smfoxx Posted January 22, 2008 Report Share Posted January 22, 2008 Hey there, I'm having huge problems with utorrent/internet connection.I'm running Windows Vista, and if I run Utorrent (I've got 1.7.6) then the first problem I arrive at is that the torrents won't download (yellow triangle, ETA infinity, 0.0%, etc). So I thought it was a portforwarding or firewall issue (I run Windows Firewall, and I have McAfee Antivirus, but I don't think that McAfee is running a firewall). I set Windows Firewall to allow utorrent, so no problem. That didn't help at all, then I noticed an even bigger problem. Not only will the torrents not download, but my computer WILL NOT connect to the internet when utorrent is running. After I noticed this, I went and followed the portforward.com guides according to my router. I have scoured the internet looking for a solution, and I cannot find anything.A couple of notable pieces of information:I am in China, but that has not prevented downloading in the past, or on other computers here in China.I am always running Vidalia/Tor/PrivoxyMy router is a Linksys WRT54GI did notice that my router and McAfee have conflict issues documented in your FAQ, but they didn't seem to apply here, so the only idea I can think of is that it's Tor/Privoxy/Vidalia. But those also have never prevented downloading for me in the past.In the meantime, I have returned everything to the settings pre-portforwarding and uninstalled utorrent to start fresh upon hearing some advice.Thanks in advance for your help.EDIT: Also, utorrent frequently crashes when it is running at the same time as internet explorer, or for some other reason. It usually comes when I try to use the built in Speed Guide. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
