0.9.1.2 breaks my internet, no downloading, no browsing

Recommended Posts

just tried out the new version and it breaks my internet as soon as it starts. it may say it's downloading at about 3.2kbps, but it prevents me from browsing online or doing a direct download or anything at all. when i quit the program everything works again. doubt it's a coincident. does anyone have any suggestions? I am on a macbook pro, was previously running 0.9.0.4 with no problems at all.

on another note, it seems that every release after 0.9.0.4 is just buggier and buggier. what is going on? i fully appreciate the efforts of the utorrent team, but guys don't beat a dead horse here...

yeah my number of connections was already limited, i did try reducing it just for fun, but the same issue persists. I'm going to try looking around again for a fix but my hunch is this is another botched release...

It may be still broken in places. But in no case is it botched..or marred as bad as the original 0.9.1.0, that was so botched it was pulled. Feedback into 0.9.1.1 was swift saying things weren't fixed. There are less reports of that for 0.9.1.2

@iammachine: Hrm. Can I assume your upload and download are also limited + you've adjusted them? What's your ISP?

@jewelisheaven: Thank you for what is possibly the most pointless post i've seen you make yet. If you don't have anything useful to contribute beyond rehashing the same "its buggy" statement in a different manner, kindly don't talk.

I did try to adjust to upload and download speed as well, this did no solve the issue. my isp is Comcast.

Another thing which I did not notice at first is that after the program starts up, and my whole internet chokes up and stops working, all the status arrows next to my active torrents go from green to red, which I believe means that it has lost contact with the tracker, probably a result of breaking the interweb connection. I did try to connect over ethernet rather than wireless. This showed slightly better results, I still could not browse or download at any serious speed, but my total torrent downloads maxed out at about 50kbps rather than 3-4.

not really sure why this is going on but I've rolled back to 0.9.0.4, one positive side of the new release however is that it fixed the cpu spikes the previous version had, so it was actualy a lightweight app, it just broke my internets.

if anyone at the utorrent team has any hunches on how to solve this, I'd gladly update to the new version again.

Can both of you post your system specs? Apple -> About this Mac -> More info. Copy/paste the initial page and everything on the Network tab if you don't mind.

I had a similar experience. After a short time, the CPU usage went to 100% for uTorrent and all my firefox connections just kept loading and never returned a page.

Falling back to 0.9.4 again =(

Wow, what a disappointment. Might I suggest that the developers start from scratch with 0.9.04 which seems to work pretty well, and improve that version again and abandon the current lien which seems so full of problems? In other words why are they trying to fix what is not broken on that version?

Im having the exact same problem.

I have the same specs as digitalax.

What I've also noticed with 9.1.2 is that the transfers does some major speed dropings, from maxed out all the way down to 0.0 kb/s. At one point the transfers goes to a complete halt as if they were manually stoped.

Switched back to 9.0.4 by running it from the mounted disk (without "installing") and had the same problems. But it all went away when i ran it from my harddrive (by overwriting the previous one). So far so good, but I dont wanna say to much and jinx it haha.

So I guess we are stuck back at 904 if we want this program to work right. It seems like the developer us stumped on the 9.1.x bugs.

From 0.9.1.2 to 0.9.0.4? Or from 0.9.2 back somewhere else? Either way, you should use the latest version: we don't really support old versions.

These new versions have problems that the old versions do not. Please read all of these posts. We are asking for a fix of the new versions fo mac. Thanks.

also your post refers to 9.2. There is no 9.2 for mac.

"µTorrent beta (0.9.1.2)

Download Beta

For Mac (1.21 MB)

English (US) - May 7, 2009"

this above is the last version and has connection issues that 9.04 doesn't have. Do you refuse to acknowledge this fact?

Do you refuse to acknowledge this fact?

I'm not going to acknowledge something that I can't reproduce and that I haven't heard any details on.

However, note: I'm not a developer of µTorrent. So whether I think there is a bug here or not is irrelevant, I'm not the one that you have to convince.

And you should use the latest version because that is the only one that we provide support for.

Closing this thread since it has to do with 0.9.1.2 (which we're not going to support anymore). If it still happens with 0.9.2 alphas, and you've tried limiting connections/download/upload speeds, please create a new thread.
