Downloading problems after upgrading to 1.8.4


Recommended Posts

OK, this is VERY odd. I'll explain the situation.

My torrents stall repeatedly (stop downloading completely). They begin downloading at great speeds and after a few minutes (or seconds!!!) they stall. If I stop them and start them again manually, they continue downloading and then stall again. This started happening after I upgraded to 1.8.4 (my connection plan has changed to a faster one recently, the ISP and the cable is the same, though).

Another oddity is, that torrents show availability only approx as much as I have downloaded (say, if I have 7.8% complete, the availability is ~0.078). This is completely wrong - the torrents ARE seeded well (I'm downloading from private trackers) and I see in the peer list that some peers have 100% availability.

Anyone could explain this? I NEVER experienced anything like that before.

Also, I get no errors at all, the log window is clean, the network status icon stays green, I do not lose my Internet connection - nothing to indicate any sort of problem. The stalled torrents do not get the red icon (they stay blue as if nothing happened - they simply do not download).

I tried turning of UPNP (I don't need it anyway since I have the port forwarded in my router), NAT-PMP and enabling protocol encryption. Nothing helped.

It's either 1.8.4 or my ISP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This seems to be a common problem in the forum, but no clear solution to it.
