Now, I can't seem to start the seeding process again. No previous modem issues. Modem was up for 92 days prior to this reboot.

Hi Everyone,

New to Utorrent and file sharing but not my first time at the rodeo!

Yes, I've read the Instructions and FAQs at the Utorrent website and the 'Rules' for this forum.

In addition, I've searched this and other forums plus Google but the information I have found either does not apply or is over my head [sometimes I need a little handholding].

Any information or help will be greatly appreciated and I welcome any question, comments, suggestions or concerns.

As per my post, everything downloaded ok and the files are fine. This was a seeding issue with apparent complications from the modem and maybe the computer.

So far I've DL 3 things and only had the seeding issue with the first file. Everything seems ok now and I was just wondering if there was a way to re-start the seeding after the DL process is over.

If no other info is available then I consider the issue closed.

Thanks for the responses,
