Default IT Gurus: Need your help on this...

I am using UK based BT's broadband internet service. I don't need to use any modem/router myself. All I do is plug my ethernet cable into a LAN socket on the wall. Now I have been trying to access TCP ports while running bittorent/mirc. What happens is my internet connection 'dies' in a minute and then when I try to restart/turn off my PC XP hangs! Switching on the pc reconnects it to the internet but the problem remains. By typing in default gateway address into a browser, I checked that my common ports like 6881, 6667 etc are all blocked.

Although I can view status of various network ports, I am unable to log in in order to unblock these ports. SO my question is, do i have the right to change settings on this type of 'web based' firewall or is it upto the ISP's network admins?

use a different port that is not blocked. any free port that is not used by another program will work.

go to www.portforward.com for more info.

now, configure your bittorent client (i'm sure about Azereus dont know about other). Put the same port number in the client and configure it. problem should be solved.
