    Hello I was trying to tweak out my dd-wrt settings better for utorrent but I seem to have created more problems than I have fixed. I followed the procedure below. Everything seems more responsive now but the problem I have is that I can no longer connect to my computer on the internal network through vnc. Another problem I have is that computers attached to the network keep dropping their aol instant messanger connections. If someone could tell me a workaround or a way to back step this and return the router to before it would be great, thx.

    * Do not use the web interface method as it cuts off part of the commands.
    * Enable SSH (Admin, Services) as we are going to use the NVRAM method @
    * Login to the router with an SSH client (root/your password).
    * Put the following commands into the SSH client.

    ~ # nvram set rc_startup="
    > echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts
    > echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses
    > echo '600 1800 120 60 120 120 10 60 30 120' > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeouts
    > "
    ~ # nvram commit
    ~ # reboot
    The system is going down NOW !!
    Sending SIGTERM to all processes.

    You don't need to add any startup scripts.

    Just goto Administration->Management->IP Filter Settings

    Set your maximum ports to 4096, and both TCP and UDP timeouts to 600. Save Settings then Reboot.

    The above suggestion from swinn should do the job. I'm running utorrent, surfing, and even transferrering files all works without any delays
