BT Home Hub

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey everyone,

i have recently got my hands on the BT Home Hub and i have recently also gathered some problems. i host alot of games for me and my friends over the internet aswell as hosting a FTP server to share files with my friends, when i have started to try host anything now my friends cannot connect, aswell as the hub crashing and causing some kind of winsock error problem. so i unblocked the ports, by port forwarding when i do this still no joy, aswell as my bitcomet being blocked too so i can torrent download as fast. i have now also removed the firewall but at the bottom of bitcomet it is still blocking the port and when i host a game no one else can join it.

anyone have any ideas on where i go from here because i am lost, i have turned off the firewall and unblocked the ports and i have not been able to host anything.

if someone can help me out it will be appreciated very much

I suggest you buy yourself a router, the home hub is known to have ALOT of problems and firmware problems. The speed is appauling. Mine is being used as a doorstop (It sucks at that too)

problem is i am using the broadband talk around my house as i get the cheaper calls, when it wants it will work but when it doesn't then thats when it gets annoying and it rarely works,

i rang bt up for advice and they want me to "pay" for them to tell me how to port forward when i have already done it and it isn't working...

great? hell no i aint paying £9.99 for a service i "wont" use.

i smell some BS from BT

Have you taken a look at the application sharing on the hub and maybe toyed with the firewall setting? For me it was simple when it came to torrents. I went to application sharing on the hub, added ABC ( Another bittorrent client) and used the recommended ports which are 6881-6889

yep, bit comet the client i use uses different ports which are specified in the settings, i have turned the firewall off on the router and still no joy. the otherday i hosted ventrilo no problem, then 10min later router reset itself and configured ventrilo to a different computer, and punt'd everyone off my server.
