Help with Bittorrent port fowarding
May 9, 2008 9:40 PM Subscribe
Just got Verizon FIOS and the wifi access point sucks. So I disabled the wireless portion on the fios router and plugged in a linksys wifi router. Wireless is now kick a** but my bittorrent is slow. I need help with port forwarding.

The fios router is 192.168.1.1/24 and the new access point is 192.168.1.2/24 with the wireless network being 192.168.2.0 and the computer I want to torrent on is 192.168.2.101. On the fios router (.1) I have set port forwarding for port 65473 to forward to the linksys(.3). Then on the linksys, port forward for 65473 to computer (.2.101).
>> Fios Router 192.168.1.1 > Linksys to Fios Interface 192.168.1.3 > AP 192.168.2.1 >MacBook 192.168.2.101
This doesn't work. If I plug into fios router and get into the .1.1 network, it works. How can i get wireless bittorrent working?
Fios router is an Actiontech MI424-WR. Wifi is Linksys WRT160N.
