Lose internet (not wifi connection) on iMac when downloading torrents

Post by pb1300 »

Sometimes/most times, when I am downloading a torrent on my iMac, with transmission, I lose internet. I dont lose the connection to my router, and every other device is my house is working as they should. I have to turn the wifi on on my iMac, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on in order for it to be restored. The torrent/s might finish downloading afterwards, or it will do it again, and i have to do the turn off/on process again.

Anyone have any ideas to why that happens?

There are many possible reasons for this, but try limiting your bandwidth usage first.
