You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Seeing how you use "2" as a short cut for "to" you're probably just to impatient to get through it. It's not that hard.

yes i am impatient to get through it! so does anyone have a quick way to do this because i don,t have time to read a ****ing 10-page document on what port forwarding is

this is pissing me off, ive got a 50 kb/s down speed on a torrent where i'm connected to 15 seeds and 58 peers

ok go start > run > cmd > ipconfig

Look for default gateway. (eg mine is 10.0.0.2)

then type that address into your web browser and it will take you to your router settings.

look for port forwarding somewhere.

in utorrent go options > speedguide

make sure the utorrent port is added as a forwarded port.

Its a bit Router specific so post if youre stuck

You gotta create a static IP address first so that when your ISP changes your IP your forward doesn't get lost. Do that by going here http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm

Do you mean when the router reassigns IP's??

Its irrelevant to the ISP.

And yea thats a good idea. (Depending on network setup)
