Is your ISP messing with BT?

Mine is, and I gave the new BitComet a try, definite improvement.

Went from single digit download and uploads to 50-100kB/s, not the fastest, but the connection is real shitty, and the router isn't that special. Not to mention there's 9 people using the same connection. I know there are some people who are having trouble with BT, I always see them in IRC. Give this a shot, if it helps post back, I want to know if this really works. I plan to let the whole cot damn area know about this and screw this ISP over.

EDIT: Forgot to mention what's different this time around, BitComet 0.60 has some encryption going on. I have no idea how that works, but it sure does help.
 
well for mine, whenever i turn on any torrents, i tried bitcomet and utorrent, i get a similar disconnect of my network.


Here's a scenario:

D/ling off IRC or FTP for hours. Everything fine
Open up bitcomet -> "LOCAL NETWORK CABLE HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED"
then it reconnects
Run some torrents would result in disconnect every 10 or so min, not exactly.

I think it has more to do with my router than ISP.
 
port is already forwarded. What's UPnP? where do i turn it off?

Go into your router settings and find it. In your browser type in 192.168.0.1 enter name and password (most likely administrator/administrator) and find uPNP settings.
 
I have a Dlink DI-524, should Gaming Mode be on? I just found out from here that uPnP should be off. Why is that?

Oh yeah, is this router suitable for 9 people? All the wired connections (I think 3 or 4) are used, and the rest are on wireless.

I have that same router with gaming mode on. Never had problems with that setting.

The most people I've ever had on that router at once is 4, so I don't know how many it can handle.

What version of firmware are you running? I find that 3.02 works the best for me. The newer version kept causing my connection to disconnect momentarily.
 
thanks, just found upnp, it's quite hidden.
 
A router (wireless or not) can gernally handle an entire subnet of folks, which is more than 200 (usually 254) the only limiting facotr is the total bandwidth available to you!

It's the wireless version.

Yeah, mine is the wireless version too. I think all DI-524's are wireless. Your's is revision A (an older version) mine is revision C.
 
Some ISPs block ports used by common filesharing programs (such as Azureus). To get around this, just forward a different port instead of the default one the program uses. Also, make sure you change the default port in the filesharing program to the new one.

haha, speaking of the DI-524, some a dude over at broadbandreports discovered that you can flash it up to a DI-624 and get some bonus features, like Super-G and WPA-2. A lot of people have tried and confirmed it:

(even made the front page forum news!)

You have to have revision C though since it uses the same Atheros chip as the DI-624. Older revisions won't work.
