Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

How do i reprogram a 2wire 2071-A - PC Desktops

Answers :

First, get the modem/router's setup and user manual from http://www.2Wire.com/pages/driversanddocumentationsupport.php?did=6

After studying those, read the instructions at

After having done your homework, do the following:

1.) Port Configuration

BitTorrent clients listen (wait for) incoming connections on one of the 65535 ports of a PC, the listening port. The typical port range for the BitTorrent protocol is 6881 - 6999, which means that you should choose a port from this range as the listening port, because many other people configure their firewalls to only accept incoming connections on these ports and might consider exotic values as suspicious. Yes, many ISPs throttle the throughput for file sharing applications, but if they are serious about hindering P2P activities, there are many more sophisticated ways to identify BTs, for instance by means of analyzing traffic, packets, connection and usage statistics, etc., instead of relying on the port number only. Consequently, as long as your ISP does not interfere too much with your file sharing and/or if changing a non-standard port doesn't remedy the problems, stick with the standard port range of 6881 - 6999.

If you do choose a different value, make sure that it isn't the standard port for other Internet activities (FTP, HTTP, SMTP, etc) or even worse, known as the port used by some malware. As a rule of thumb, steer clear of the lower numbers and rather choose a higher number, because the lower ranges are often occupied by other applications. In case you are using a hardware firewall (router) and/or a software firewall, do not activate the 'randomize Ports' function but stick with the same port all the time.

In Opera, the best of all web browsers that comes equipped with an internal BitTorrent client, you can find/modify the port number by entering 'about:config' into the address bar and expanding the BitTorrent section.

2.) Software Firewall Settings

People using the MS Windows XP/Vista firewall go to Options -> Preferences -> Connection and check 'Add µTorrent to Windows Firewall'. People using other firewalls will need to refer to the respective software's documentation.

You will have to allow incoming TCP connections on the port that you chose as the listening port in your BitTorrent software. BitTorrent does not use UDP, so creating a rule for TCP only should do fine.

3.) Router Username and Password

In case your PC is protected by (connecting to the Internet through) a router, a few additional steps need to be taken in order to enable software to establish outgoing connections. Some people who do not have a separate router may find that their modem serves both as a modem and as a router, and this procedure will also apply. This is the case  with the 2Wire HomePortal Gateway 2071.
In your web browser, enter as the address (study the manual or your old notes for a different address) and have your username and password for the Gateway ready. If you can't find them and were given the modem by your ISP, you will have to call them because if you only change the password on your end, you won't be able to connect to the Internet any more. In case you need to change the password,  see the user manual for the respective hints.

4.) Router Firewall Configuration

Enter the Gateway 2071's address in your web browser's address bar, go to Firewall -> Firewall Setings and select the computer for which you want to enable port mapping.  Since 2Wire Gateways offer a maximum of four LAN ports, identifying which of the four computers is the one in question shouldn't be too hard a task.

Now click on the 'Add a new user-defined application' link  beneath the list of pre-defined applications. Define an Application name like "BitTorrent Client" and enter the listening port into both port range fields, for instance from 6885 to 6885 for the TCP protocol. For BitTorrent, everything else can remain blank/none and you click on 'Add Definition'.

The page reloads and after you went 'back', select the freshly added profile from the list of applications and click on 'Add', then on 'Done'.

It's not really that difficult, but router manufacturers somehow always **** at describing the steps properly because they never provide examples for the three typical 'problem cases' online gaming, VoIP and file sharing. Three examples in each category and millions of users wouldn't have to hunt the Internet for clues.

Good luck,

Am a total novice re all the utorrent setup and having lota probs gettin things working not sure if i need to forward a port for a 2wire gateway 2071-A modem from telstra, and or anything else can someone please help me this is driving me nuts some of the computer jargon is way beyond me can anyone help me sort things out would be forever greatful can email me at [email protected] I know this is a real ******* for some of you but have read many manuals posts and guides and am not getting too far.
