Red download icon - Unable to download


Recommended Posts

I've read and checked the guides but the problem is still there. It started 2 days ago without any reason at all with all the download icons turning red without download or upload speeds. I have the modem connected directly with the computer. No routers involved.

Things i've done:

Close my antivirus (nod32) and disable the windows firewall.

Uninstalled utorrent, downloaded the 1.8.1 from utorrent.com and installed again

Read the Beginners guide and connection setup guide from http://www.utorrent.com/guides.php. Tried all the steps without changes...

Tried changing the port number (numbers from 45000-60000)

Checked my download/upload speeds at speedtest.net. The result was 3023 kbs / 243 kbs. Direct link http://www.speedtest.net/result/359925438.png.

I tried the following setups at preferences>bandwith:

>Upload limit to 20, Download limit to 350, Global maximum number of connections 750, Maximum number of peers connected per torrent: 100

>Upload limit to 0, Download limit to 0, Global maximum number of connections 750, Maximum number of peers connected per torrent: 100

The tracker tab looks like this for most of the torrents: (this one is from the last naruto episode...)

[Peer Exchange] not allowed

I dont have any trouble for direct downloads or browing with Mozilla.

If someone could help me out with this i would appreaciate it very much.


EDIT: I just download bitcomet and installed it but the speed with this program is at around 1-5 kBs -.- Not sure if it helps you guys...

Your ISP (Fibertel in Argentina?) probably throttles BitTorrent traffic.

Barring that, your international links probably are really bad...so upload/download speeds to distant ips probably stink even if your local speeds are good.

1st and 2nd links in my signature...for more minor help.

My normal download speed goes from 100 kBs to 300 kBs max depending on the torrent but this time it simply doesnt download anything... at first i thought it was a temporary thing but it is the third day already. =(

Been using utorrent for over 3 years never had any trouble... thats why i thought it might be something of my computer and not of the internet provider.

EDIT: I mean how come all the torrents im trying to download have their trackers offlline.. someone help plz
