So yea, these past couple of days uTorrent hasn't been wanting to connect to trackers. They've been saying "offline (timed out)" so I searched the uTorrent forums to see what the culprit is.
-First they said, "it may be that the settings were recently changed," but I haven't changed them in months (last time I did an OS reinstall). So that couldn't be it, since it was working fine earlier this week.
-Then they said, "have you tried manually updating?" But if it was that easy I would've already have the problem fixed, since that's the first thing I did.
-Then they said, "it could be your router," but my comp's connected directly to the modem. So that one was a dud as well.
-Next they said, "your ISP could have the P2P feature blocked or be throttling their network." But that's not it since Frostwire works fine, and the torrents are still able to download using the [peer exchange] connection at descent speeds.
-Then they said, "well piratebay's tracker got shutdown so that could be it." I already knew that but mine doesn't connect to any tracker, openbittorrent, torrentbox, etc. But strangely Bakabt's tracker works perfectly fine.
-Then they said, "well the tracker may be overwhelmed, wait several hours and it should be able to get a connection." It's been 4 freakin' days. And still not one sign of a connection. Even if it had connected when I was gone I would have seen a change in the torrent's percentage the next time I checked it.
-I even checked my firewall's settings and everything checks out fine.
-I tried shutting off UPnP, DHT, and IP Resolve (consecutively) and still no success.
-I even tried updating to the latest build of uTorrent 1.8.5 but it's still getting the same problem. And yes, I did make sure to delete the previous settings when I uninstalled it.
So, any ideas...
[EDIT] Oh crap, sorry for posting in the wrong section but for some reason the trackers subforum link didn't show up on my browser, only the posts in this section. Then finally once I finished posting it showed up.
Someone mind moving this topic for me please?
