utorrent suddenly stops working properly... help!


Recommended Posts

I have been using utorrent for years and love it.. I have never had a problem. I use version 1.6 because its always worked best for me. I have had my ports forwarded for a long while, do not use zone alarm, peer guardian or anything like that, just avg free. I am getting Seeds: 0 of 0 connected, Peers: 0 of 4345 as example. The problem only started yesterday. One file I have been downloading for a few days (5gb) is almost done and occasionally it will download or upload, but no other torrents. Some of the trackers are working, some are offline, but this is normal.. I tried out a private tracker, downloaded torrents that normally FLY and they wouldn't even download, even though the tracker was online and others were having no problems pulling top speeds off the torrent. I have vista, have my wireless router connected to a desktop pc, I am on a laptop. Below are caps of what you might need to know, if you need more info just ask... please help. thanks.

The Deluge I mentioned earlier is getting CRAP speeds. so... there is still a problem period, not just with utorrent. I have not changed any router settings, so whatever happened just happened... cause its been working fine like this for a long time. Notice my nodes.

I did figure out something. When I took the first cap below I had it on port 50502 and the status was YELLOW, I changed the port to 50503 in the second cap and it turned RED! I have both those ports forwarded... and I know its .100 - I use VNC to check my number... utor52.jpg

Thanks for your help DreadWingKinight

I fixed it. I picked a random port, forwarded it like I did the others and the green check came right on.

I do have a question.... it seems that when I upgraded from 1.6 before I could not connect, or there was a big problem.. Can you give me pros and cons of updating?
