Windows 7: Utorrent, and hair pulling

29 Jan 2009   #11

Windows 7 Build 7048 x64

A very interesting issue... I've not encountered any issue with uTorrent myself with Windows 7 x64.

My first guess would be a program conflict of some sorts somewhere that's causing the anomailies you're getting. I'd look with download acelerators and any other programs that connect to the net.

Please do let us know what happens.

Basically everytime i start utorrent my wireless drops. Not only does the signal go but 7 then says i have no wireless adapter lol.
All works well again on restart. Now the odd time i have got utorrent to start it works fine. If i exit the program however the wireless vanishes. So i dont close it i just stop all downloads and minimize the window. But i would like to know why my wireless keeps knocking out when im using it
Hope someone has had the same issue lol and can point me towards the light.

A bit late to the party perhaps but have you tried disabling uPNP support in uT? That's the only thing that uT does that should directly affect your wireless router...

What does the event viewer log tell you?

2) click the tab shown
3) right click the list and make the selections shown
4) right click again and select log to file
5) wait for the issue to occur and post the log file.

windows 7
same issue

This is also happening to me, I have fios 10/2 and i will drop to speeds of 700kb/1.5k. I have to end some of the svchost proccesses in the task manager in order to fix it, and even then it takes a few minutes for windows explorer to refresh, re-enable and be good again.

This also occured when I used remote desktop..

any help would be good.

It's dead if task manager shows it as dead. Do you see your router in the network folder?

Windows 7 Ultimate X64

I'm using uTorrent actually new version came out yesterday...1.8.2 no problems
Usual culprit is incorrect port forwarding #1(regardless if on wired/wireless, #2 is a lousy ISP

Windows 7 64bit

I found that I had to manually set the ports in the client and then obviously set the same ports in my router.

uTorrent seems incapable of doing this itself on my router.

no problems here with wifi and utorrent... id make sure your drivers are up to date, and redownload utorrent and re install. could run dd wrt on your router also it usually handles p2p better then stock firmwares.
