    I downloaded/installed bittorrent to get a copy of my missing XP_MCE disk. I have set up a static ip, but continue to get an error (port not forwarded) when I check it out. Subsequently my download speed is next to nothing. I've checked, rechecked, changed ports and I continue to get the same error. I've permitted bittorent access through my McAfee firewall and still get the error. When I set up portforwarding for my TrendNet 452brp, all went well. I get no errors. When I return and look at setup, It is there as I set up. Tried 3 different ports and get the same thing? Any advise or reference is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
