I just downloaded an FTP program (SMART FTP) and want to learn how to download games. But everytime I put in the ftp site, it doesn't workl. Does anyone know how ftp works or has a site where I can learn how to use ftp?

Have you tried your FTP client's "Help" menu?

yes I did, but it didn't help. I still can't connect to any of the sites. Also, I can't connect to Kazaa or Yahoo games. I do not know why, but it happened ever since I installed my new router (Inexq ISW054U) and I checked the website so see if there was anything I could do. Nothing helped. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe those particular FTP sites you're attempting to connect to are down.

Your best bet would be to contact the manufacturers of your router and ask them for help. Explain what you are attempting to do, although I highly doubt they'll be willing to help you if you mention Kazaa :)

If you have WINXP's personal firewall on it will stop this. That is if you are even using WINXP which I don't know from your request.

Find it here: "local area network " properties and advanced tab.

Also it should be blocked by your router a specific port will need to be enabled. Check the manufacturers CD for a manual or their web site.
