Thread: Being connectable?

  1. #1
    I don't fucking get it. I read the guides. I selected a port. I configured my router, etc. And I'm connectable. The uTorrent test says so, and other tests says so.

    But then sometimes, suddenly, I'm no longer connectable. Nothing's changed. WTF. It might be my shitty Netgear router. I don't know.

    A firewall a while back packed up on me, It kept closing windows eventually I uninstalled It.
    Installed a new firewall did the router thingy portforward everything I did with the old firewall.
    And I'm still unconnectable that was several month ago, I still get the same speeds and all but I'm still unconnectable

    Eventually I declared victory and move on, I still don't why I'm unconnectable.

    My router gets weird after about 2-3 weeks. After a 10-15 minutes break, I turn it back on and it's back to it's old self again.

    Maybe it's something like that, which is wrong, just more frequent.

    Nowadays, there are more trackers than there are members, so if your tracker misbehaves, they get bookmark removed, or worse, URL deleted.

    If you setup your port forwarding correctly, make sure you also set static IP in your PC - the one installed utorrent.

    can you still max your download on "unconnectable"

    hm, ok, I didn't have a static IP setup So I hope this should make things better.

    Probably. I was more upset about not connecting to the entire leeching pool on a torrent I recently upped. A swede got all the glory.
