    please help, im always getting a yellow light, i have a mentor adsl modem/router and have forwarded ports 6881 - 6889 and 6969 with TCP via the VPN section of the configuartion site, is this the correct page, is so what does private and public ports mean?

    i have tired 2 things

    private port - 6881 / public port - 6999 / TCP

    as well as

    private port - 6881 / public port - 6881 / TCP
    (this is repeated up to 6889)

    as you can see i've tired forwarding the whole block as well as individually but still a yellow light, anyone else have this router?

    please help, screen shots would be great, oh also i diabled all of my firewall software on my PC, help me get the green light! oh and i've left a couple bt running at home while im at work see whaty they are like when im home

    By the way you forward the ports 6881-6999
    not 6881 - 6889
    Changed SPAN settings in sig a YEAR after it was removed

    woo hoo&#33;&#33;&#33; yeah i have a crap router that only lets me forward 20 ports, before i forwarded them i got 5k max
    i forwarded ports 6881 - 6899 and 6969 and can now d/l at 100k....sweet

    i was cursin bt a day ago but once you sort out the settings its brilliant
    from what i can see there is no need to forward all the was to 6999

    thanks for all the help, this forum is perfect

    oh and i gotta green light

    anyone that has forwarded and still can seem to get the speeds, i recommend uninstalling the bt software - shadows in my case - and then reinstalling it and it works fine

    incorrect
    that is leaving more holes open than you need
    by opening 6881-6889 you have the possibility to have 9 different torrents open at the same time, more than enough, more is only a security risk
    please don&#39;t recommend that as it is incorrect
