uTorrent- Yellow triangle icon /no connection

Ask a question


Issue


I have been using uTorrent for a few months and it worked very well. But now the program won't download anymore, the green taskbar icon has turned yellow: "No connection". I have tried to re-install the program, but it won't work. What can be done?

Solution


To find out which port is being used by uTorrent, go to the "Options" menu > "Preferences" > "Connections."
To open this port:
1) (if you already know your IP, go to step 2)
Open a command prompt (windows key + R, then type cmd & confirm with Enter).
2) Type in "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and check your "IPV4" address.
3) Go into your browser, type 192.168.0.1 in your address bar. The user name is "admin" and password is "password".
4) Go to the "Advanced" tab and then "Redirection" section.
5) In the "Local IP" field, enter the one you retrieved in step 1
6) For Start and End port, enter the port number used by uTorrent.
7) In Protocol, select "both"
8) Do not forget to select "ON".
9) That's it!
