Windows 7: Utorrent, and hair pulling

29 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 RTM x64
Utorrent, and hair pulling

Hi all, well it seems i have come across my first problem with 7 im not complaining though if this is the worst i get then im lucky. lol

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.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Have you run it in compat mode and all that? Why don't you try Bittorrent or another one and see if you have problems with it.

No. There is no other alternative

Seriously, you could try Vuze.

I have no problems with µtorrent, but I'm not using wireless. have you forwarded your port or are you do you have UPnp port mapping enabled?

Just installed uTorrent on my PC with a wireless connection and it seems to be fine.

I didn't run it in compatibility mode, but as others suggested have you tried that? Is the port also open as maybe if it's closed, it's just causing a problem with the wireless connection on your comp?

I assume you've adjusted your global maximum connections etc?

What does the event viewer log tell you?
