    If you have enabled firewall in OSX, you need to allow the proper ports.

    The firewall is in System Preferences -> Sharing -> Firewall. Click the "New" button to add more ports to it.

    The same you've set in Azureus connection settings (In Azureus, it's in Tools -> Options -> Connection, I think).

    Worked for me and my old-old 3Com 3C510.

    Cheers

    Heeellllp

    I I went to the postforward.com site because i'm having a NAT problem on Azureus and they told me to start setting up port forwarding on my Linksys WRT54G router and i followed all the steps up until when they told me i needed to set up a static Ip address...because one of the final steps for setting up this static IP address is that i need to know my DNS server...they suggested i call my ISP to get that information but when i called (Comcast) they told me that they wont release that information unless i have a business account. Is their any way i can get my DNS server information without them? Or anyway to setup my port forwarding without a static IP address? Or anyway to fix my NAT problem a different way? Please Please can anyone help me? Please any help is much appreciated.

    Port forward is from the router to a FIXED IP address on your lan.
    Your DNS has nothing to do with it, unless you need users on the Internet to find you
    in which case you need DnyDNS.com solution.

    You first FIX the IP address of your system, either by a manual IP setup, or by
    mapping the NIC card MAC address into a fixed IP address every time your system
    comes online.

    Then you access the router and Port Forward ports xx,yy,zz to the fixed address :)

    You do not need any support from your ISP either.

    I'm a noobie :/

    Ok thank you for helping but um you lost me completely lol. I was getting the yellow smiley on azureus and so like they told me here on one of the forums to go to portforward.com. But the problem is while i was trying to configure my IP address the computer asked for "DNS Servers" and i wasn't able to get that info from my ISP. And when i did it without that info my internet stopped working.

    from any system that has working browser access to webpages,

    just get a command prompt and enter ipconfig /all
    the dns address will be shown :)

    oops; soory, I lost focus that you're on a Mac!

    upper left Apple icon, click and pull down to System Preferences

    click network
    the DNS setting should be shown.
