    Is it possible to make this piece of garbage work with torrents or any other p2p?

    I have tried every 54G firmware out there, right now I am using tofu 12, i get disconnects every now and then when not using any p2p, but if i fire one up, i lose connection every few minutes, the router does a reboot and takes quite a while to come back.

    I have tried several different startup scripts, and i reset nvram before flashing new bios.

    I used the 11mb router before this one (dont member the model) and it worked fine, I wanted the speed increase and instead all i get is dropped connections.

    What BT client?

    What did you try?

    In DD-WRT all I had to do, was go under IPFilter settings
    increase connection limit, decrease connection timeouts
    Also had to do port-forwarding step for BT client to talk both ways.

    Then in client software set some reasonable limits. I use Azureus software. Like not letting it open up unlimited number of connections, 150 or so seemed reasonable.

    I increased connections and timeout in nvram

    hmm, i removed bitcommet and switched to azureus and i have been downloading for about 12 hours now with no problems.

    maybe bitcommet is just a piece of crap?

    That's what I have heard.

    I assume you *decreased* timeout right? I dropped from 3600 to 1200. The connection table is there to keep track of your connections. But something idle for 1200 seconds is probably not going to start again soon in my usual usage, so I let it expire to keep room in the table.

    I also recommend in Azureus settings, throttling it's max upload and download speed to something less than your real speeds. About 80-90% works well. This leaves you a bit of extra space so when you go to hit a web page you get quick response. The strength of BitTorrent is it downloads while you are asleep anyway so who cares file takes 2 hours or 2.1 hours?

    i removed all the stuff that was in my startup script, so i am pretty much using tofu 12 clean right now, and everything seems to be going fine.
