Hi,

I don't have that particular router myself, but PortForward.com should be able to help you.

I'm not sure if the GT model is the same as the basic 834 but this is what I did for forwarding ports:

- Click on the services page and then click add custom service.
- Create a bittorrent service, specify a type of TCP/UDP and enter the from and to port range. Then apply it
- Click on firewall rules then click add
- Select the bittottent service from the drop-down list, select the action you want (I use always on) and the IP of the system you want to port forward to. Also set logs to never as your log will fill up very quickly and possibly cause instability. Then apply it.
- On the firewall rules page, click apply to save the change

Your port forarding is then activated. To stop it, untick the enable box and click apply.

you could temporarily add a rule on your GT permitting all inbound connections (this will override the default 'Block All Always' profile) and see what your speeds are like then..

i have this exact problem also, speed tests show speed as would be expected but any sort of p2p downloads are pathetically slow and unless you can wait days on a download there is no point. i have tried many different things like port forwarding etc but to no avail....im assuming its down to traffic shaping?

Temporarily stick your PC in the DMZ (Advanced -> WAN setup ---> default DMZ server) and try your torrents then
