uTorrent for now, but voted Azureus. I'd choose it over any other BT client anytime anywhere. Im using uTorrent because my new PC crashes whenever i use Azureus.

Since I'm Mac-tastic, I use Transmission. Simple, lightweight, basic. I don't do a lot of torrenting anyway, so it suits my needs just fine.

A common problem when upload speed and/or maximum connections/peers is set too high. My router consistently loses connection from the internet if maximum bittorrent connections reaches like 250. The problem is, most inexpensive soho routers don't have enough processing power or memory to keep up with all the traffic.

My max connections is set to 130 now. It was at 150. I think it seems a little better overall, but I guess we'll see in a few days if my brother hasnt had the problems with yahoo messenger.

Well, just go to a torrent search site like TorrentSpy.com and look for something (something legal ). The torrents at the top of the list will generally have the most seeders (people with the torrent fully downloaded) and peers (people with the torrent partially downloaded) to get the files from. Just download the torrent file and open it and uTorrent pop up. Itl start downloading all of the pieces of the file from the peers. Its pretty simple.

Check the uTorrent site for more detailed info. They have a ton of great info on there about the program as well as torrents in general.

That shouldn't be an issue unless you're downloading illegal content.

In that case it doesn't really matter where you download the torrent from. It's still pretty easy for someone to track you. After all, your IP address is published to the tracker. Which means anyone else downloading the same torrent (i.e. anti-p2p agencies such as MPAA, RIAA, etc.) can get your IP too. All they need to do is run a whois, and contact your ISP.

So, what was the torrent? So I know to avoid it in the future?
