port forwarding?
 
how exactly does this work?

The problem im currently having is related to utorrent and WoW.

whenever i, or my brothers use utorrent, WoW completely stops working, so i updated my wrt54g firmware, and went to port forwarding.

this however didnt work.

is there anyway to prevent utorrent from using these ports?

It has nothing to do with port forwarding it has to do with you and torrents.

Tell utorrent to not use so much upload bandwidth and you'll be fine.

You can also manually set the port that utorrent uses in the options. I use 8888. Don't forget to open it on your router.

under preferences/connections you can set the port. and under bandwidth you can set maximum global upload/download limits.

BrianHanna December 29, 2010 08:21 PM

i set the max download rate at 250kb/s and the problem still arises.

i have a 10mb connection, so that shouldn't be bothering me at all

i would set your max upload rate too cause you may be having a problem keeping a link to the server. and manually set your ports for both, sorry i don't play wow not sure what ports it likes to use.

edit VVVVV yup that's what i do set it to 20kb/s works wonders :thumb:

You could have a 100mbit download link, and if you saturate your upload it's game over.

Set your upload bandwidth to 20K/sec and you should be fine.

The other problem may be related to tcp timeouts, which I'll post up about if throttling your upload doesn't work.

i set it to 1 in utorrent, and it still occurs.

i went into my router and set QoS for my pc at highest.

and i set the ports that wow uses at highest

still occurs.


i set max global peers to 100 (they had it at like 500 before)

problem still occurs.
