Through trial and error experiments on my router settings (which I don't understand a fig since NAT, forwarding, Qos, DDNS, DMZ, uPnP, ALG etc are all chinese to me) I finally managed to get my utorrent to display that nice green 'very-good' symbol saying "Network OK. Your network connection is working like it should" when hovering mouse-pointer over it. Before, I used to always get a red symbol or occasionally a yellow one (meaning listening port was closed through either firewall, router or both). Now I was thinking that this "closed port problem" had been solved - the symbol being green and saying all is OK... However, when I left-click this green symbol and then on tab saying "Test if port is forwarded properly" the resulting site (http://www.utorrent.com/testport.php?port=xxxxx) displays a large red exclamation mark and the words "An error has occurred! Port xxxxx does not appear to be open." Why is the utorrent program showing my port being open but then when I make it check the browser-site shows the same port being closed? Is there any other (perhaps more reliable) method to check whether port in question is open or not? Another thing - I've got a 2MB download/512K upload connection. However, my downloads on utorrent only manage to max out at a measly ~240K in total. I've tested several files now and the reason's obviously not lack of seeders. OK I wasn't expecting downloads at 2MB/s (though I'd love that!)..... but I had been expecting my download speed to be at a reasonable moderate 512K - 1MB......... Is a download speed of only 240K normal for a 2MB/512K internet connection or is it a signal showing that something is wrong? Thanks!
