Hi guys,

My 2nd computer can't connect to internet, i have a d-link router, and yesterday was downloading with Bit Comet, when i got up in the morning, i had windows Firewall ask me if i want to Block or allow Utorent acces to the net, i clicked allow, and since then i am unable to access the net with that computer only.
I really have no idea what to do.....

for fun, temporarily disable firewall.
start>control panel>firewall>disable

see if you get net. if so, there is a rule in it that is improperly configured. if not, we'll check something else.
pleasem post back.

You will probably find that the firewall of the router is stopping the traffic from Utorrent. I am not sure how this effecting the normall internet maybe it is just making it access slowly to the router and timeing out due to the Torrent app flooding the network with requests. Try stoppping the thorrent program and see if the internet comes back. Turning off the firewall is always my last option as this can cause alot of unwanted access especially if you are a avid P2P user.
