Pfc_J Posted February 6, 2010 Report Share Posted February 6, 2010 I've searched and seen the other threads with the same issue. Tried to resolve the issue on my own but am having no luck. I had a similar issue with the 1.8 series on Win XP, but since then I've put together a new rig, so I thought I'd start my own thread.When I add a new torrent for download, uTorrent takes anywhere from 2-15 minutes to start downloading. When it does start it picks up seeds and peers very slowly, and never picks up the full amount as set by maximum number of connections per torrent. The end result being very slow download speed. I've left uTorrent alone to see if things got better over time and it does not. The newly added torrent will just sit there, acting retarded.To get things to work right I have to restart uTorrent. To do that I pause all my torrents, wait a bit to let the traffic slow down, close the program, wait a bit, then launch uTorrent again.Everything works fine upon restart. The recently added torrent immediately picks up seeds, peers, and downloads right to my max.This is a fresh PC running Win7 x64 Ultimate and Version 2.0 (build 17920).My net is 240 kb/s dwn 60 kb/s up, Netggear WNR-3500 + SB4100.I use settings very close to Switeck's conservative settings for my speed: ║56│4║25│100║7│3║UPnP, NAT-PMP, DHT, PEX, Local Peer Discovery, IP resolving, uTP (bandwidth management) all disabled.Encryption enabled with allow incoming legacy connections.. No advanced settings changed. Only private trackers.I do not have any port forwarding, firewall rule, or isp torrent traffic issues. No additional anti-virus or firewall software installed.Additional details to take note of. The delay I experience before a download ever starts seems to vary depending on the tracker, some start faster than others but the delay is there none the less.Newly added torrents for download however are always screwed up no matter the tracker, until I restart uTorrent.
