Disclaimer: This is not about port forwarding. Sort of. I recently got a macbook and as a result, finally set up wireless internet in my house. Before I had the little Linksys router to deal with, bittorrent was just beautiful on my compy: all i had to do was port forward, watch my firewall, and bam, happy green smiley face in azureus. Since I had to set up the wireless though, bittorrent has gone back down to yellow smileys and is having serious issues making connections on both the mac and the desktop - but especially the mac. I have done literally everything I could think of, I have my TCP port set to 16875 and my UDP port set to 16880; and I've forwarded my ports on BOTH my router and my modem from 16870 to 16890. I've also tried port triggering the same ports, with the trigger port set to 6881 (I assume this is the azureus default trigger regardless of any changes made to the TCP or UDP ports?). I've got my static IP set up, I've disabled all firewalls that I could humanly find, but still azureus tells me it has a NAT issue and is being blocked by some firewall. This is on both the mac and on the PC, but like i said before the mac seems to have an even harder time making connections and is usually stuck with periods of no connections to a couple then back to none. The only other thing I can think of that might affect this is that my modem is plugged into my router as not the internet source but as a seperate computer (I'm not sure exactly why, but a friend set it up for me and it didn't work when we followed the Linksys directions and put it into the internet port, it only works in a computer port). If yall need any more information just let me know, but i'm starting to think that it's just something ridiculously simple i'm overlooking. Are there any extra firewalls that I'm missing, is there something special about LInksys Wireless WRT54G routers I should know about, etc etc. My modem is a Westell WireSpeed, model B90-210030-04S2. thanks for any help in advance.
