Windows 7: Problems with network bridge and utorrent in Win 7

Problems with network bridge and utorrent in Win 7

I am having some issues with Windows 7 and my network bridge. I currently have it setup like this...modem -> router -> laptop -> wireless bridge. The problem is whenever I have the bridge enabled, the port I have open for utorrent is blocked. When I disable the network bridge the port is open again. I have the port open on my router so I dont think thats the problem. When the bridge is disabled, I use a static IP and everything works well. When the bridge is enabled and I use a static IP, nothing works (not even firefox) and if I don't use a static IP utorrent gets blocked but Firefox works fine.

I was running WinXP before I moved to Win7 and there was never a problem...I could have the bridge enabled and it wouldn't effect my utorrent at all.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks kindly!

Your dns is incorrect in the static ip setting.

Use 208.67.222.222 for the preferred dns instead.

Thanks for the response. I entered that address for my preferred DNS and it did not work. Then I entered it as the alternate DNS and it now works. utorrent is open and my internet works too.

How did you know what to do? how did you know to use 208.67.222.222?

I know networking and why problems exist.

That's a public dns server easily found by Googling.
