utorrent disabling internet?

Recommended Posts

hello all, i'm new here.

i was wondering if anybody else is experiencing this, when downloading torrent from, lets say btjunkie, the download starts but soon after the internet connection is totally lost. sometimes i have to re enable one of Ethernet jacks, go through trouble shooting etc.

i cant say that it always happens, but it does happen more often than not. i was thinking perhaps it is an issue with one of the trackers (although i do delete those of which that are known to host malware), i have even went down to just one tracker out of say 10, same result.

i am now thinking that maybe it was the result of a windows 7 update, i have no idea i'm just guessing. Or perhaps something to do with internet policing of some sort,

btw i have been using utorrent for at least 3 years, never had this issue, i'm using eset smart security (but this problem was occurring already) i have dual core pentium d (had this for a while as well) and it is Windows 7 ultimate

anybody experiencing these issues, thoughts, comments?

thanks to all

I'm new to uTorrent but a possibility might be a DOS attack when you announce your computer by using a torrent program: If I ever turn off Protocol Encryption within a matter of moments my router gets flooded to essentially uselessness until five or so minutes after I stop uTorrent and reboot the router or at least change the open UPnP'ed incomming connection port. With forced protocol encryption I'm fine. FWIW I'm on Win 7 64-bit with the latest updates.

I understand your response. And I understand that would be the default response. However, that seems to be for speed issues in utorrent itself. I don't have speed issues in the software. Ever since installing my internet is just crap. I literally close utorrent, and my internet works perfectly and fast as supposed to.

my apologies....

i have tried the suggestions...the light is green until the internet connection completely shuts down, its not just in utorrent, it is actually internet connection. the first thing that happens is i get a yellow exclamation point in the icon that shows the internet connection on my desk yop tool bar, short after it is a red x.

i have run the test in utorrent and it sets everything up but the issue remains.

What you have net.max_halfopen set to (Preferences > Advanced in µTorrent), and if you ever modified TCPIP.sys, what you patched the limit to

i have done nothing there

windows 7 ult is my operating system, eset smart security for protection, mi424 wr by actiontec from verizon fios is the router, speed outbound 24.54 and 30.33 for inbound..

please remember the only time i am having an issue downloading torrents, other than that my internet works just fine. its not even all torrents, for instance the other dau a 1957 movie downloaded with no problem, went to download something else today and the issue reared its head once again (actually all 3 times i tried to download a different torrent for the same product)
