All torrent programs as a reward system. The more you upload the more speed you get.
Thats where port forwarding helps.

By opening the port it needs you are able to upload to other users. Which then lets you get more download speed.

But even with this, that doesn't mean you will get more speed.

You will see seeds and leechers.

Seeds are people uploading the file and who you are downloading from. leechers are people downloading just like you. So if there are way more leechers than seeds then you will get slow speeds for a bit till your upload ratio grows.

Keep in mind some ISP's also throttle highly used ports, so every now and then you need to change what port it is using :wink:

If it is a new router I would call support on that error, I am curious to why it is giving that to you. :wink:

Can you post a screen shot of that error. I think I know what you are saying but it just doesn't really make sense. I know some routers only allow a certain number of addresses then you might be putting in to large of a value but I'm still a little confused on the error exactly.

Have you tried calling Belkin and asking them what the error means?

I would guess that either your router or the computer IP address doesn't end with a number between 1-254. If you do an IPCONFIG from the the command prompt what IP address do you have for the router and your computer?

Well all those IP addresses are in the range of 1-254 so it isn't explicitly that. I looked all over Belkin's support site and can't find it mentioned. You need to call up Belkin and tell them you're getting this message and be firm with them to give you an explanation and if the person on the other line can't explain then ask to speak to a supervisor who can. I'm sure it's a sign of a bigger problem but until the company who put the message in there can tell you what causes it to come up we can only guess.

I would even just ask them what causes the error message and not volunteer what you did to get it. See if the info they give matches what you did. If they tell you it must be a firmware issue and that you need to update the firmware then you get to say that is precisely when you see the error... :confused:
