do i need the ip address the same as my routers default getaway.
So sorry for any confusion I just want to make sure that i have my port forward set up correctly,and that my internet is set up so i can get optimum speed .
I should mention as well that there are 2 desktop pcs and 2 lap tops using the 1 internet connection ,the other laptop and desktop are very slow to load web pages .Is it because there are to many pcs on the one connection.
Thanks again Rob
No, The IP addresses are not to be the same as your router (default Gateway)
Try running steam, and U torrent on your pc, If everything works, chances are, you do not need to open any ports for these programs. I've got Steam installed, and i did nothing on my Router for it, Same with U torrent, when I used to use it.
4 Devices on one connection is fine. What speeds are you getting from your Broadband?.
Are all the PC's/laptops running UTorrent?. If you're downloading or seeding (uploading) this will cause your connection to run slow.
