Was useing mx reguarly without the router, no problems what so ever........I am already in enough peoples ignore list because i keep 5 on the queue up list for tradeing purposes, I have the bandwidth to do that many and more with no problem. Yesterday I finally hooked up my belkin router and hard wired the computer in. Downloads seem to work fine but cannot seem to start any uploads. I do beleieve My windows settings and firewalls are set properly because I have used this program reguarly with very little hitches, who is function, hammer and moni, dont seem to work to well, but am most worried about uploads. I have disabled the firewall function on the modem itself, but still does not work. I know you guys are extremely helpful with loads of isses and I would like to keep this setup if I could, I am without a building network without if I cannot correct it.
