The thing is, this doesn't happen all the time. Most days he can download through torrent in the background and surf as per normal. Anybody knows what's actually wrong?


The number of connections, or uTorrent's upnp/nat-pmp maybe be crashing the driver stack. Lower the maximum number of connections and disable upnp/nat-pmp. If it still happens, buy a different wireless card.
