from my knowledge utorrent uses UPNP so there is no need to open ports within the router (UPNP should automatically open these ports for you) attached screen shot examples of my quick test

I would also check your local firewall settings (installed firewall) to see if there is anything blocking your connection.

Try changing the Current Port (within uTorrent) to something else eg 8080 and then turn off Automatic Port Mapping, and manually add a port forwarding rule (TCP/UDP) for port 8080 to IP address 192.168.1.107

From looking at the UPNP rules it using port redirect, which might be the problem

hi tried turn off this and if u turn off Automatic Port Mapping u get network failed and if u turn it back on you get result your port is open your network is properly configured so i think it has to stay on if u look at screen shot of test you will see it is the bandwidth that gives me the error funny thing if i run the test say 10 times sometimes it passes say about 8 out of 10 times fail but perhaps 2 times pass :?: :evil:

Have you tried the following fix

Go to Control Panel -> Network and Internet-> Clicked on Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level Under Miscellaneous, Access data sources across domains, I checked enable. disable DHT (right click at the bottom of the client-utorrent) and select disable DHT. (this fix was suggested on the utorrent forum)
