    im sorry if this is in the wrong section but im having a heck of a time trying to get my vuze and ichat to work. i cannot download anything when im at school on vuze or video chat. i beilieve it has to do with the port forwarding of my router (correct me if i am wrong). i can get into where to configure the setting of the router, but idk what exactly to do. i have a time warner cable supplied router, its an ambit DOCSIS 1.0/1.1/2.0 Compliant. thanks in advance

    Your school might be blocking the necessary ports for Torrent and iChat, it is common to reduce heavy network loads. As for the router all are different, find the brand or model of router you have and search for a guide online.

    Call Time Warner and ask them about it. Often, ISP-provided routers can't be modified by the end user.
