    Hello community.
    I'm having a little trouble with my connection to the internet.
    It works just fine without torrent running on my pc, but when I start It, the NeT goes mad. Completely.
    I have that "network magic" utility that came with my router (and I'm very satisfied with it). With the torrent running the popups "you are disconnected" are keep poping up, like 6-10 times in a minute. In that time I can't do nothing, even router (as well as my home server) don't reply to ping requests.
    But when I shut down the torrent, voila, everything works fine!
    Please, at least give me a hint on where I must look for the answer.

    is it just with utorrent, check your upnp settings in utorrent, do you have a firewall setup, do you have a listening port setup?

    UPNP port mapping in uTorrent is enabled, firewall is provided with an exeption, pc on which torrent is running is in DMZ.
    Tried the tool mentioned by mstombs- makes no difference.
    Also, I have eMule running and it doesn't affect my problem at all.

    did you try to put an upload bandwidth limit on utorrent ?

    I figured out that the problem takes place only if I am downloading something that has many seeders (~200+)
    Problem itself is not solved yet..

    Really doesn't sound like a Tomato issue ... I use BitSpirit so some of our parameters might be different, but if you can limit the "number of inbound/outbound connections per job" to 60, and keep dropping it until you notice any difference.

    Also, just try lowering any uTorrent "performance" parameters until you see improvement .... :)

    Did you try a forum search? uTorrent issues have been discussed before and in most cases has been resolved by tweaking torrent-side default parameters to be more in line with "reality".

    Try looking at this thread ....
