hi everyone, i'm new here, but quite computer litterate, however, i do have a problem i just cant solve. I am using a D-link WBR 2310 router. i am using windows xp. now, my whole objective was to port forward in order to use utorrent at best speeds. so, i followed all the instructions on portforward dot com created a static ip with gateway, subnet and dns servers int he tcp settings, i then setup the router to port forward to utorrent and sure enough, utorrent worked like a charm. however, when i opened internet explorer and tried to connect to a site, it was as if the net was not connected, I cant visit any webpage at all, however,as i said,, u torrent now works like a charm, i just cant browse the web. now ive found a little info and someone said something about triggering the port in dlink setup under application rules for internet explorer. I havent seen much to this theory, and im not sure what abbreviation for internet explorer to use in the dlink setup as i use utrnt1 utorrent... i also dont know what port or firewall port to set. if anyone can help me with this , it would be greatly appreciated, i jsut wanna forward some ports to utorrent and beable to browse, use msn and all like usual. thanks alot.
