    So if I connect the computer directly to the cable modem, i don't have issues with connection, xrumer works like a charm.

    As soon as I connect the Belkin N+ wireless router, connecting the same computer to the router (Wired), I get a connection drop as soon as i start running Xrumer. My other laptop that's wireless connecting to the same router still have working connection, no problem there.

    Last night I found out there's a Built-In firewall on the router, by going to

    http://192.168.2.1

    So I disabled it, I was able to run Xrumer through the night without any connection issues. I was so happy...

    This morning I tried another xrumer project, same exact problem, connection dropping as soon as Xrumer starts running...

    I am not using any proxies, public or private.

    I am pulling my hair out on this, please share some light, Xrumer experts.. please....

    It sounds like you have your Firewall enabled on your laptop (Windows Firewall)

    i verified, the windows firewall is turned off.

    I am also running free version of AVG... no special settings there.

    Most probably: max. number of connections of your router.

    Read the data sheet of your router.
    Enable/Read router log. You might find there strange errors... google for the error message in a forum to be sure/RTFM.

    Try to start XR with a low number of threads and step by step increase the number of threads.

    * Also, maybe not related, but this was an issue in my case: is DNS resolving working for many requests? Just browse some pages while XR is runnig... does it take much time until you get the page?

    test doing it again without the router

    It's possible that a bunch of people you spammed complained, and your ISP is now blocking XRumer type activity, as you weren't using a proxy.

    Yes, the problem is the belkin. I also had one once. It has a limited number of connections it can open. Try to lower your simultaneous connections... (it is the same for torrents/filesharing). :)

    Well with your router there might be few things:

    a) How's your cable internet pluged in the router (in that slot that says WAN?) - pretty common problem - been working this for about a year
    b) add a firewall rule for xrumer, don't just disable it, you're wide open for me to hijack your key (kidding)
    c) add a firewall rule on your local firewall (comodo, AVG, windows firewall, zonealarm, etc)
    d) try turning off the DHCP server and manualy set IP addresses on your PC and laptop - might be an ip conflict that is disconnecting you
    e) it might be your local firewall + av (if you have that), sometimes when it identifies a threat it terminates network connections
    f) just connect directly over the night when you sleep and let xrumer run in peace
