A Globelines technician just came over this morning to replace our ProLink modem with a Siemens SE260 DSL modem. Excited as I was with the Siemens brand, to my dismay I found that it had limited port forwarding features. Anyway, I searched far and wide over the Internet and didn’t find clear-cut answers. Making use of what I learned, I got my uTorrent to give a green light. Here’s how I did it:

  1. Point your browser to 192.168.1.1
  2. Click on Status tab
  3. Go to the WAN sub-tab
  4. Take note of your public IP address in the resulting page
  5. Go to Advance tab
  6. USER/PASSWORD is user/user
  7. In the Port Forwarding sub-tab, enter the following information:
  • Port Forwarding: ENABLE
  • Protocol: BOTH
  • Comment: utorrent
  • Make sure the ENABLE checkbox is CHECKED
  • Local IP Address: [the local IP address of your computer, something like 192.168.1.x]
  • Local Port: [the listening port of your uTorrent client, like 12345-12345]
  • Remote IP Address: [the public IP address that you took note of earlier]
  • Remote Port:[the SAME listening port of your uTorrent client, like 12345-12345]
  • Interface: ANY
  1. Click APPLY CHANGES
  2. Click ADD

You DON’T need to COMMIT/REBOOT. It will change your public IP address.

That’s it, you’re good to go! Since the public IP address is dynamic, I think you’ll have to do this all over again, just changing the Remote IP Address field. It doesn’t sound too good, but anyway, it works 🙂
