Default utorrent showing ports closed

i am using DG834N which i bought a couple of weeks ago, before that i used a DG834GT for 18 months without any problems whatsoever on utorrent , tick always showd in client and always showed ports open in the speedguide test, since i set up the 834N i am getting the tick in utorrent but speedguide test always shows that my ports are closed anyone got any ideas about this thanks ,,,simmo

if app is working then I would not worried about it. you can try disable SPI in the router settings if that helps but seems in stealth mode so port scan is not effective to external source but it is accepting the inbound rules

Don't forget to check the settings of any software firewalls on the PC.
