Just bought a new wireless router? and facing problems of not downloading/uploading, port not forwarded, in utorrent or dc++ client? So here's the tutorial to solve this problem easily.

Most of the routers have same settings but have different English word for the same function. Here, I will be configuring ports in DIR-300 router.

NOTE: STRONG DC software will not work with WiFi-Router properly.

1.>> Connect to your router via Wireless or Wired (one of the 4 ports).

2.> Open "Network and Sharing Center" and select "Local Area Connection" or "Wireless Network connection" and press "Details" depending how is your PC connected to router ( Wired or Wireless). 

Note down the [1.] Router IP Address from above. (mine is

Note down the [2.] Your PC's IP Address from above. (mine is

3.>> Now open a browser and type in the address bar of the browser.( This ip address may be different for your Router brand.

A Login Page / Dialog Box of the Router may Welcome you to before making any changes to the Router's settings. You may refer to your Router Manual for Default values of Username and Password.

Some Common Router brand's Default USERNAME and PASSWORD are listed below :-

Dlink:                             Username: admin                  Password: <Blank>
LINKSYS:                     Username: admin                  Password: admin
Iball:                              Username: admin                  Password: 1234
Digisol:                          Username: admin                  Password: password
TP-Link:                       Username: admin                  Password: 1234 
Netgear:                         Username: admin                  Password: password


4.>> A router page then opens like this, and select "Advance" tab above and then select "Port forwarding" option to see screen like this:

5.>> Make entries for each type of application such as DC++ and U-torrent.

6.>> Check the box and name the entry like "dc++" and then from the drop down menu of "Computer NAME" select your pc and press "<<" button.  

(Some routers do not have this function, so you can enter it manually)
Please put your "PC IP Address" which you noted down in Step 2.

7.>> Enter the Starting and Ending port range such as 1000 ~ 1003 for dc++ and 2000 ~ 2003 for utorrent.

8.>> Select Traffic type as "Any" or "UDP/TCP".

9.>> Save settings and allow the router to restart once with finalized settings.

10.>> Now in DC++ settings as shown below select the connection settings and select "Firewall with manual Port forwarding" Enter Ports between 1000 and 1003. for Example, I use 1000,1001,1002,1003, and so on.

11.>> Under External/WAN Ip option press "Get IP" button and copy the same ip(external) to above for the "Bind Address" and click OK to save the settings.

12.> Restart DC++ client to finalize the settings.

>>Port Fowarding done still no Luck <<

This may be caused due to change in local ip-address(192.168.xxx.xxx) Provided by your router.

PLEASE NOTE :- Belkin has this major problem of forgetting the ip address which was given first. Due to which the port forwarding settings do not apply for that previous ip address...So I request you to again see the new Ip-address given by your router to your PC, such as or 192.168.2.xxx....then use that same ip in the "virtual servers" Or "port forwarding Table" settings to make things work again.:")
Choose Static Ip-Adress Scheme to manually assign ipaddress to each PC/Wireless Device.

To Solve this Issue for other Brands : You may use DHCP Reservation Option (not available on Belkin Exclusively) by binding your Mac-ID's from different wireless devices to the fixed Ip-addresses, so that whenever you connect to your router, you will always get the same fixed Ip address.
Here's an example from my Dlink router :
