Hello,
I am trying to set up port forwarding so that I can use bittornado faster (I hope). Here's the problem , every time I try and follow the instructions for port forwarding, my internet connection goes "kaput". I suspect that I have set up my router and wireless network incorrectly since I just kinda guessed at everything I was doing at the time. Any help would be much appreciated; remote desktop help would be great. Here is my info:

OS: WIN XP
router: linksys
trying to speed up: BitTornado
Windows firewall is enabled as well as Kaspersky antivirus.


right now, bit tornado will download files but it takes approx. 24 hours on my broadband connection. If I am in the wrong forum to post this - sorry! I would appreciate some advice on where to find help. I am so sick of my laptop being set up in the wrong way due to my incompetence! :whistling:

Thanks,
Emma

Hi. I'm very sorry, but we are not allowed to assist you in pirating any sort of content. Our TOS will not allow us, as well as the fact that it's unethical. Sorry, unless an admin corrects me on this one, I'll have to request that a moderator close this topic.

SK is right that we won't help you here...he just quoted the wrong policy..

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselve legal, most things aquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

If you have any issues with this policy please PM a Moderator or Admin
