@JeremyW could you either add another answer with this explanation or edit our first (because it is not relevant to the real question anymore). Our question explains why it is so in the internals, so I would like to award bounty to you.

@killermist while I agree with our edits, the question is no longer how can I have both uTorrent and DNS, because I gave an answer, question is more why it is so.

@JeremyW that's finally looks like answer. But lowering half-open connection limit didn't help, I set them to 10 but still DNS failed to work properly.

This is correct in general, but in this case it was not the issue. All uploads and downloads were paused. So uTorrent generated only its service traffic. The problem was that somehow uTorrent forced false positive alert on router's firewall.

When you have timeouts on requests I am not sure that Wireshark could help. From client side it looks like DNS server just ignores requests, but router drops either requests or responses because of some false positive alert on IP flood.

@harrymc I didn't know that at the beginning, when asked a question. Once I found that it is uTorrent is causing troubles I immediately added it to question text.

I tried this app, results are strange, usually most of the DNS servers are not responding. Obviously it is impossible that all server out of a sudden stop working. Something is wrong between me and the servers, and I don't know what could it be.
