    ok before i start i hav read other threads on this subject but cannot figure it out.I use bittorrent and its the old "online, maybe firewalled" problem.What i have done so far is:

    1.Disabled windows firewall and router firewall - still says firewalled?
    2.Did all that forwarding ports about 20 times - seem to hav followed instructions to a tee but still isnt working.
    3.Switched to other clients to see wud it make a difference - it didnt.

    Does anybody hav any suggestions on where i might be going wrong?any help much appreciated thank you

    Well maybe im doing it wrong too. i am using a linksys router and the only thing i can think of is that i put the application as torrent, should it be bittorrent, or bit torrent? i am usually pretty good at computer stuff, but the really technical administration and network stuff has me kind of at a loss

    thanx in advance if you can offer any suggestions
