    There are some posts about this in the uTorrent forums, did you try that?

    as my initial post suggests i have tried that already and couldnt find a viable solution in google. i dont use peerguardian and i have not changed my system in any way. maybe those trackers added somekind of new protection since my bittornado client works fine.
    but i would like an experts help if thats possible.
    edit: can u direct me to the utorrent forums so i can search there?

    If they had added "some kind of new protection", don't you think you'd have been banned instead?

    Try setting net.max_halfopen in the advanced settings to 8 and restart uTorrent.

    Remember than even in private trackers, you aren't guaranteed you'll get full speed. How active is the torrent? Are you using good max. connection settings in uTorrent?
