uTorrent 2.0 not punching through Belkin router


Recommended Posts

Just a quick heads-up on my experience with upgrading to 2.0 last night. After I completed the upgrade (from 1.8.5), uTorrent immediately stopped to breathe. Nothing in, nothing out. Some digging around this morning showed that after I took down the firewall of my Belkin N Wireless Modem Router F (#F5D8633UK4A), all went back to normal. Following the upgrade, I had somehow ended in a firewalled state. Both router and uTorrent have UPnP enabled. Interestingly, uTorrent continued to breathe even after I re-enabled the firewall (to confirm the problem). All is fine now again.

Upshot of the story: you may have to power-cycle your router after upgrading to 2.0.

Hope this might help someone.
