    http://wiki.bitcomet.com/help/DHT_Network_in_BitComet

    Ok... as you can read there, DHT (Distributed Hash Tables) uses the same port number, but uses UDP (broadcast; low reliablity) instead of TCP (specific; high reliability). I could write you a paper on this, but in short... DHT-ON = No Tracker Torrents. So long as your connected to 1 peer, you can get more and more.

    So... like I said. Make absolutly sure you forward UDP and allow UDP as well.

    Also, it's kind of NAT related, so have a look at your router's NAT settings and see if anything looks weird. I honestly don't no what to look for there. Networking is not my strong point, and a lot of it has to do with every net card and router and shit seems to work a weeeeee bit different.

    Another thing...
    "The Belkin F5D8230-4 only supports 253 connections -- so make sure that your BitTorrent client is configured so that is does not open more than 100 connections otherwise BitTorrent will LOCK-UP the Router forcing you to reboot."
    Maybe having UDP connections are topping it out too. You might reduce the number of connections in bitComit, and if you went with some insane number like 500 (like me...) when you broke XP SP2's limiter, back that down as well.


    Another suggestion... try to set the router's default DNS's. To do this, go to start, run, cmd, press enter. Type [code]IPCONFIG /ALL[/code] and write down your ISP's DNS server (or call the ISP if they have decent phone service). Now log into your router and go to Internet WAN > DNS. Change from ISP AUTO to manual and enter the DNS in in all instances.

    Providing an update...

    Jakko... if you still have the receipt for that router... take it back. The more I read about it, the more I determine it's quite the rip off. It's basically incompatible with bit torrent, and supposedly FTP doesn't work either. If it's working for you now, fine... but I'm just going to suggest you take it back and get a product that works at full specs.

    Damn... guess I'm never buying a belkin. What a joke.

    Hum... I have a bad feeling that the more range you get, the less reliable a router you'll end up with. However, many routers allow you to turn up the power a bit, at the cost you may knock a month or two off their lifespan. I couldn't tell you which ones allow this... but meh.

    You could make your own with an old compie and some fun with linux... or find a good and reliable old router... or an unreliable old router that people have rewritten the firmware for to run linux. XD

    Think there was a thread about that a while ago in chit chat.

    Other than that, and looking up your current router... I suspect you paid a pretty penny for it. Well if your still in that price range, this one looks like a big badass.

    Honestly, your asking the wrong guy. Hopefully someone else has some recomendations. For now I really got nothing beyond that router. First one I found when I google searched for p2p wireless routers. :P

    The D-Link?

    That was the "other" router I was talking about earlier. =p
    Despite the good reviews it got from NewEgg, it has major connection problems, and is about half the speed of the Belkin. I am currently selling it.
    I will look into the linux-old router thing. I think it was in the "Router on Crack" thread...


    Thanks for all the help.

    sure thing. One more thing... I wouldn't bother with those Pre-N fuckers anymore. They arn't worth it at all at this point. They are based of version 1.0 of the 802.11n draft, which was only 46% (smth like that) accepted. The later 1.06 draft was accepted with over the 75% needed. From what I read, the first real 802.11n's with MIMO (which I believe is part of N standard) are hitting the market this month. Apple just announced their airport card, I know that.

    Point is that if you buy the Pre-N... it'll be useless in about a year. XP

    Note however that these (the N's being released this month) too are just highly probable Wireless N devices. The final ratification of the standard by IEEE isn't set till 2008.
