cant use net with utorrent


Recommended Posts

Well, I have been having this issue for a long time now, even after doing a format and reinstallation of everything.

But when utorrent is running, I am unable to browse the net, when I try to open opera, or select a site from my bookmarks I get the 'unable to locate server' message.

Anyone know why this is?

yes, i do have port forwarding set (Dlink 502T), i also use zone alarm. however it is set to allow utorrent

Definitely. You're not getting what's advertised by your ISP, but that can come from many factors (the easiest I can think of being your location/distance from the ISP's nearest routing center), so there probably isn't much you can do about it. You might want to select xx/64k and increase the upload rate to 6KiB/s.

Ok i got the allmost same problem with utorrent... insteed of the net not comming up it just takes a long time for it to come up, but the funny part is that even when utorrent is not downloading anything it still has that problem.. ok now i got 3342 kbs download and 350 upload, the port is not forward, but that cant be the problem because it still does it when it not downloading anything at all, so no banwidth is being used. so what is the deal and i just uploaded the new 1.7 rc and i still got the same problem..

thanks Mordakai
