  1. Yeah, I'll give it a shot. But every attempt at port forwarding on this d-link doesn't seem to work like on a linksys. But this is what the ISP put in.
  2. No shit!!? This is bigger news than "crime hits the net!" J/K It was open for a joke that I couldn't resist. Anyways, I've tracked it down to blocked ports by my ISP. Seems they want to save on bandwidth so they've blocked all ports that common with file shareing. 6881-6999, 6667 (irc, have to use port 7000 just to connect), and a couple of others that I can't remember offhand. I've spoken with thier representative stateing that there is no indication of any blocked ports in my contract. They gave me some bullshit about viruses and whatnot. So BT is out unless people start useing uncommon ports in thier trackers like 20000 or something, instead of the usual 6881, and others. I would contest the contract if it weren't for the fact that this is my only alternative for internet out here. No phone lines, and DSL is too expensive. I'd give my left nut to have cable again.
  3. It's satellite I'm sure. They have a dish at the local radio station with the transmiter on it's tower. All I have is a small antenna on my car barn. And yes the weather does effect it but it has to be storming pretty hard for me to drop connection. if you want to check it out. I was able to download something today. I grabbed the torrent for the new systm video. But appearantly this is the only one out of alot of torrents that I've tried, that works. The tracker is on port 20000 which is probably why I can get through than a tracker on say 6881. Might have to test this out to be sure.
  4. Hi all, first post but I have been reading the forums and listening to the show for quite some time now. Anyways, onto the problem at hand. Due to my location, living in the sticks in indiana, I'm only able to get two types of i-net connection. Wireless or DSL. DSL in my area is way too expensive, ($600 on site install fee, plus $39.99 a month for 512k up 128k down) so I had to get wireless. I can't be entirely sure, but I think some ports are blocked by my ISP. I can't get any info on this because I think they are n00bs when I ask networking questions. But I've been trying to download via BT. Now I can connect to the trackers but as for uploading and downloading, I just can't get anything. Seeds and peers are always on 0. I've tried about 6 different clients and all have the same results. Except for bitcomet which will actually connect some peers but nothing downloads. I've tried all I can think of to open ports on both windows and the router. I have not tried BT on my linux box yet because I have a fried net card and the windows box has a built-in net. Now if it's not my ISP, then I hope someone here can give me something that will help out alot. If it is my ISP, is there a proxy or other means that will get past it? I appreciate any help you can offer, and thanks for reading my post. Router: D-Link DI-604 rev.
