When I run the setup wizard, under the network section I get the following message: Port not open (you are still able o download). Does anyone know how to fix this or what is causing it? An help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Firewall software or router causes it.
Configure them properly to fix it.

I think I have the same problem. I have Red icon in the middle at the bottom of the Bittorent screen and when I hoover my mouse pointer over it, it says, "Not connectable. A firewall/router is limiting your network traffic. You need to open a port to......"

I know how to get into my router config. I have Motorola ATT DSL router, model # NVG510. Can you please instruct me to configure this router to open a port?

Previously, I had a Linksys router and was able to configure port-forwarding with the instructions provided in some forums.
Thanks in advance

Do NOT use their utility, its consistency is low enough to be not worth using.

I have the same problem, but have no idea how to get at my firewall or router.
