j3enator Posted July 27, 2008 Report Share Posted July 27, 2008 I have a problem using utorrent (I think that's the problem). It kills my connection forcing me to restart or put it to sleep mode and turning it back on to gain my connection. This laptop is sharing the same network with two other laptops, two desktops. Only one of the main computers hooked up via LAN into the router Linksys WRK54G, while everything else is using the wireless. Now everytime I open up utorrent to download something 10 minutes later it kills my internet connection. Here's the thing: Every other computer is still working find except for mine which I have to restart or sleep the computer and turn it on again for it to find any available networks. I have a Compaq Presario F572US in my possession for a year nowWhat I did:Updated my network cardTried utorrent 1,8 candidate releaselowering .net max open or whatever in the utorrent optionturned off DHTWas using static ip which I opened ports and port forwarded everything and done everything according to the utorrent speed guide, but now using obtain ip automatically. Read through the Topic Board "utorrent kills my internet connection" and some suggestion does not apply to me, like using a firmware for a WRT54G?What I don't want to do:Use the THCP.sys patcher thing because it says it slows downloadUse firmware suggested because its not the same one and afraid that router will no longer work if I used it.Hardware Specs:Windows Vista Home Premium 1.5 gigs of RAM memory running single channel1.8 ghtz. Processor802.11 Broadcom Wireless Network CardCox Communications Cable ModemLinksys WRK54GSoftware Specs:Comodo Firewall which allows utorrentKaspersky Anti Virus which allows utorrentSpyware Doctor which allows utorrentCan someone help me out as to why my internet disappears? I can't even reconnect and see any of the networks anymore. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
