Packet loss when downloading torrents

7 posts in this topic

ok so im facing a new weird problem and hopefully someone can help me out.

when im downloading with utorrent i constantly get disconnected from web i.e. huge packet loss spikes across the network and not just that machine.

nothing else causes the same problem, downloading with IDM, web browser, even downloading with Vuze has no problem. so this has to be utorrent's fault either cause of a setting or the program itself.

ive been using utorrent for more than a year now and this is new, ive updated it couple of time though during past few weeks.

so far ive tried:

-decreasing the half-open connection number from 100 to 20

-maximum global connection to 20 from 150

nothing has worked so far.

Did you tried to limit your upload bandwidth ?

Usually torrent apps saturate the upload bandwidth.

Are these computers all behind a residential router? Sometimes routers choke or overheat due to torrenting.

hmm yeah that could be the cause. well my setup is like this: lan+wlan > AP > Modem so i guess connect my pc directly to the modem and see what happens.

will update the post with result, thanks.

I second tain's opinion. Either limit the downloading speed or get yourself a better router.

yes apparently the problem was with the router's bandwidth management. for some reason it was causing the packet loss even though that machine was on the list.

thanks guys
