was on everydayjones... I've never had 6969 forwarded though. Is that something specific for this site? I can't transfer easytree torrents anymore, now, either... There is a possibility that there's a communications issue, IP-wise, between the router and the LAN. I know that this would be a big pain for you, seeing how much information on the subject has already been posted in this post alone, but since I've had no luck when I follow the IP-configuration suggestions on the Linksys FAQ, could you suggest a from-the-beginning, step-by-step path for me to ensure that all the networking settings didn't get screwed by my computer shutting down that one day? Thanks so much for the help; I still haven't had enough free time in a day to get in touch with the cable co., so if I can get this fixed w/o having to try a new modem that'd be great!
OK, the first part makes no sense because your cable company assigns an IP addy to your MODEM, based on the MAC Hardware address. You plug the modem into the WAN port of your router which doesn't give a rat's ass what addy your modem is, just cares about letting your LAN talk to it.

Try www.portforward.com for a step by step setup routine.

I think we've covered all the obvious bases... I'm kinda out of ideas on this one. Good luck.

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

Well, one of the tech guys at the cable place is now convinced I have some sort of virus, even though he's not seeing any tell-tale signs on his end of viral infection. AntiVir, which my brother claims is the best thing going for free anti-virus software right now, cleans things up but not completely, I guess; I used Spybot Search & Destroy and even though that keeps having some "Z-Demon" error that I can't get rid of, I've been told by the same cable tech guy that Spybot is a piece of crap and I should stick with Ad-Aware (my brother told me the exact opposite.. I guess I'll try doing every imaginable thing to make sure that I have my system clean of viral problems, but even that may not help. Thanks for all of the help and suggestions everyone; wazoo, I'm going to try that step-by-step guide once I run through all of the virus problems... I appreciate it!

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

Ok, it's OFFICIAL - God does not want me to use BitTorrent anymore. My momma was right.

As of yesterday, the cable co. rewired the entire set of outside lines for my apartment complex (they said it looked pretty bad). So, I hook up my freshly-formatted laptop directly to my new cable modem, which is plugged into these new wires. Everything works fine.

BitTorrent doesn't.

I mean, what the hell? The cable guy's advice was "Try DSL". What the hell? How can something that was working PERFECTLY from August through January just crap out one day, while EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS?

The real killer is when I go up to school, sit on the wireless network, and get 20k/s speeds on any given torrent. It's definitely something to do with my connection at home, but now it seems as if the cable co is giving up (since everything ELSE works, and not a damn person in their tech department knows what BitTorrent even is) and I'm screwed b/c I need to buy a phone line JUST FOR DSL if I decide to do that (living off of my cell phone)...

So, that's about it. God said, "Thou shalt not BitTorrent", and that was that. I'm so depressed.

I just don't understand this. This is for torrents on *any* site? Not just here, right? Have you tried using ports other than 6881-6889? I've seen sites suggest using ports upwards of 51000. So, maybe try 51000-51010 instead. But, I'm just not sure that that is going to make a difference. I think something else is going on here and I just can't figure it out.

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

Exactly I'm running the laptop straight into the modem, so there's no ports on a router to forward; torrents from here, eztree, etc. work perfectly fine when I'm connected to the school network but does the same deal (connect, count out the peers and seeds, then sit there at 0k/s on both UL/DL) as before whenever I get home. NOONE can figure this madness out. I'm calling the cable co. again today because I think the only thing left to check is the wiring in my actual walls; the cable guy yesterday said that they couldn't be the problem, since they were installed less than 3 years ago -- but hell with that, 3 years is a lifetime in broadband technology, and I've probably got squirrels in my walls or something. It's just so damn weird that it's JUST BITTORRENT THAT DOESN'T WORK!

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

I'm completely flabbergasted. The cable guys came out today, replaced metal ends of cables that were outside around my place, tried everything they could think of - still nothing. Finally, though, I figured out a good idea: Here's the console report from Azureus about what's happening:

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

It keeps on failing to establish an outgoing connection; it's like there's some sort of firewall problem, but I'm running this directly from my cable modem to laptop, no router to mess with IPs or anything. Any ideas based on any of Azureus' error messages? Hopefully?

I have a strange feeling your ISP is blocking ports and not telling. I've found my ISP to be clueless. I have road runner and found the people at the local oficce will have no clue about port blocking traffic and stuff like that. They will just keep sending the same retarded tech out to my house. I know a girl who was hired to be a cable installer for Road Runner, the night before she started work I had to teach how to install a NIC card.

I know for a fact there have been serveral times my ISP has cut back my connection and my speeds. I call them and they always say they don't do that. Then they send a guy to do all sorts of work that has'nt worked the last 40 times they have been out here.

It's funny how these problems I have only happen durring months when I'm using BT heavily. Then once a new billing period starts everything works fine again.

My point, your ISP is blocking something, the people you talk are either to dumb to know or are jsut plain lying to you. The fact that they keep sending someone out to your house is a sign that they are dumb.

Re: Recognizing Peers/Seeds; No UL/DL, though? Perhaps PC help needed?

Rider, I think you're absolutely right. I'm going to try going to another Vista III Media cable user's house on the other end of town today, then try someone's house that has BellSouth DSL, and see if I can BT on any of them. If I can't BT at the other cable modem at all, I'm guessing it's the whole city's system that's got the problem, not just my house. Which sucks, but means that it may get fixed (but probably not, since I seem to be the only one in town complaining). If BT works fine at the other person's cable internet connection but not at mine, I'm calling up the national office and requesting that whatever the hell they have blocked on my connection be removed or risk losing my business to BellSouth effective immediately. You said that you've called and confronted a co. like this, but I couldn't figure out whether that actually did you any good or not -- my big thing is, every week I go without a BT connection, I'm missing out on three or four new GREAT releases getting dropped on this board, and I'll end up spending the same in $$ on blanks and trades that I would on a connection if this doesn't get taken care of soon.. I'm usually a patient guy, but if this problem getting fixed will take a full month's billing cycle, or possibly more, I'm not going to bullshit around like that. Is that the only way your problem was fixed (by waiting)? I don't really trust them to have it fixed if all I do is wait.. although daily telephone calls and tech support visits don't seem to help, either.

If I can't BT at the other cable modem at all, I'm guessing it's the whole city's system that's got the problem, not just my house. Which sucks, but means that it may get fixed (but probably not, since I seem to be the only one in town complaining). If BT works fine at the other person's cable internet connection but not at mine, I'm calling up the national office and requesting that whatever the hell they have blocked on my connection be removed or risk losing my business to BellSouth effective immediately. You said that you've called and confronted a co. like this, but I couldn't figure out whether that actually did you any good or not -- my big thing is, every week I go without a BT connection, I'm missing out on three or four new GREAT releases getting dropped on this board, and I'll end up spending the same in $$ on blanks and trades that I would on a connection if this doesn't get taken care of soon.. I'm usually a patient guy, but if this problem getting fixed will take a full month's billing cycle, or possibly more, I'm not going to bullshit around like that. Is that the only way your problem was fixed (by waiting)? I don't really trust them to have it fixed if all I do is wait.. although daily telephone calls and tech support visits don't seem to help, either.

Nope it never really helped me at all. One thing I found though with Road Runner. When you call Road Roader they have a menu system. At one point they ask "Is the connection light on your modem blinking or off" if you say its blinking they send you the local office, if you say the light is on steady, you connect to the national tech center. Not sure if your comapnay is like that but I found no mater what always talk to the national guys.

I"m sure my problem is still, I jsut dont notice cause I dont download much anymore, last month twoards the entil of the billing period it started acting but that was just for a few days.
