I'm having exactly the same problem, PLUS my computer stops responding while Bitcomet is in this state.

1) What version of BitComet are you using?

A) Latest version 1.22

2) What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)?

A) Optus cable

3) Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What make and model are each one of them? Have you forwarded your port?

A) Motorola SB4200 modem, Netgear WNR834B V2 router, no port forwarding as I'm not sure how to do it.

4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem.

Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected.

A) N/A

5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use?

A) Windows XP sp3, Windows firewall is OFF, antivirus is CA Internet Security Suite. (Setting is to "allow" Bitcomet.)

6) If you are asking about a specific torrent or file that you have downloaded, make sure that you include the complete torrent name, as well as the complete names of the files and their respective extensions/formats (e.g.: .rar, .wma, .bin, .cue, etc.).

A) N/A

7) For speed-related issues, please run various speed tests at a site such as speedtest.net (make sure that no other computer is using your Internet connection and that all other programs - including BitComet - are closed, during the tests). Include the results, along with the settings that you are presently using, in your post, so that we may review and offer suggestions to improve its performance.

A) "Speedtest" result = Download - 18.98Mb/s, Upload = 0.29Mb/s.

I have overcome the problem by completely uninstalling Bitcomet.

I then downloaded the V1.22 zip file, unzipped it and ran the executable.

It seems to work ok now, with downloads and uploads acceptable values.

The only problem now is that the status bar shows a yellow button saying,


My Windows firewall is turned off.

My security suite is set to allow Bitcomet.

So the only thing left is the Netgear router.

Thanks for your assistance.
