Hey i dont know if anyone else uses the program bittorrent, but here is my problem. To get the max download speeds, i need to foward some ports through my firewall so others can connect to me. I have the windows firewall and i figured how to foward the ports through there, but my internet is connected through my Belkin wireless router and I have a Belkin USB adapter on my laptop. This network probably has a firewall in itself and i need to know how i can port forward through this.

Thanks

You need to go into Network Connections, Local Area Network in XP and assign an IP, instead of using automatic detect. The IP has to fit the allowed range of the router. And don't forget to port forward your Windows firewall for the applications you're using, especially javaw.exe.
