I'm running Windows 8.1 and when I have uTorrent (v3.4.2) running and start playing a steam game online (CS:GO) the connection times out after a few minutes and I need to reconnect again.
If I close uTorrent there is no problem. I thought this might be related to the number of "Global connections" I had set in uTorrent and lowered this from 200 (the default) to 100. however the issue still occurs. I had a similar setup in windows 7 without issues.
Is there anything else I can try to narrow down the issue?
Can it be my ISP or their traffic management? (Plusnet)
My router? (Technicolor 582n)
Windows 8.1 TCP/connection limit?
Ethernet driver? (connected via powerline adapters)
Any help in narrowing the issue appreciated.
