    The settings still say UPnP enabled each morning but I have to click on 'enable' to get it going again.

    I will test that in a minute by powering off the modem.

    Power down & see if there is a way to read back the actual modem settings, not the communication program settings. Sometimes a utility program comes with the modem software.

    OK I powered the router off for 30 seconds.
    Restarted Azureus and Bingo no NAT error and the router says that UPnP is enabled.
    So it is not a power dip/restart which is causing it to disable UPnP

    Are you running a firewall? Maybe the firewall is being dumb (especially ZoneAlarm at the moment).

    Ok... good start...

    I was looking into the network card settings in Control Panel (Win XP) & noticed a setting that allows the modem to power-up the computer. Apparently the computer checks the modem from time-to-time & they advise you to turn it off for say laptops. Check what setting you have & if it's on, try un-ticking this. There could be some interference here.

    Try turning this off.

    A very real possibility, Marmite. Firewalls can play silly games with routers. eMule has a way to force the ports open through the router - but, it is a manual thing.

    Running XP Pro but Control Panel does not have a network card settings and I cannot find it in Network Connections

    Control panel - Administrative tools - computer management - device manager - network adapters - double-click adapter - tab "power management" - unclick "allow computer management to turn off this device to save power"

    (wasn't the box below it which reads "allow device to bring computer out of standby" , switch this off anyway)

    Yeeeeeep Haaaaaaaaa
    It's running fine now.

    This really is an excellent forum.
    I tried for a year but could never get torrents to work properly.
    I would never have found Azureus or fathomed out the shut down problem unless you guys had told me.

    Thanks

    That's great news. My new 1 MB link is giving me this Azureus status line:




    I think I'm gonna need a bigger disk...

    What were you getting on your previous connection RDN.
    I think I am going to up grade to 1mb if you say it's worthwhile.

    I'm in the process of downloading a 3.5 GB twins sex special.
    About 20 sets of twins getting dirty.
    I'm not sure why anyone would want that.

    My DL speeds are slow.
    I'm on a 256/128k connection and at the very limit of the physical distance from the exchange/DSLAM or whatever it is called.

    Normal DL speed is 25k but I can only get 5-10k on a torrent.


    I'm DL some games for my son. 3.5GB for one game

    Most of his stuff seems to be more zoological studies.

    Isn't he the bald git who likes to lead his subjects around on a leash?

    So far I haven't seen any reason to crank up Azureus....

    I'm using uTorrent & eMule to download academic books that are either way too expensive for my pocket, are impossible to get over here, or are out of print.

    So far, I've built up a library that must be close to 150 GB... probably larger than some university engineering libraries.

    I've also found some pretty good finds, many in Russian, which would never be available any other way.

    You can find novels, how to-books, any kind of books... sheet music, guitar tabs...

    You can find all sorts of digital entertainment - movies (even obscure ones), TV (series, documentaries...), porn, music, pictures, audio books, cartoons...

    ...and most software, for whatever purpose.

    Lots of stuff.

    Wow. Cool. Just downloaded Xtorrent for the Mac. Has some nice built-in search capability. Looks like I can download the entire Beach Boys song library....

    Well i guess that's one use of torrents.
    each to their own I suppose.
