Belkin Wireless Adapter Dying Using Torrent
by JBoget - 4/27/11 9:47 AM
So, any time I try to do anytime torrent-wise on my desktop computer here, within 2 minutes or so, the wireless indicator in the bottom right of my screen near my clock shows that orange sun thing indicating my internet has effectivly died.
I can stream HD Netflix for hours at a time no problem, Hulu and Youtube work great as well. I can do very large file downloads direct http download no problem and still no issues, but any time I start a torrent as of late, be it legal files or not, within a minute or two it's disconnecting, and no amount of windows help wizard can troubleshoot it. I have to physically pull the adapter out and reconnect it before it start working again. Download Allods from gPotatoe to check it out last night, and when I try to update it, it kicks in with its torrent update scheme just like World of Warcraft, but it's failing like a basic torrent, and all the disco/reco is getting terriably tireing.
I called Belkin first, they said all the drivers were up to date, then I called Comcast, and the tech swore they weren't sending out any kill signals when they detect torrenting happening, but I'm getting very leary of believing what Comcast says thease days.
So, with the knowledge that EVERYTHING else works, no matter what it is via the internet with my current setup cept torrenting files/updates, anyone have any suggestions?
