    Theres no need to do that, you can just forward the ports on your router and it should be fine. Go to and select your router from the list and follow the instructions. Your modem wont have a firewall built in however your router will.

    Also you should make sure windows firewall isnt blocking utorrent. Either disable it or add the ports youve forwarded on your router and that your using for utorrent to the exceptions list.
