Hello to everyone in the forum. This is my first post so bear with me
First i will list my system specs
Winxp, 3000MHZ 512MB Ram
AOL Broadband Gold 2MB
BT Voyager 205 Router (connected to 2 pc's)
I Used to connect to AOL using a Modem and i used Bitcomet and Azureus perfectly without any problems but since i have installed the router i have encountered problems. Whenever i load either Bitcomet or Azureus (without even going into detail of internal program problems) my web connection stops - im still connected to the router and according to the network connection im 'ok' and everything fine..... im just unable to pull up any webpages using IE or Firefox and my MSN logs off... So i thought i should mention that first because it seems like a serious problem ive got.
On the other hand i have gone through quite a few internet guides to set up a router including "Port Forwarding" and setting up a 'static' Ip Address on both pc's and editing my routers setting (i followed the guide from WWW.PORTFORWARD.COM. I cant really download anything from either Bit Comet or Azureus - i Maybe get 1Kb/s so theres obviously a connection but its basically non-active and i have to restart my pc before i can go back to using IE or Firefox (note: without loading BC or Azureus my internet works perfectly)
So, im kinda at a loose end.. ive tried everything i can to get either program working (i prefer Bitcomet) but im not sure what im doing wrong. As i said before ive gone through the Azureus and BC guides and set up my ports etc and done everything i think i should do but i think the issue of it stopping me from using the internet when ever i load either program is probably causing the issue somewhere on the line.
