uTorrent 3.2.3 causes wireless network to drop


Recommended Posts

The details:

HP G72 laptop, Pentium Dual Core T4500, running 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium

Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter, driver version 2021.0.203.2012

Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family Display Adapter (not sure why this might be relevant, but here ya go)

3GB RAM, 50+GB free on disk.

No firewall software installed, Windows Firewall disabled

Freshly updated AVG Free reports system clean

Freshly updated SpyBot S&D reports system clean

About 50% of the time when I open uTorrent and start a file transfer, within a minute of starting, my wireless connection between the laptop and my Netgear WNDR3400v2 router dies, necessitating a full reboot of the laptop to re-establish the connection. My spare laptop retains connectivity, which clearly indicates no trouble with the router. Perhaps it's s problem with the torrents themselves? Is there some setting that may be causing this? Or is there something I'm not considering?

Thanks in advance for any advice...

I've changed both of them, although I think my DNS server appears to have no access to the IPv6 Internet (I've been finding out about this, I don't have too much idea), so I wasn't able to change that one.

Still not working :( Thanks for your advice!
