Jasung Aqualung Posted February 22, 2010 Report Share Posted February 22, 2010 Hey folks. Like some others, I'm also having an issue with connectivity with the net while µTorrent is up. I've tried some suggestions that I've found with limited success.Edit: Simplified introduction, system's data removed, post rewrite, and suggestions for others regarding connectivity. All of these suggestions were found within the FAQs or were provided by the moderators or administrators of the µTorrent forums gathered from other threads, except for one which is noted.This is no way all encompassing nor guaranteed to resolve your own situation of connectivity, if you also have that issue. They may not be helpful whatsoever to you. These are just other *suggestions* that you may have either overlooked or just something to consider. Please note, if you perform any of these actions, then the risk is entirely on you. In summary, it's just something -else- you may want to look into. But I hope it helps as we need to help each other around here.Let's briefly look at a couple of basic items.Did you: ---Setup a Static IP? ---Port Forward? ---Allow µTorrent to get pass your firewall?The Suggestions for µTorrent (in no particular order):1 - Try disabling UPnP Port Mapping and/or NAT-PMP Port Mapping. They're located under Connections.2 - Try adjusting your numbers under Bandwidth and Queueing (sic). Drop them low.3 - Under BitTorrent, try different settings. For instance, try disabling DHT, Local Peer Discovery, and/or Bandwidth Management. Try Bandwidth Management first, however.4 - In Advanced, change net.max_halfopen to four or less and change peer.lazy_bitfield to false.5 - Resolve IPs under the Peers Tab. Right-click on one from your list to see the menu.6 - Downgrade to an earlier version of µTorrent. This one is NOT endorsed by the moderators of the µTorrent forums and I suspect they are not allowed to. You won't find it here and you're on your own.Just a note regarding the downgrade suggestion. Other members have said that downgrading does help with connectivity and in speeds -for them- when compared to the current version. However, I did not nor say anything about it one why or another--it's just what others have said. They say it works. For clarification, I'm using the current stable version 2.0 Build 18296. ***For the mods: I checked the forum rules and the sticky thread regarding downgrades and as I understand it, it is okay for members to suggest it. It not, then I apologize. Feel free to remove suggestion six from the post if it is deemed necessary. I'm just trying to look out for other folks.***Well, I hope that helps, but if not there's a lot of us that feels the same pain. Good luck!
