I am having difficulty getting my uTorrent to work right even after following the guide provided in the forums. URL: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992

I'm clueless now about whats the next step i should take. Can anyone provide some assistance.

Below are some info:

Color of Net work status: Yellow and sometimes Red

Net.max_halfopen: 8

Operation System: Windows Vista

Security Software: Windows Firewall, Mcafee VirusScan 8.5i

Modem Model: Prolink Hurricane 9000/C

I suspect that ISP throttles BitTorrent.

In Speed Guide (CTRL+G), you may need to use xx/256k or slower setting.

Net.max_halfopen probably should be lowered to 4.

There may be issues with your motherboard's networking hardware/drivers.

Have you searched online to see if your modem (Prolink Hurricane 9000/C) contains a firewall or router that needs to be configured or disabled?

Thanks Switeck for the reply

I did a test with my friend who has the same ISP. Using the same torrent, he has no problem downloading at a speed of 100+

I have check out online. My modem is actually a normal modem only and it does not have a firewall in built.

I have set the settings u mention too. But still it show "Not connectable" in my uTorrent. What could actually been the issue?
