Try exiting the Torrent application and waiting a few minutes to see if the other PCs in the home can browse the web. If not try disabling or unplugging the network adapter on the PC that was using utorrent for a few minutes and see if the other PCs still cannot browse.
If the situation persist it may be a result of an upstream issue. One such possible one may be that the torrent uses up some amount of resources that result in your service being trottled back or otherwise denied. Power cycling the modem will likely force you to acquire a new public IP address from the service provider and reset connections to the previously leased IP address.

That seems to be a normal result (Lack of intenet access) if you are pulling down torrents if your router is configured as DHCP. UTorrent recommends static IP addressing to optimise the application.

You can restore your connectivity by closing the uTorrent application by right-clicking the icon in the taskbar and exiting the program completely.

The internet said that they can not bring up your web page.


Internet Explore Cannot Display the Webpage
As you browse the Web with Internet Explorer, you may occasionally encounter an error message about the browser being unable to display the requested Web page.
If your browser is unable to display a page, the issue lies somewhere along the path from your computer to the remote website. In some cases, you can resolve the issue by troubleshooting your computer or Internet connection. Internet Connection Issue
If Internet Explorer is unable to display any pages at all, see if you are able to browse the Web on another computer.
If none of the computers in your home can browse, the problem is related to your Internet connection.
In some cases, you can resolve an Internet connection issue by unplugging the power connections for your broadband modem and router temporarily.
If you are still unable to browse, contact your Internet service provider for further assistance.

Malicious Software
If you are unable to browse the Web on your computer but can browse on other computers, the computer itself has an issue. In some cases, this can mean that your computer is infected with malicious software.
Download an anti-virus program on another computer and run it on the affected computer to troubleshoot the issue.


User Error If you receive an error in Internet Explorer when you attempt to browse to a single website, but other websites work, check to make sure that you are entering the address of the website correctly.
By default, Internet Explorer searches the Web for a close result if the address you entered is not associated with an actual website. If you have disabled this feature and enter a website address incorrectly, Internet Explorer displays an error message.

Remote Website Issue

If you are unable to browse to a single website and are certain that you have entered the website address correctly, it is likely that the website itself has a problem.
You can wait and attempt to view the website again later, or search for the website on Google or another search engine and click the "Cached" link to view a recent cached copy of the website.

How to configure Remote access/VPN server role (using windows as my operating system)?


You can configure a server that allows remote users to access resources on your private network over dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. This type of server is called a remote access/VPN server. Remote access/VPN servers can also provide network address translation (NAT). With NAT, the computers on your private network can share a single connection to the Internet. You can find a step by step guide here:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736357(WS.10).aspx

What does utorrent mean when it says download limit reached?


µTorrent is a BitTorrent client. A 'client' in this case is a computer program that follows the rules of a protocol. For example, HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is the protocol used to download web pages and other content - like this page - and your HTTP client (or browser) is the program you use to get those web pages. Some popular browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

There is no download limit for uTorrent. You can download unlimited amount of files via uTorrent. There are lot of torrent sites are there to get the link. For example www.thepiratebay.org. etc.

Can't surf web or download in lucid lynx


You have to make a setting of the network through a terminal and it will work fine after this is being done properly. This is happens due to unconfigured setting in the network adapters. You can also directly make setting with the nework adapters settings. Select the proper modem and connections.

Firewall/ports


Hello there, you only need to open a port for utorrent, if you use a Router device for sharing your internet connection to more than 1 computer. If you do indeed own a router then you will need to log-in to it, via your web browser and change the necessary settings to forward the port that utorrent uses, to your local computers address.

Please write again if you need more support.

Hope this helps.

Cant use web cam on aol


I am having issues using the Video Instant Messenger component of AOL AIM trnsp.gif Answer taken from http://aimtoday.aol.com/features/main_redesign.adp?fid=video_im

Why Am I Having Problems Getting Video IM to Work on My Computer?
You may need an upgraded Windows XP component to operate in conjunction with Video IM.
To use Video IM users may need an updated component of the Windows XP Operating System. Here’s how to upgrade for use with Video IM:
1.First, completely sign out of AIM and any other programs running on your computer.
2. Click here to download the file for use together with Video IM.
3. When the download is complete, click Open or Run the program from its current location.
4. Follow the instructions on screen to install.
5. When installation is complete the program will be loaded but invisible and running in the background.
6. Restart your computer and launch AIM to enjoy Video IM.

You’re behind a firewall built into most home networks or broadband routers …
Although you may not realize it, firewall software may be used by your Internet Service Provider, your company, your Windows XP operating system or even in the hardware in your home that connects you to the Internet. If you have a home network or broadband router, there is likely a firewall built into it.
If either you, or the person you want to Video IM with are behind a firewall and are having problems getting Video IM to operate, work with your Internet Service Provider, your company’s system administrator or modify your firewall software yourself to open ports 1024 through 5000.
Once these ports are opened, Video IM should work if no other issues exist.

It could be your router …
Routers are devices used by your Internet Service Provider, or installed in your home network, to distribute Internet connections. A wide variety of routers will work with Video IM. Below is a list of popular routers that work with Video IM in their default configuration.
ActionTec Geu404000-01
D-Link DI-704P
Linksys WRT54G
Linksys BEFSR41
Linksys BEFSX41
NetGear RP614
NetGear WGR614
Most other routers will also work, however, if yours does not, please report it here.
Also, be sure to follow the instructions above to install components to work with Video IM.
Remember, both you and the person you want to Video IM with may need to ensure your routers are not blocking Video IM.
