    The router is, at least, part of your problem and, maybe, all. First, set yourself a static ip address: http://portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm It's easy and prevents your router from selecting different ip addresses that render any port forwarding useless, just pay attention to the dns part. Then go here, find your router, click on it, find your program in the next window, click on it and follow the instructions: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm Check this list to ensure your ISP isn't on it: http://www.azureuswiki.com/index.php/Bad_ISPs I forgot to add, use a port over 10,000.

    There is a really good guide on this site in the Windows P2P forum that will help you out.
