Hey there. First of all, thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help out.

Okay so here's the problem. I frequently use online games and download programs like uTorrent and Limewire, and all of a sudden I can't access my router through 192.168.1.1 anymore! Ports which were open seem to have closed so my downloads are crawling and the lag monster has got me!

I really need help, so any advice or ideas would be much appreciated.

If you don't have a bu-ku of settings, try holding in the reset button on the firewall for 30 seconds or so to restore the system defaults.... then try accessing it through the web panel

Are you running a software firewall as well?

I have the basic XP pro firewall on, but the ports are forwarded for that.

I'll give the reset option a go and tell you what happens.

Resetting my router didn't work, deactivating my firewall didn't work either.

Also, when I open CMD and type ping 192.168.1.1 and tracert 192.168.1.1, both recognize that it's there. I'm using a BT Voyager router, and all its settings come up as they should.

EDIT: Sorry about the triple post.
