      Disabling UPnP and it's effects

      As a victim of the UPnP bug, and the 15 minute disconnect, and the 15.5db attenutation bug, I had to disable UPnP in order to get my router to actually work. As I mainly play online games and surf the web, this has caused me no problems as of yet. However, having used P2P and torrent programs (Soulseek and BitComet) it is apparent that not everything is going to work as easy as the web.

      I have looked at the Port Forwarding topic on these forums, but in the link in the first post, the page is gone. I vaguely followed the instructions for BitComet on portforward.com, but it still only downloaded a torrent at 1-5 Kb/s. And just to make sure it wasn't the torrent, I downloaded one that had around 6000 seeders, and it did the same.

      Is there any advice anyone can give me on doing this? The help on portforward seems to indicate I need a static IP address, and while I leave my router on 24/7, I don't think I have one?

      Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

      Sorry but Connect has traffic shaping for P2P. You may see improved speeds if you use a client that sorts encryption but you still wont be able to max out your connection.

      Moved to the P2P forum.

      Traffic shaping? Soulseek is the only P2P client I am using at the moment, it seems to be downloading fast enough but looks a little iffy at times. Would other P2P clients work better?

      Also, how would I go about getting a torrent program to download at more than 5kb/s? I'm hoping that doing the port forwarding properly would fix it but from my short (and not very satisfying) experience with Sky Broadband so far, something tells me it's gonna take more than that.
