Vodafone HG659 vs uTorrent

Message 1 of 3 (83 Views)

So I'm awaiting my fibre connection and have been sent this modem/router. I decided it might be good to start using it with my current ADSL connection and it pretty much worked straight out of the box. It is a wired connection to my PC, even the wireless works fine with my phone... EXCEPT when I try to run uTorrent on the computer. When uTorrent is open, I can no longer web browse and uTorrent will not download. When I exit out of uTorrent, low and behold, I can instantly start browsing again... No restart, nothing! Trolling through here, I decided to try the following connection settings: http://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Modems-Wi-Fi/Read-me-Converting-your-HG659-to-enable-ADSL/m-p/172... with no change. I find that my older Vodafone Station SHG1500 works without fail. I even tried the port forwarding to no avail: http://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Modems-Wi-Fi/Read-Me-HG659-Port-Forwarding/m-p/117724/highlight/t...

 

Is there a fix to this?

Thanks for the post. When did you get the modem - can you check which version of firmware you're running - B026 just released with a fix on Port Forwarding.

I got the modem earlier this week, and have updated its firmware to B026 as instructed. Even reset to factory, but firmware remains B026. Have gone back to SHG1500 Station as it just works better.
