    Hey there, i wonder if you guys can help me. I have the BT Voyager 2500V as of yesterday permitting me download speeds at 8MB. However, since upgrading to the new router, my BitTornado program which i use to download torrents doesn't really engage any decent speed above 20kb/s and the light stays on yellow as opposed to moving to green.

    The message for a permanent yellow light is: "You have not received any incoming connections from others. It may only be because no one has tried. If you never see the status light turn green, it may indicate your system is behind a firewall or proxy server. Please look into routing BitTorrent through your firewall in order to receive the best possible download rate."

    Before setting up the new router, i had a normal USB modem where i could download at 2MB and there was no problem in the light going green.

    So...any suggestions? Rep at stake!

    regards

    Can you get to the routers set up page? You should be able to by connecting to your host name in your browser (Usually 192.168.0.1)

    Ah, i can't configure the router until my service is activated completely apparently. i couldn't log-on before and i've just been informed that there's been a delay in the processing of my bt broadband talk so until that comes through, my username and password won't work...i'll post again when it does if i'm still having a problem. Thanks.

    regards
