Downloading torrent files drops wireless connection

#1
I don't know if this is a bug or a Microsoft security related issue, but when I am downloading a torrent file it works for about 2 minutes, then all transfers stop. (I'm on wireless home network). The connection still reads as being excellent, but I can get no internet access. All browsers stop working as well. When I reboot everything works fine and remains fine until I once again begin to download a torrent file. (Micro torrent is what I am using). Has anybody else run across an issue like this?

Does all large transfer through the WIFI disconnect your internet? Try direct downloading something that's around 500MB-1GB from microsoft and see if your connection stops responding.

A search on the forum shows several people having the same problem: to date no one has reported any fix. I myself am having the same problem. Suposibly RC 7127 fixes this for some people.

Wow.. you have some seriously slow internet. I finished downloading Windows 7 32bit in about 10 minutes flat.

not my net connection, it's ADSL; this problem is in Win 7 OS, or I didn't find the optimal settings for utorrent. On a plus note, I'm writing this from within my nice new shinny Win 7 7127 :) 31/2 days later lol. Like I siad TOO freakin big!!

ADSL can be slow as well. A 0.5Mbit/s connection assuming you're downloading at half the rated bandwidth, a little over 22 hours to download. I was downloading at 25-30Mbit/s or 25000Kbps-30000kbps in utorrent.
