Stuck On Finding Peers - Help!


Recommended Posts

stuck on finding peers and its the latest bittorrent.  Port working and firewall allowing.  I installed bitcomet and utorrent with the same issues.  DHT: waiting to log in.  Also having weird stuff like IE and Google Chrome crashing.  Any ideas? Help appreciated.  I am not computer savvy. Thanks

I can download some torrents but not others. They get stuck at connecting to peers. I have 2 computers running off the same DSL modem that the phone company configured. My modem allows all traffic. The firewall in my DSL modem is not the issue according to my phone company nor do they block utorrent or bittorent.  My antivirus and windows firewall have been turned off for both computers and still I cannot get past connecting to peers with some downloads. I have no computer viruses or malware on either computer. I can download torrents on the other computer that I cannot download on this computer. I can also download torrents on this computer that won't download on the other computer. This is a strange problem. I have never had issues with any torrents ever in the 3+ years of downloading daily. I don't know how to copy my tracker and peer list to this post. However they look something like this.


DHT waiting for announcement--at the bottom of bittorrent it says DHT waiting to log in.

I have not moved. I have done nothing different. Nothing has changed with my computers or my ISP. Just all of a sudden about a week ago this started happening with both of my computers.


I used to only use Utorrent. When this happened I tried bittorrent. Same issues with both programs on both computers.

Both Utorrent and Bittorent the latest versions. I have now started using bitcomet which seems to work a tad bit better. I have gotten a few to download to 100% however some don't. My listen ports are open. Bitcomet shows that. Does anyone have any other ideas?
