Hello everyone, I recently "upgraded" my service with comcast , which came with a router + modem,  anyway... it now seems torrents aren't working , previously they did..... I suspect my new router is blocking them?  Anyone else had this issue?

Comcast I don't believe filters/blocks anything, are you forwarding the proper ports through the router? Are you using your own router and their router at the same time? Their modem should be in bridge mode if that's the case.

I've heard they have been dishing out more copyright notices the past month or two.  :/

nm apparently the router has a minimum security, then medium security which blocks p2p, bitorrent, etc....
