    Hi, I've got the D-Link 624+, also the silver box, I'm sure its pretty much the same.
    Open Internet Explorer and type your routers IP like you would configure it, in there click on Advanced and then select Firewall. In there enable it, type in a name you would like to call it, select Allow. At Source select WAN and in the IP range start box put a star (*) without the brackets of course. At Destination select LAN and in IP range start type in the IP of your router, protocol should be TCP and in port range you enter 6881 - 6890, select always and click apply. The router should restart, do so with your PC too and let me know if it worked.

    I need help guys, I am using Azureus, the lastest version, Using XP SP2. I am using a DSL modem, 3MB download, however test show up to 1.5MB, I use Windows XP firewall, the port 6881 has be allowed . I also have norton antivirus 2004. Ok I have been having very very slow speeds and alyways getting yellow. So if someone can help me with some specific info it would be a great help.

    oh yeah the config wizard says I have some NAT problems I have looked around but still dunt quite understand what to do other than allowing the port in windows firewall

    My Bittorrent D/Ls have been going painfully slow (0-10kbs) lately, and however helpful this forum has been, the problem is we don't have a router. We have a Motorola SB4200 Surfboard Cable Modem and a D-link DWL-900AP+ Wireless access point. Please somebody help me, I cant stand this much longer!!!!

    I'm getting speeds of about 40kb so I really can't complain compared to some of you guys, but I just wanted to know, the light is green, I allowed port forwarding on my router and when I check the port probe they all say closed. So everything seems find but when I run the nat check it fails on 6881-6890. what gives?

    Wow!!! Way too much conflicting and contradictory information her for a simple solution to this problem. Okay people, disable your software firewall if you are running one and follow the step by step on this link
    //http://p2p.weblogsinc.com/entry/0401842428674831/ to properly configure your router to open the appropriate port range.
    enough said!!!

    hey, Ive been using bit torrent for quite a while now, and started off at speeds around about 40 kb/s now im down to 20 kb/s if im lucky.
    I don't have a router and have setup my xp firewall to allow bit torrent, I have a 256kb/s connection speed someone please help!

    (is it true that the more files on your computer slows the download rate because there is more for it to upload rather than download?)

    If u are [bold]uploading[/bold] a couple of files at a time (4 or more) then, yes, im pretty sure that slows down your [bold]download[/bold] speed. Multiple downloads at a time can also slow download speeds.
    If you are downloading something stop uploading (seeding) temporarily until you finish downloading. Continue seeding when download finishes.
    On Azureus leave your torrents for uploading until you reach a share ratio of at least 1.000.
