Well it's like you said, your wireless card driver is likely crashing your computer, µTorrent is just a trigger of sorts. If there are no updated drivers, try contacting Linksys as well as trying a different wireless card (or go wired, wired doesn't suck as much for issues like this)... where'd you get a 64 bit driver? I don't see one available :/

...see if you can e-mail, phone support sucks, web-chat support sucks.

Thanks, I'm using at the moment these settings:

Connection: 512 kbit/sec

Upload limit: 30

Number of upload slots: 4

Max number of connections: 250

Max number of connection / torrent: 90

Max active torrents: 2

Max active downloads: 2

NOTE: I didn't have any crashes since my first post. Do you thing I need to change any of the above settings. Thanks

Ive tried that one before and got this message:

Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.

Linksys wireless-G PCI network adapter v4.1


Also changed the setting into:

Max number of connections: 150

Max number of connection / torrent: 70

That made no sense, if you go to the device manager, use update driver on your wireless card, then select it manually, it'll install. You'll also be able to roll back the driver from there. How are your new settings treating you? Go even more conservative if all isn't well after your previous changes (and if the driver isn't compatible with your card).

Contacting RaLink and Linksys may net you better drivers.

  • 4 weeks later...

Firon has advised me to search other threads for a solution to my problem... so I ended up here.

Can anyone help me get a Vista x64 driver for an AirLink101 AWL6080 Wireless-N PCI card? Apparently, the Ralink drivers that I have installed are causing uTorrent to freeze up windows as soon as I connect.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
