CadaverTriple6 Posted April 5, 2008 Report Share Posted April 5, 2008 hey whats goin' on, im a bit of a hacking novice but i know just enough to really f*ck things up. i've been using utorrent for a bout a year now and i've mastered the options for my connection, but recently i've been having connection drop problems. when i say connection drop i mean that the local area connection system tray icon pops up with a bubble stating "a network cable is unplugged" but then immeadiatly fixes itself, this happens once every 1-2 minutes but still maintains download speeds of > 150kbs. occasionally (less than once a week) i get a message stating "limited or no connectivity" and i must repair the connection using the local area connection built in troubleshooter.i use windows xp sp2, comcast 4mb connection, linksys befsr41 v4.1 - firmware 1.04.09(yea i know it sux - limited global connection to < 200 because of it) , utorrent 1.7.7, zonealarm, avg anti viruswhat i really need is a good settings configuration that would stop the drop of connection, it seems its the router that is the problem, but i also got a letter from my isp today about distributing some copywritten material(they caught me seeding), so of course i switched to forced encryption and turned of legacy connections for the time being.but if anybody has a good tut laying around could you link me to it, or copy/paste it in here, also if you just know of a tweak that may help let me know, im willing to try almost anything (thats not stupid) because its really annoying that i can either use utorrent or my xbox live but not both, because of the connection drop signing me out once every 1-2 minutesUPDATE: after disable-ing DHT i get an average connection time of 5 minutes before drop, but download and upload speeds have equaled out and both hover around 50 kb/sUPDATE:using all the above mentioned settings, i limited the UL speed to 25kb/s and left the download limit unlimited. DL speeds average greater than 200kbs peak 259 kbs and has been connected for over ten minutes without drop Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
