    I want to use BT downloading software to download something. Could you please teach me how to setup my WRT54G v3's prot forward or triggering. I use DHCP, so it's better to use port triggering?

    The HyperWRT 2.1b1 firmware has Adjustable Transmit Power feature. I know the stronger the better for connection. But will it hurt our health? Which power percent is safe enough for us?

    Thank you all.

    port triggering won't work properly with P2P apps as the outgoing connection could be on any port really (i believe this is specified in the torrent) you'd be better off forwarding a port to your machine and using static DHCP entries.

    any power you can get out of the wrt shouldn't hurt your health to any great extent however if you turn it up too much it will hurt your router...
    i've heard 87mw or so to be acceptable... i've ran mine at 250mw before but for short periods of time and it doesn't seem to have had any ill effect on my router, but I usually only have hit that high for 15 mins or so anyway.

    Thank you.

    Now, i'm using port triggering. But i think i did wrong even the BT speed is fine.
    Triggered Range Forwarded Range
    Application Start Port End Port Start port End Port Enable
    5000 to 50000 5000 to 50000

    could you please give me some detail of port forwarding? Which port should i forward? I think the people who BT software always use different ports, but the port forward can not set a port range.

    i'm only farmiliar with the client I use, if you use bit comet you can set what incoming port you want to use and then just forward that one port, check the options in your client.
