Was hoping someone could offer me a bit of help.
We are on the 10GB a month Telecom broadband plan. I am running Mac OSX Snow Leopard and using Transmission as my torrent application. We have a D-link ADSL2 wireless modem.


Up until a couple of weeks ago downloading torrents was a breeze, nice and speedy. Over the last two weeks when ever transmission is launched our broadband connection drops and our wifi network times out when trying to connect to it.
The only solution I have found is to reset the whole modem. No success in downloading any torrents.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Could it be you router is error'ing with the amount of connections?

I know my last D Link router DSL G640t didn't like torrents much.

I believe that's what model we have.
Downloading torrents was fine until recently.
Its getting pretty old now.. maybe time for an upgrade?

is it possible your client updated and defaulting to more connections?

try utorrent and set the connections to under 30 and see if that changes anything.

It's not a isp issue if your wifi drops. as the worst the isp can do is disconnect the internet and you would still be able to connect to the network fine.

This is a Snow Leopard issue, and is not limited to Transmission. It doesn't seem to be affecting all SL users, but I am experiencing the same issue as you. I have tried multiple torrent clients with the same result.

I had no issues prior to installing Snow Leopard, though am baffled as to why as soon as I commence downloading a torrent all other internet traffic dies... not just on my Mac, but on any other device connected to the router. This happens whether the torrent is downloading at 0.3 KB/s or 500 KB/s.

Very frustrating!

I think I may have found the problem, or at least a solution that works in my case.

Log in to your modem/router, and disable UPnP. Just found this tip on the Apple discussions board; have applied to my Belkin router, am running Transmission with 3 active torrents & all other internet traffic is working.


Might pay to move this into the Mac OSX forum :)
