Hi guys, first post here, very puzzled.


So this morning my internet was perfectly fine, browsing the web and stuff, when I see a popup from uTorrent saying my ports aren't properly forwarded.

So It links me to the utorrent site where I follow a guide and make my ip static, however then I couldn't connect to the internet, so I rolled it all back and it worked fine.

I also tried adding the utorrent port(32181) to my exceptions list, in the windows firewall, I also unchecked those, and rolled it back.

Now, all day it's been CONSTANT disconnecting from the internet, I've been dcing every 5 minutes for hours now. I've tried restarting pc, and modem and router, I've tried a system restore, which didn't help, and I don't know what else to do.

ALL my phones are dead in the house, too.
None of them work at all, the cordless says lines busy, and the rest just make weird static noise.

Does anyone know what's wrong, or how to fix it?

Hi There

I don't think you will recieve support for peer to peer (p2p) programs here such as uTorrent as they are a well known route for malware / piracy.

However the fact that your phones are dead I would check your ADSL filters are working and that you have the correct number ie 1 for every telco device.

The problem must have stemmed from the fact that I did port forwarding, even though I reversed it.

I haven't downloaded anything that isn't from trusted sites, and utorrent really has nothing to do with anything, cept the fact that it was the cause of me trying to port forward. The real problem is the fact that my pc can't hold a connection, not Utorrent related stuff. :)


also, how might I do those things you mentioned?

Not sure how it works in the USA / Canada but here in the UK we need an ADSL filter for each device connected to the phone line.

For example if I have 2 phones, 1 fax and 1 PC then I'd need 4 ADSL filters connected. Any less and the line will seem dead.

Have you tried disconnecting everything except the phone and see if that works?

Oh, we have those, actually.

I didn't know what you meant, and no, we haven't tried that. I probably should, but I'll have to wait till morning, since my Mom's currently asleep, and I don't exactly know where they are, or what NOT to unplug. :)
