Out of the blue one day, I was using the internet on my other laptop when it started acting up. Chrome and Firefox would sproradically be unable to connect, until they outright could not connect at all. However, my torrents in qbittorrent and utorrent were able to continue up/downloading (though very slowly) and other devices and computers are able to connect to my wifi.


I've tried resetting my IP address, disabling firewalls, and some other stuff, but I really have no idea what's going on. It's been like this for a couple weeks now, luckily it's not a computer I have to use often. Does anyone have any ideas?


I'm running Win7 x64


If it means anything, I have also had previous issues where utorrent was unable to make a connection on known working torrents (other computers on network could download them easily), even when my browsers were working.
