    Forward Ports 6881-6999

    Use Port Fowarding to foward ports 6881-6999

    restart computer and router

    then try again... hopefully it will work

    BitTorrent uses specific ports, otherwise you can redirect ports in BitTorrent (Azerus) to ports not used like 16881-16999

    Are you able to get BitTorrent running AT ALL? If not, then the port forwarding suggested above will probably help you.

    If you can get it running, but it goes down after a few hours or so, then you are running into some poorly-chosen Linksys defaults that cannot be reconfigured without third party firmware, and the V5 does not take third party firmware. Call Linksys and see if they will exchange it for an older unit, and then load HyperWRT Tofu (or whatever you prefer, but Tofu works GREAT for me, using VoIP AND BitTorrent, with no problems at all).

    i'm using µTorrent with WRT54G v5 and it works nice. I didn't forward any port to my computer... i guess this is done by µTorrent using UPnP. :)
    My firmware is 1.00.4
