Hey guys, does anyone know how to set up port forwarding on a linksys wireless router? does port forwarding really make that much of a difference to the speed of downloading torrent files? Thanks

yes it makes a huge difference
log into your router using the supplied ip address and password that your router gave you.

go into port forwarding or routing or whatever it is called, create a 'profile' for your bittorrent program, select your ports (the higher the better), and then set your bittorrent program to use those ports.

you can also use the forum search to find the answer to this it has been covered many times

Closing, duplicate thread, please use your other one. And in the future, don't crosspost....

This is also in the wrong forum.
