DetritusMaximus Posted January 27, 2008 Report Share Posted January 27, 2008 Greetings...this is my debut uTorrent post.I've been using uTorrent successfully now for the past few weeks on an HP Presario notebook with XP Home.I use a Gateway 2Wire modem model no. RG2701HG-00 which allows 4 computers to be connected. I am, however, not currently utilizing its wireless capabilities, and I do not use a router. I get a speed of 100.0 Mbps from my DSL ISP provider, and online speed tests generally show a 43xx kbps download speed and 500 kbps upload speed--although this drops down whenever I'm logged into eMule.I initially set up my uTorrent preferences as follows: Connection Type xx/100Mbit, Port 59548, Affected Settings showing 11200 kB/s, Upload Slots 50, Connections 125, Connections (global) 1000, max active torrents 25, max active downloads 25, and Encryption not enabled.I left the green check marks in Enable uPnP port mapping, Enable NAT-PNP port mapping, and Add uTorrent to Windows Firewall Exceptions...which were the default settings to begin with.Port forwarding test is always functioning normal, with the ticked green circle at the bottom of the screen.However, today when I attempted to run uTorrent into a second HP Pavilion notebook with Vista, which is hooked up and running simultaneously with the Presario, the problems began.I used the identical settings as with the Presario, but got the "ERROR port not forwarded" message. I tried changing to different ports, but still got the error message. Disabling Norton Internet Security didn't make any difference, either. I gave up and shut down the computer. The next day, I found that I was unable to connect to the internet at all. Troubleshooting with my ISP's tech on the phone led us to discover that some of my drivers had crashed, namely: NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller-Radialpoint Miniport (x86); WAN Miniport (IP)-Radialpoint Miniport (x86); WAN Miniport (IPv6)-Radialpoint Minipoint (x86); and the Security Services Driver.We had to do a System Restore in order to re-instate the aforementioned drivers.Clearly I must have made an error or overlooked something when attempting to use uTorrent in this second notebook. Do I assume it had something to do with enabling or disabling something in Norton Internet Security or in Vista itself, or must I re-configure my uTorrent setup differently?Yes, I looked through your FAQ but didn't find anything that addressed this issue specifically. Excuse me if I missed it.Can one of you tech whizzes help me out on this one?I suppose I could just leave uTorrent exclusively on the Presario XP Home notebook, but it's 6 years old now, and I'd like to get uTorrent on board the Pavilion as a backup. Besides, the Pavilion has much more hard drive memory than the Presario.Thanks for your assistance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
