View Full Version : Bittorrent problems with broadband modem

14-09-2006, 12:49 AM
Hi all,

I recently signed up with xtra broadband and use the Dlink DSL-502T modem.
I use uTorrent for downloading files and I'm having a port forwarding problem. Apparently my port isnt open, I suspect the external modem is acting as firewall or whatever. I have a software firewall and worked fine with dial up.

It told me to goto this site http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DSL-502T/Utorrent.htm

But im having real difficulty and are confused.

Help would be appreciated

Thank you

I have to gointo my modem's admin page.
So i typed in my ip in to the address bar and it asked for a username and password. my xtra details dont work.

The default username & password for the dsl-502t are admin & admin.
In uTorrent I would set it to use a certain port and not a random one each time you open it. Mine is set to 51128
Follow the instructions on portforward.com to get the port open.
