Connection Failed Error: Timed Out (10060)


Recommended Posts


I have been using uTorrent very successfully for the last number of years. Only four days ago my downloads stopped abruptly. Did the speed test: The speed failed and the port was open and fine. I read the topic about the same error message and did what the person suggested: I checked my upload speed made and save some changes:

The setting of my upload speed is 573.4 kbits/s. The upload limit is 70 kb/s. My total ratio is 1.886, which is fine, I believe.

I downloaded two files after the changes were made and they went down well. This evening I tried again and there is no movement. Did the test and it's back to what the situation was yesterday.

In the message I mentioned above the member said that my ISP may be messing up the download. Can it happen so suddenly?

Can you help me make some sense of it?

I've been trying to find the T & C section to read up about what you say. I've checked the Privacy Policy link on the website and can't "fair use policy". Where would I find it?

Are you saying that it may be I'm not using it fairly? You won't believe it. While sitting here my file is downloading at a rate of 1.5 mb/s. It's like somebody is sitting in on this conversation. I'd appreciate your feedback, please.

It will be somewhere on their website, do they not have a "search site" capability?

"Fair use" is what your ISP wants to make it, also there is "contention ratio" to be taken into account. A 10Mbps line might have a 20:1 contention (or more) so with all 20 online a 10Mbps becomes 0.5Mbps each.
