I download happily torrents with uTorrent for a long time, maybe 12 hours.
Suddenly, I notice my connection stopped working.
When I check uTorrent is still downloading stuff.
When I check other computers in the same network their internet connection works properly.
I can ping other computers in the network, but I cannot ping any remote IP.
What I tried
When I close uTorrent and open it again, it is unable to generate new connections.
Once I disable and enable my network card again connection works again, yay!
Once I open uTorrent again the same problem comes back, buh!
It's only when I restart my computer when the problem is solved and I can happily download torrents again, yay!
I also tried using a cable instead of WiFi, and the problem also happened.
The problem seems to be generating new connections, since uTorrent keeps downloading once the whole computer cannot use the Internet. And after I restart it, it cannot start downloading anything.
- Since it happens with 2 different network cards, the problem doesn't seems to be the network card.
- Since I restarted uTorrent tons of times, I don't think is that either.
- So what is between uTorrent and the network cards? Network services, so my guess is that the problem is caused by one of those.
I already restarted my computer this time, but what I'll try next time is to restart all the running network services, and check what happens if I change between LAN/WAN on the fly.
Any help is very welcome ^^
