    Hey all I have windows XP media center edition with a wireless network. The connection strength is good and the wirless network works perfectly fine untill i start up a file sharing program like utorrent as soon as I do that not 10-15 seconds later i lose the connection. It doesn't drop the connection because it shows that I still have a connection but nothing is being recieved and I cannot view internet pages or download anything but it shows it still has a connection but it shows nothing is being recieved.

    I have a wirless g usb network and on the other computer there is a wirless g router can anyone tell me how to correct this it was working fine for a while and I was able to use utorrent and limewire than it took a crap on me. The only way I can restart the internet connection so it works again is by going over to the router and restarting the router. I can use limweir eon the computer with the router but I can't use it with the wirless connection. Anyone know whats going on?


    Thanks alot
    Chris Sprance

    As a starter, you didn't read, or choose to ignore, the forum rules about p2p programs/problems.

    Well it's not about the p2p besides I am using utorrent and utorrent is not only used for illegal download files. I dont use it illegally.
    And its not just with utorrent but also with regular downloads as well just off the internet
