Internet Connection
December 21, 2010 10:14AM
I download torrents with utorrent 2.2 and peerblock 1.0 (r484) and I'm lucky that some near by people leave their wireless unsecured. I download though them however every once and awhile they lose their connection, sometimes for days at a time. I was wondering if their are getting disconnected by their ISP because of my downloading and if so is there anything I can do to stop it from happening, settings in peerblock or in utorrent or even another program, so that they don't put a password on it and so their ISP stops disconnecting them because of my downloading.

First, PeerBlock does not support copyright infringement, so if you are downloading movies, tv shows, game, music, and/or programs, we CANNOT guarantee 100% protection. [www.peerblock.com]

I understand that but the last time their ISP disconnected them I was downloading some free e-books and some programs like Ubuntu 10.10, stand alone installers for Adobe Reader X and Adobe flash for Linux. I like to download this stuff from utorrent because its faster and I can find what I want like stand alone installers. I think that their ISP frowns heavily on downloading any kind of torrents, legal or not.

Talk to whoever you are leeching wi-fi from... that is the only way to find out...

I don't understand how talking to them about it is going to answer my question. These people don't even know what PeerBlock or Utorrent is. I'm not a Newbe I was just wondering if an anyone else has had this problem and if they found a setting or another program that can help to keep it from happening as often. And you know if they are going to, knowingly, keep their connection unsecured then I don't see it as "leaching" it's not like I cracked their WI-FI and I'm stealing it.

Sorry to butt in, but do you know who their Internet provider is. I recently had the same problem with my provider, Road Runner. Apparently either Peerblock stopped working or an IP wasn't blocked so what I was downloading, e-books, was reported to my provider and they deemed me to be in violation of the providers guidelines for usage and shut off my Internet access until I acknowledged the violation, they sent an email. This could be what is happening with their provider and I would be careful about discussing this with them seeing that they are most likely being accused of any violations.

I am sorry to help rear end inside, yes this is might be the problem and due to downloading they disconnected. I guess in the current situation Usenet will be the better choice then torrent. And provides more secure option for downloading and file sharing and a better substitute of torrent. nevertheless have you any idea which their Net service can be. Not long ago i experienced a similar problem along with the service, but now i am much satisfied just because of usenet

LOL - "butt in" is an idiom that means "intrude in a conversation".
