Hi,

A few weeks ago I used this site to successfully download and install all my Sims 3 games because this computer doesn't have a disc drive and I hate Origin with a passion. For various reasons, I was recently forced to uninstall them and so I need to redownload everything.

Unfortunately, this time around, it gets stuck on "Connecting to peers" and won't move past it. Usually, it connects within a few seconds and goes on its merry way. It's the same computer as the last time, but may be worth mentioning that I'm on a different wifi connection. However, this connection is, if anything, more reliable than the other and I have torrented on it countless times before with no issues.

My question, evidently, is how do I get it to download properly? I've pasted a screenshot of the utorrent info window below. I don't understand it too well, but from what I can tell there are almost 200 seeders, but I can't connect to any of them. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, and thanks in advance for your help Smile

Thanks - it didn't work, but I think it was a combination of the machine and the wifi connection. I tried it on a different computer on the same wifi network and it worked. Don't fully understand it myself, but it works so I'm just going to copy it over from the other machine after it's downloaded. Thanks for replying Smile

Maybe there is no firewall exception (for the torrent client) on the Windows system of your 'original' computer?

This here may be helpful as well, in the future:

That being said, if you got a new internet you most likely also got a new router/modem. Accordingly you would need to forward the necessary ports in the router and check additional options. Like, on my own router there is a "firewall", which I was obliged to turn off because it would interfere with my torrenting acitivites. You'll have to check the documentation of your router/modem model.

So...ports. Once you opened ports, you have to insert these ports into your torrent client as well, along with the remaining settings shown in the guide linked above. Good luck! Smile
