LS-CHL-V2 - BitTorrent download problems
« on: January 09, 2010, 09:34:24 am »
   

I notice that some people have had previous problems with new torrents not starting to download.  Has this ever been resolved?

 

Thanks

Thomas

That depends on how your trying to download the torrents.  Are you using the URL?  If so there are many, many restrictions that could be stopping the download.  I would like you to try this URL and see what happens.

When I try to use the URL you provided, I receive the 'Torrent URL has been sent' message but the torrent doesnt appear in the download list.

 

When I then download this torrent as a file, and choose the 'Add torrent from file' method, the torrent appears on the download list but fails to start.

 

My router settings are all fine and the relevant ports are open.

Although I'm fairly competent with networking, I solved the problem by reverting back to DHCP.  Static IPs seem to cause DNS problems with this device and my router (Netgear DG834GT).
