Re: losing connection

Take a look at these couple of threads and see if they help at all (or at least take a look at all the suggestions we've been throwing at people and see if anything helps you).

Also, what bt program? what router? Is this only happening with that torrent or with others also? Have you upgraded firmware on your router recently or upgraded your bt program?

Re: losing connection

ok well i have my upload jacked all the way so that could be it
using time warner road runner
official bt program and netgear router--the firmware is the original from a few yrs back at least

before i go search for firmware upgrades--anyone know off hand how to check it and update it?

also guess i will try dropping my upload
however this is the 1st torrent i have ever had probs with so i am not sure the upload speed has anything to do with it

Re: losing connection

Good! If I'm just downloading/uploading one show, I cap my upload to about 95%. That seems to allow the best upload and download speeds for me. Of course, this is assuming I'm not trying to surf the net, too.
