Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

if you checked your torrent port with canyouseeme.org - then dont worry about it.

if you recently made changes and want the 'firewalled' warning to go away:

stop all torrents (for a moment) > log out of the site > log back in > start torrents
(takes all of 2mins)

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

dammit...now it says I'm firewalled again.

This time canyouseeme.org also says I'm not connectable.

This is frustrating. early this week my modem/router died. so i had to completely set my network up all over again. ever since then i've been struggling to get connectable. I've got my port forwarding set up...also have a static IP address too. Something's not right...

router model / computer OS please

are you certain your network card in your computer is set for static and not the default DHCP?

linksys WRT54G
Windows XP

As for the network card, I assume it's okay because prior to my network failure earlier in the week I never had any connectability issues...

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

I was connectible last night after our discussion...and was still connectable this AM before I logged out and took the laptop to work.

...but since I got home from work this afternoon & reconnected to my wireless network, I'm not connectable anymore

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

that makes perfect sense if your laptop grabbed a new IP address from your linksys router.

start > command > ipconfig /all
(gives you current IP info.. your current IP address 192.168.1..x is what we're looking for)

log into your linksys > then verify that the IP address you set to forward out is identical with the one your laptop current has.

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

hmm...actually the first thing I checked was my Network Config > Wireless Connection > Properties > TCP/IP > Properties to see the IP addresses. I confirmed that the static IP address I picked is still there, and it does match the IP address I have set up in my router.

My router IP is actually 10.10.10.1 and my laptop IP is 10.10.10.101. I have 10.10.10.101 set as my static IP in Network Settings and that is the port-forwarded IP set up in my router config.

This is weird though....because as of right now:

* TTD says I am connectable
* Another private tracker I'm a member of shows me as connectable
* uTorrent is giving me the green checkmark
* however, the uTorrent function "test to see if port is forwarded properly" says I'm NOT connectbale
* canyouseeme.org says I'm NOT connectable

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

one other thing I've noticed is that my D/L speed is reduced from its normal peak level. It's not horrible, but it's not as fast as it was before my network failure a few days ago.

It used to always be around 210-225 kB/s. Right now it's at about 150 kB/s

I have Verizon DSL.

Re: TTD says I'm firewalled...HOWEVER

bet you are setup with a double router config then..

your verizon DSL modem router is handing off dynamic (192.168.x.x) to your linksys which you've setup class A (10.x.x.x)

a double router config works..but its incorrect/unnecessary/giving you grief

you need to connect your laptop directly to the verizon DSL modem >
enter the config>
set it for bridge mode

***you can call verizon for this config change - they will walk you thru it***
