    portforward.com/ check that site out, it has all the info you need to configure your router for utorrent...

    lately started using it... was downloading tudors a second ago.... no warning signs...very slow..but then could be my lame 384kb/s internet.... the shame :oops:

    wait .... nothing is happening....

    must be a utorrent thing

    Im still downloading just slowly

    That message is usually caused by a firewall, check a windows/firewall update hasn't deleted uTorrent from the exceptions, also a router update can do this, is your router supplied by your isp?
    As a precaution try rebooting router and PC 1st

    right click on whatever you are downloading on the Utorrent program go to 'Bandwidth allocation' & make sure it is set to > normal. Then go a little further down the list to ''set download limit'' & make sure it is at the top of the list on 'Unlimited'

    you need to forward the ports on your router... there are plenty of guides about on the web, just google it

    Well the question is did it all work fine before?, if this is first time then there are two options
    1, set up port forwarding from router, good idea to remove it after finished
    2. Port forwarding is not necess if you have uPNP set to on and your router supports it properly check it in utorrent preferences and the router.

    That looks like a spyware/adware infection!, what is trying to send you there?

    Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.
    A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.

    Checking port

    Error! Port 4 does not appear to be open.

    Please see [url]www.portforward.com[/url] for more information about how to map a port.

    Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com (72.20.34.145) in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website's IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5).

    so where did you find this utorrent port checker? and please try to answer some of the other questions.. i know it can be tricky but an attempt would be beneficial.

    i see where you got it from now, personally i wouldn't pay for it, sure if you look the answers are on other sections of that site, not sure if utorrent would approve of their selling tactics, don't think theyused to do that

    When i click on the error there is a button to test port then that comes up.

    All was fine before today, i have a bt bussiness router
    My firewall is allowing utorrent.
    I have rebooted several times today pc and router.

    Thanks guys i have googled port forwarding but most you have to pay and not sure what site to trust so will just leave slow for a bit.

    Go Here > portforward.com/eng…htm

    And choose your router, and then choose Utorrent....the rest should then follow.
    The thing you were being asked to pay for is a program that does all this for you by the looks of it...

    portforwarding guide for utorrent and comodo firewall

    portforward.com/eng…htm

    with my bt home hub i have to go into the advanced setup and a page called application sharing, in there i pick
    the application (ABC=a bitorrent client) and assign it to my PC, not hard if you know how to access the router.
    BT have maybe updated the firmware on your router and now it needs it done manually,
    While you are there switch off the uPNP, bit of a security risk that
